A Small Victory

 It’s been a hectic week between the day job (good stuff) and some minor family issues (not so good stuff). Progress has slowed, but I still got in 1400 words tonight. I consider this to be a victory. When working a novel I usually go for 5,000 words a week. I exceeded this goal, but can see that I am going to have to focus the majority of my writing on the weekends which is a complication as it requires longer sessions as well as going back and re-reading more of what I wrote before I can start writing for me to keep the voice and tone of the story consistent. 

I hope all of you are having a great week!

1400 aint too shabby, all things considered. I try to shoot for 2k per session, but lord knows that’s hard to hit when you’re strapped for time.

I used to do 2k per session every day when working a novel, but since the birth of our second child that’s proven difficult. I can still manage it every now and then but I’d rather spend more time with the kids — they’re only young once.
