It’s another 10,000 word weekend!!!
Scratch that. We’ll make it 12,000. What better way to ring in the New Year than with a great burst of productivity? And what better way to catapult my current work in progress past the halfway mark?
While New Year’s partiers are consuming vast amounts of alcohol, I plan to fortify myself with a pot of coffee (or several) for the long weekend ahead. Some might pity my sobriety and lack of revelry, but I’m super excited about the upcoming weekend. It doesn’t feel like work at all, and I don’t feel the least bit pressured by the goal I’ve set for myself. This is a gift to myself: I’m making time to do something I love to do, something for me and me alone. The 12,000 word goal is a commitment. It’s a declaration of intent to put my writing first, if only for the weekend.
Happy New Year everyone!
