Yesterday, I wrote over 8,000 words. It occurs to me that if I wrote this way every day, I could finish a novel every week or two. Certainly every ten days. Which means that I really have no more excuses for taking months to get something finished, or write a sequel, or meet a deadline I said I would meet (because they’re all way more generous than 10 days…)
Admittedly, there is the writer’s block, and sometimes there’s nothing you can do about that. But 8,000 words in a day? If I can do that – heck, just one day of doing that boosts the process tremendously.
I realize that posting this is probably condemning, because there’s no way I’m actually going to suddenly stick to 8,000 words a day, but it threw things in perspective enough that I thought it worth mentioning, and maybe mentioning it will help me be a little more accountable, even if I’m not finishing a novel every two weeks.
But however that plays out, the good news is that this means I boosted Lifebreath to a whopping 72% complete last night, so…we’re getting pretty close now 😀
