It’s day eleven and progress is slow going still. By day seven, I knew I wasn’t going to reach my word count goal. That’s when I realized something important–word count goals just don’t work for me. Instead of following the advice of the eight gazillion books and blog posts on writing that I’ve read over the years, I’ve decided to try things my way. I’m going to shoot for hours spent writing rather than number of words written. My new goal is 50 hours of writing. As of this writing, I’ve accomplished just under eight hours, so I’m still behind. Over the weekend I hope to play a little catch up by putting in as many hours as possible. Wish me luck.
