This evening I’ve managed to get just over 1500 words written in under an hour, that fifteen hundred words took me over the 150,000 words for the year! 😀 This Writing Journal App is working out really well for me and I’d strongly recommend it to anyone to give a try.
As I expected I didn’t get a word written last night, but I had a good night out for my works Christmas party. I didn’t get home till almost 1am and I’ve got to admit I’ve felt it a little today. Which is a little surprising as I’ve had a good nights writing. It’s nice knowing I can skip a day and then get straight back into the groove that I’d left. It’s not something that I’ll be doing often though. My aim is to write daily and if I miss a day then it has to be for a good reason.
I’m still feeling good about my writing. I am firmly convinced that the more I write the happier I am, in not only my writing but myself also. Next year is going to very exciting if I can keep this up 🙂
This weekend is going to be a busy one. I’ll finish work tomorrow at 2pm and then a quick haircut and then home to clean out the henhouse. Then it’s a case of squeezing in a minimum of 2000 words (I’m working off a minimum of 1000 words a day). wrapping presents and writing out cards, Demolishing a shed in preparation for a new henhouse and a bloody good tidy up, which includes my DVD/Blu-Ray collection and my bookshelf.
That’s a lot of work to do in a day and a bit, so needless to say I’m not expecting to get it all done. I think the tidying up will be the parts which get dropped. The other bits do need to be done this weekend if I can.
Right I’m off now to make a spreadsheet so I can keep track of my submissions. Still only one so far but next year I’m planning to get a fair few sent out and see what response I get 🙂
