Last week of work before I go on annual leave (sooo much excitement!!!). I still have an essay to write and family arrived a day early….oops.
The words have been flowing and I have embraced trying to write everyday, but more importantly to not beat myself up if I am too tired too or if life sometimes gets in the way. There is always tomorrow.
This week I am celebrating the small wins and the achievement of my small goals. Each tiny step brings me closer to the end. And it’s the journey that counts, right?
Have you had any wins this week?
This blog is quickly morphing into a come join me on my crazy journey as an aspiring author. I think I should do an accountability post. I am slowly realising that I need to tell someone (even if it is on the blogosphere) my writing goals.
Finishing off for the year at work. Family coming from interstate. Uni essay. Holidays. I know I should be grateful for all of the above (maybe not the uni essay) but finding the time to fit in writing is getting harder and harder. I am finding I have to be more disciplined.
I am adding writing to my daily to do list. And yes, I now have a to do list. #ADULTING
So I am pledging to write 5000 words in December.
This may not look like a lot of words but it means I will be writing almost every day – I don’t plan on doing what I normally do for an upcoming uni assignment and wing it until the last two days – literally counting down the clock until its due as I frantically write and try to form a coherent argument, let alone have the correct referencing system. At the moment I can fit in a couple of hundred words a day -in between my other commitments, but that’s a couple hundred more than I would write if I was waiting for the perfect ‘writing’ time. I am also learning the importance of sprints and #500in30 on a good day. Sometimes the muse shows up, other times I’m still waiting but the words are getting written!
Come join me.
How many words are you pledging to write this month?
