Home of a mother, wife, writer

So, I doubt the truth of that statement. But, anyway if you read my post from Friday(Okay, Saturday), you already know I did not get much accomplished in the last week. It actually did not start out too bad. I had trouble getting back into the swing of things Monday and only wrote a little over 200 words. Then, Tuesday I wrote over 1900 words and thought I found my groove again. Wednesday and Thursday though I didn’t even hit 700 words, and I did not write anything on Friday. I am way behind where I wanted to be at this point, but I’m not beating myself up about it too much. I do plan on kicking my butt back into gear this week but am going to be adjusting my goals. I want to get at least 1000 words written a day. To do that, I’m still going to wake up early and get as much written as I can before the kids wake up. Then, during my son’s first nap, I will write until I meet that goal. This will be a lot easier once my daughter starts pre-k at the end of the month and doesn’t want to play during that time. Hopefully this will keep my on track for the rest of this round.

  1. Well done on the days you did manage to write last week and I hope you are able to make your 1000k limit each day. Good luck!

  2. Sometimes it helps to get a bit of amnesia. Forget what you did not do yesterday. Convince yourself that you do a thousand words every day and then do today’s thousand.

    We all beat ourselves up in tiny little ways, just by mentioning the failures, rather celebrate the successes.

    Sometimes if you push too hard your creative brain freezes. Try some deep breathing yoga style before you start to get yourself acclimated-that usually gets my juices flowing. It triggers my brain into “okay we’re writing now” mode. Other times I take a notebook into a quiet corner away from the keyboard and write longhand for awhile–then put it into the computer later.

    Good luck this week!

  4. go easy until you have child free time – even a couple of words written is couple of words more than none – it’s difficult with children- be kind to yourself – all the best for this week

  5. I agree, kudos to you for getting that many words written on the days you did write last week! Wishing you luck (and consistent early mornings) on accomplishing your 1,000 word per day goal this week.
