I think I wrote 1400 and something words yesterday, I haven’t got my stats to hand for the exact number. I had around 800 words for the day by the time I got home with the intention to try and write a 1000 to 1200 words and try and get back on target. That didn’t happen, not even remotely close. After getting going dinner arrived. Then after I ate that and was just getting into my rhythm I had something come up that I had to deal with. Something that I hadn’t seen coming and something that I was hurt and angered by. I won’t go into what it is out of respect for the person who’s idiotic naivety caused all this. But for writing cost, I lost an hours writing time and am demoralised now.
This has caused me to go from being very confident I could hit the 50k this week to now believing that I won’t hit it. Last night did cause me a lot of stress and has hit my optimism. I needed a good word count last night as I’ll be visiting my Grandad, whose in hospital, tonight. I’ll be doing that again Thursday and Sunday, but I doubt I’m going to be able to write more than 1000-1200 wors those nights.
Saturday I’m off out with friends and Sunday, afte visiting my Grandad, we’re be spreading my late Nan’s ashes. I will have a few hours Sunday morning so I’m really going to give it a go then.
I know it doesnt matter whether hit the 50k or not, but I’d like to do it out of pride and as a way to proove to myselfe that I can hit a target.
I’ve got to go and get ready for work, these posts may drop off a little this week as I’ll be trying to get as many words down as I can, when I can.

Personal issues have to take precedence good sir. If matters outside your control have hit productivity, then that’s not something you should beat yourself up for. Do the best you can, and that’s all that you can be asked for.

Thanks Matt. I’m going to still crack on but I know I’m not going to hit the 50k now.
