My Goal: Finish revising my friggin’ book already!
The road to my goal: 250-500 words on workdays and 500-1000 on my days off.
The sometimes detour when I get stuck: Plot the next book.
Friends, this week was a test. I’m sure of it.
We’re understaffed at work, which means those of us left have lots to do. Sunday found me working in an area I haven’t been in for years. I remembered the basics, but it still wasn’t the same. Needless to say, I was confused about what to do. When that wasn’t happening I was grumbling at the inefficient way the work was being done. It really bugs me when I see a clear way to make life easier and no one else does.
I left work angry and in the mood to do nothing that required thought. Even something I love like writing. Well, here’s the thing.
I want to write for a living.
And the only way to do that is to release good books. A key ingredient to this plan is writing the good books. Everyday I don’t write because I’m angry about work or something else in my life is one day longer it’ll take to reach my goal.
So, I took my anger home, fired up the computer and poured it out into my WIP. I didn’t break any word count records, but I passed my goal of 500 words.
Both on Monday and Tuesday I added another 250, despite having equally cruddy days.
I know this was basically the theme of last Wednesday’s update, but I thought it warranted a repeat. It seems my journey is going to be a daily struggle. No big. I’m finally so mad, I’m not going to take it anymore.
