first steps, getting there, goals, sick, word count, writing
So this is going to be a fairly short post.
The good? I started writing yesterday. And I’m not gonna lie, it felt good to get the words out. I’m never sure if it’s great, or if it’ll keep through the rough draft edits, but words out are words out and I can expand or compress later. I really need to stop worrying about the future of the draft and focus on getting the draft actually out of my head.
The bad? It wasn’t nearly as much as I was hoping to write. Though it’s a start. A single step in the right direction. I just need to make sure I follow that step with more throughout the week.
I will say part of not hitting my goal was because I started to not feel well, and that’s continued into today. I’m wondering if I should have stayed home with how I’m feeling, but with two hours left once I’m off the little break, it’s already too late to do much but tough it out and crash on my face when I get home.
I am looking to get more words out, by tooth or nail tonight. Though quite honestly I may take an offline approach and notebook the word count from bed once home.
