I wrote the last 700 words of a short story draft this morning (working title: "The Bells, Bells, Balls, and Rain, Dear"). I also wrote the first 4,100 words of a new story with the working title "Barn Frog." My most prolific day in a long time--I feel GREAT.
And it reminds me of something I've maybe mentioned here before: what really works for me, or has from 2011-now, is to not set my goals TOO high. I have a busy life and other responsibilities.
I have a basic goal of writing at least 5/7 days for at least 15-30 minutes. That's it. I always meet it, for the most part. And when I write 7 days, or write for 3 hours instead of 30 minutes like I did this morning, I feel great. Set a small goal that you can meet, and avoid the guilt that comes with not meeting it!
That said, thanks to Jessica McHugh for the "Story a Week" challenge. I have finished drafts of 12 new stories since New year's because of it!
