I actually have multiple things going on here right now, trying to find ways to get myself to write more often, more words, and with more consistency.
Not only am I attempting to write every day, I’m also trying to reach and maintain a 2,000 words a day average.
Today is day 27 of my streak of writing every day (which assumes I will stop writing this and actually go write some fiction in a minute!), so Yay! for that, but the last day I reached 2,000 words in a day was seven days ago, so not so yay for that.
However, I’ve put some things behind me, and I’m hoping today will be better.
My plan is to write for a minimum of six hours today (using a countdown timer set for six hours) and write a minimum of 2,400 words. I’ll need a pace of 400 words an hour to do that IF I run that timer all the way down to zero. I do plan to do that. :D
I tried this the day before yesterday and came up short on time. I also came up short on words. I was distracted and that distraction made me write slowly and I lost a lot of time.
I’m going to try not to let that happen today. Now, I’m off here to go write for six hours.
