My usual morning routine goes something like:
- Get out of bed
- Wake others
- Feed cats
- Make coffee
- Wake up
When my routine is interrupted, it’s difficult, and normally will throw my entire day into a tailspin. Not going to let that happen today, though.
A family member is sick, so one of their usual responsibilities falls to me. That’s going to have to be okay, even though I’m not feeling okay right now. It’s a thing. It’s not going to take over my day. (Yes, I’m operating under the “fake it ’til you become it” philosophy.)
Writing yesterday was not bountiful, but went well. Last year I started tracking my words, and I ended up with a lovely spreadsheet full of formulas to get me all kinds of interesting numbers. Here’s what I have to share this morning:
Nickified – 390
001 (Space Cats from Space) – 617
001 Total – 10,765
Daily Total – 1007
Weekly Word Total – 8,785
Monday is the start of my new week. And so today, I also have weekly totals from the week previous.
Difference from previous week’s totals – 1,719%
Week 2 rank – 1
Weekly average word count – 4,634
Clearly these numbers don’t mean as much in week two as they will in week three. Week one was one day – with 483 words. But it gives you an idea of what I’m tracking. If you have any ideas on anything else I could post about, helpful or otherwise, please let me know in the comments!
