What can I do tomorrow to make sure I write early? What’s the path of least resistance?
This was last night’s musings, something I wrote here just to remind myself of what I wanted to do today: start writing early.
It didn’t happen. It’s 3:01—approaching late afternoon—and my word count is 0.
I should have tried harder to come up with an answer to those questions, because I didn’t even open this site until a few hours ago, and by then it was already past noon.
Then again, it’s only been 5 hours since I dragged myself out of bed (a 2 a.m. bedtime again after doing so well with an earlier (but creeping) bedtime this week) (but I got my 500 words, so yay!). I woke up much too early and tried much too hard to go back to sleep but couldn’t, so ended up wasting several good morning hours. And I have a headache from lack of sleep.
That kind of thing should count as self-sabotage, no joke.
I’m left with the question: how do I make writing my words the path of least resistance?
Update: It took a while, but I finally started writing sometime after midnight and ended the day with 1,004 words.
