This morning I wrote 2000 words, started at 7 and finished at 11:30. I took breaks so my total writing time was closer to 4 hours.
It was a struggle. My mind kept flitting off to other concerns in my life. I kept checking my email and having to pull myself back to the writing. I fidgeted, I looked for other things to do, but ultimately I kept at it.
I read online (and who knows if it is true or not) that Steve King writes 2,000 words a day, others 1,500. If that is true then I feel good at my accomplishment today and can only hope to keep it up. I’d actually like to write more each day. Take a break at noon and then return and write another 500 to 1,000 words. We will see if that is feasible.
Writing is hard work. It is not for the weak or the easily distracted.
