This week I’ve written 2250 words on the new project. That breaks down to 750 Last Sunday, 450 on Monday, 350 on Tuesday, 450 on Wednesday, 0 on Thursday, 250 on Friday, and 0 yesterday (in my defence I did try to write late on last night but the cat interfered). Not much of an excuse but it was gone eleven that I decided to write last night.
The last few weeks have felt busy. The day job is always busy, so there’s not much of a change there. Outside of work though I’ve had a few more evenings than normal when I’ve been away from home, and at times when I’ve not been feeling especially well. I have a kidney stone, which although not the most dire of problems, when it hurts, it hurts!
So writing in the evenings just hasn’t seemed like a possibility. I did have one night this week where I was working on edits on a short story but the rest of the week seems to have been just having enough time to eat and bathe and then it was nearing bed time. When I think about it, it feels like the last few weeks have felt like that.
I am writing by hand now, and although I am a little slower with a pen than tying I don’t think I’m as much slower as I think I am and I think I’ll be able to still get to the 1000 words a day if I can get some writing done in the evenings as well as my lunch breaks.
