I’ve just realized what I’ve been doing the past few days — I’ve been teaching myself to write everyday. Before it’d be "I’m writing!", i.e. "I’m on the computer and I’ll write if I’m inspired." In the past week, I’ve been writing more consistently. 500 words one day, nothing for 2 days, then 500 words, nothing, and then bam! 1210 words. And then I reached the goal I set. On time.
I’m growing as a writer and I love it. The words I’m writing are average at worst, and good at best (and occasionally great). But the point is they’re there. I just need to get this novel written, then I can add the quality.
Today’s word count, for now: 809. My goal was 784. Tomorrow’s goal was also 784, but now it’s 784 minus today’s extra words. Or the same to be in advance. We’ll see. *glows with happiness*
EDIT at 4.28 a.m.: 1020 words!
