November 6, 2021 - Days 3, 4, and 5

Saturday, November 06, 2021

I’m finding it hard to keep up this writing diary on a daily basis. After spending two hours split into four writing sprints, so it’s longer in real time than that, the last thing I want to do is more writing. Especially on days when it doesn’t go so well.

That describes Thursday, when I only got roughly 600 words. But they were new words, even if there weren’t many of them and even if they weren’t very good. Yesterday and today were better, with over 2,000 words each day.

I’ve found that I do best when I split my writing time into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the evening. Like my aging iPhone, my batteries don’t hold a charge as long as they used to. I need to do something in between, something that’s not writing.

I’m not sure whether I’ll write tomorrow or not. I usually make Sunday a day off because it’s good to have one day a week with no pressure. But I’d like to get ahead on my word count so that when the inevitable dry spell hits me later in the month, I’ll still stand a chance of completing 50,000 words. I’ll see what happens.
