Jumping Back Into Writing, and Priorities

Today’s word count: 908 words

NANTUCKET total word count: 62,639 words

Well, not really “jumping” back into writing, I guess. “Easing" back into writing is more like it. I fell a 1000+ words short of my 2000 words a day goal.

And I guess I could fix that right now, but I’m also experimenting with shedding my night owl identity, which means even though it’s only 10:30 pm right now, I’m already starting to feel droopy eyed. It’s a good thing I’ve also decided to make my writing goal my number one priority – it’s now the first thing I do every morning (well, after e-mail and a quick Twitter check).

I say “it’s now the first thing I do every morning” so confidently, don’t I? Today’s my first day of making my writing goal my priority, but I figure the more confidently I say it, the more likely I’ll stick with it.

I’m also committing to this for 30 days. It’s how I established my daily writing goal, so I thought it might work with this, too. And as before, I’m blogging about it to keep myself accountable. Hey, if it works, I’m going to use it!

    Thank you! I’m glad I let myself off the hook and was okay with easing back into things. Today, it’s back to normal, plus yes! Day 2 of “make writing a priority” was a success. I did that before I got to work. It feels good :)

    Welcome back, I missed your daily word counts!

    Your new plan sounds great, I’m sure you’ll have the same success as you did with your daily writing goal.
