I knew words would be tough this week, but it doesn’t make it any easier to handle to see low four digits instead of five. I’m going to use that as motivation for this upcoming week and was even able to use it a bit last night.
Just write the next sentence, don’t delete anything, and make it work. I know I can. There’s nothing wrong with my writing skills. Not sure if that sounds boastful or not, but I can afford to be confident. Seriously, nothing I write is Pulitzer-prize worthy, but I can string words together and make a fine story. I do better than some, and no worse than a lot. And I’m a hard worker.
The past week involved a 24-hour day (har-har, they’re all 24 hours) that I was awake for at least 23 of (so sorry to the driver I conked out on). I made it home just exactly at the time I usually wake at. So the weekend was off-schedule for me, which only makes things more difficult.
I do like my schedule.
But I’ll hop back on the horse today. Wake at 5 a.m., sleep at 10:30 or 11 p.m. Day job involves doing one task the best I can, then moving straight on to the next task. (Tasks are easier when you look at one at a time instead of all of them at once, I find.)
Enough dilly-dallying. Here are this week’s results:
Challenge Words: 2,086
Weekly Total Words: 3,302
Difference from Last Week: -70%
Week Rank: 17 of 24
Average Weekly Word Count: 6,433
Difference in the Average from Last Week: +2%
Days of Writing: 137 of 164
Grand Total: 154,966
And for what it’s worth, already today I’ve managed another 569 words toward the completion of the story I’m working on. The story I really, really need to finish today for my personal sanity. And another would be lovely if I could manage it, before the end of the week.
Wish me luck!
