It’s been a while – all my words are being used up in a novel.
We’re more than halfway through the month, and no two days have felt the same. One day I’ll write a lot and be ahead, the next three days I won’t write a thing and I’ll refuse to open the word document.
Right now I’m on track. I haven’t written today’s words, but I’m fairly confident I can get there – I only have to write another 1,000 words and I’ll hit the daily goal. Last night I wrote til late because I had to catch up on 3,500 words. But hey, that’s cool. It was an experience.
There are two problems contributing to my lack of motivation:
I walked into the library empty handed and left with eight books. At the start of the month I told myself that as a reward for reaching the 50,000 words I would go to the library and spend the next three months hibernating with a stack of books. But I was driving home from work and I couldn’t resist the pull! And eight books isn’t many for me; I held back, honestly! I tried.
So I’ve been spending my nights reading instead of writing.
The Sims 4 brought out a new expansion pack. The dangerous cycle begins once more, in which I spend all my time playing Sims until my eyes are shriveled up raisins and I’m dehydrated.
Still, I’m on track with words (despite the roller coaster that is self-discipline) so I must be doing something right.
Well. Time to go play some Sims – I mean, write some more.
