And once again, I’m awake and blogging after 4 in the morning. My excuse? I wrote 846 words but am still 3926 words behind. I think that’s reason enough to stay up late.
But my main reason for this post is that my time line issues are over! It took me a week, lots of comfort food, music, tables and spreadsheets and multiple windows open side by side, but today I did it. With a bowl of my favorite biscuits (ginger nut), the door closed, a Textedit document and a NeoOffice document open, I finished untangling that knot.
This, in turn, helped me to keep writing chapter 21. Had I not persevered, I would not be writing chapter 21 today.
Conclusion? Persevere and ye shall be rewarded with a higher word count. And happiness.
Total word count: 43734
Chapter 21 stands at: 640 w0rds
PS: It would appear I’m not the only one who, in the month of August, has given herself a certain amount of words to write per day. Nikki-Lee and Angela have both giving themselves goals. Go to their blogs and congratulate and encourage them. Why? Ye shall be rewarded with a teaser on Nikki’s blog and interesting facts about Japan on Angela’s.
“Why?” you ask again.
Oh just go do it.
Because I say so!
