staying on target

I love how my system is working for me. When I begin in the morning, I record how many words I’m to write (1000). I record how many words are in the manuscript, and what word count I have to get to before I can call it a day.

Yesterday, when I hit a wall, I simply jumped over the wall and kept going. That night, it came to me, how that problem scene should play out. This morning I finished it. So far, I haven’t missed a day.

This is messy, sloppy writing that will take quite a bit of research and revising to fill out, but I suspect the core is there. I’m pleased!
