Day 24 and things are still going surprisingly well. No, I’m not writing every day, but I am writing every few days and I have now surpassed the number of words I should be at by 31st Jan. With 7 days of the month to go, I’ve got plenty of time to keep going and get well ahead of
I’ve also been jumping between 9 short stories which average at around 2500 each so far. This may be the trick; not focusing on one project but leaping around when I feel the inspiration or get bored/hit a blocker on another. I’d like to get some of those onto the first draft complete stage because ultimately I want to get more of these published.
To help me on my way I’ve also taken a bit of procrastination time to create some graphs. I hope to use them to inspire me to push on, or give me a kick in the arse when I’m not hitting the targets. The picture attached shows the progress across January so far (per day) with a red line of target words per day. It looks spotty at the moment with so many days where 0 words are hit, but hopefully those gaps will get closer together (and eventually disappear) as the year progresses.
Okay, off to add some more blocks to that graph.
