I decided I was going to try to crank out 7,000 words this weekend to make-up for lost productivity. I was getting a little panicked that this is the last week of National Novel Writing Month.
Friday night I was up until 3 a.m. I wrote for hours. At least it felt like I was writing for hours. I was distraught when I went back and calculated how many words and it was only like 2,000.
Saturday. I sat down for a productive afternoon of writing. And then I was sucked into Hallmark Christmas movies. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and I’m already getting sucked into Christmas movies.
Sunday. Today was actually a pretty productive, thanks to writing sprints with my friend Niki. There is something about imposed deadlines that help me crank out the words.
My grand total for the weekend: 8,904. This is proof that if you push hard enough, write in small chunks and set incremental goals, 7,000+ words in a weekend is possible.
Now, I need to get some sleep.
