Writing Blahs and Writing


The writing blahs are here in force.

Word counts for the last few days:

20 Jan – 100

21 Jan – 500

22 Jan – 450

23 Jan -200

24 Jan – 100

25 Jan – 600

Not that anyone wants to know my word counts, I’m sure. But I need to put it up, because it shows to me how much work I need to put in to keep up my resolution of 1000 words a day. I’m hoping that flood will follow drought, and that I shall make up the numbers soon.

I know being obsessed with numbers seems like the wrong attitude, but at least in this way writing remains in my mind, and if I can get writing to be a daily habit (anything can be made into a habit, I’m convinced), I shall have a much easier time of it in the long run.

  1. Thanks for all the encouragement, guys and gals!

    Here’s the word count for the last two days:

    26th Jan- 200
    27th Jan- 0

    Still waiting for the flood! In the meanwhile, am sitting long hours at the keyboard and with the pen, doing anything but writing.

  2. No, I think it’s good to keep track. But if you are writing everyday, no matter the word count, you are forming a habit.
    And the flood will come.
    I have days that I can write over 5k. Then there are days when I’m lucky to get 100. The key is to write. To edit. To read. To hone your craft.
    Keeping track is good, it lets you know how you’re doing. But it isn’t everything. Writing is.
    So hold your chin high.
    You’re doing great.
    Not quite the drill sarg you signed up for, huh? :)
