Yeah, I think I’m really going to go for it, writing every day, shooting for no less than 8k a day, and upward to 16k a day on the good days.
This Wednesday through Saturday I’m working for the Post Office, so each of these are 8k days. Unfortunately, a day job means I can’t start quite as strong as I’d like. But then again, it also allows me to determine my level of grit.
So speaking of Grit – have you checked out Angela Duckworth’s Grit Sale? This is something that definitely applies to us writers – whether or not you can finish projects, how distracted you get, etc.
How did you score? I think it provides some valuable insight where you might find you’re hindering yourself.
