I decided to be a hard ass with myself. No blog feeds in the morning until I hit at least 500 words. (Once I make that consistently, I’ll bump it to 1K. I know that’s doable–it’s just a matter of making it happen.) I did better this morning, only opening my e-mail briefly to contact my accountability partner, Jenna. (We e-mail each other in the morning when we “meet” Dark and Early with mini “goals” and then report back in aftewards to see if we made it.)
Anyway, I was doing really good until I decided to check my website stats, and then I e-mailed Deena about something…and before I knew it, I’d wasted another 15 minutes.
So tomorrow, I get to e-mail Jenna and that’s IT. Nothing else until I hit 500 words.
I did make the minimum word count this morning. The scene’s at 1592 words and almost done. I’m not sure where it’s going — it sort of morphed on me today. I’ll explore it a bit tonight and hopefully wrap things up.
- finish current scene
- edit existing draft, smooth these new scenes into the mix, and take stock of where I am in the story.
- finish the Day Sheet. I stalled on it and I’m not sure why. I need to figure things out before I get there!
