Day 12: 743 Words in the Early Morning

May 5th, 2015 by Steve


Yup. Got up at about 5:30 this morning. Wrote a quick scene. 743 words closer to the finish line.

Sleepy now. Want bed.

Some mornings I’m just awake. Stupid early, too. But if I’m not getting back to sleep, I may as well do something constructive with my time. And, let’s face it, writing is about the only thing I can accomplish at that time that won’t wake the rest of the house.

So, yeah, that was my day. I wrote more words before breakfast than most people do all day, and I feel pretty good about it. Not in a smug, self-righteous, “I’m better than the rest of you non-writing scum” sort of way, just in a “Hey, look at that! I made effective use of my time” sort of way.

It’s the little victories that really add up.

Today’s stats:

Daily total: 743
Accumulated total: 8,372
Average daily word count: 697.6666666666667 (Almost there!)
Progress toward target: 9.2%

Fingers crossed, I’ll hit the 10% milestone tomorrow. Here’s hoping.
