Writing for Jan. 3, 16

I had a great day writing yesterday, dedicating a solid 3 1/2 hours to my books. I’m using a round robin method combined with a pomodoro timer to keep myself interested, so the day doesn’t go to one single title. While this might slow down getting any single one book completed, it moves numerous titles toward completion at a fairly decent rate. I would also argue that because I am BIC, it’s not slowing anything down. What’s the alternative? Writing a thousand words and deciding I’ve written enough for the day? As you can see by my numbers from yesterday, what I’m doing works for me. So far. 🙂

The week is looking promising. I’m already at 11,534 words, and that’s in only three days. Using the pomodoro technique (using a timer for 25 minute writing bursts), I’m averaging 1500 words an hour, although yesterday alone, my writing average hit 1700 words. I am thinking about going up to a full 30 minutes and see if the extra five minutes will take me to 2k words an hour. Maybe next week. 🙂
