Yesterday I did lots of laundry and shopped for produce but didn’t actually get much writing done. I would be disappointed, but when I was idling around and watching Wonder Woman I found an absolutely astonishing post about an author’s success from January to August, and how she did it. I was both impressed and insanely motivated.
The problem with posts like that (and I’ve done this before so I’m not talking about Everyone, just Me) is that it’s easy to start believing that it’s exactly what will happen to you. It’s easy to forget that everyone has different situations, and different work ethics, and different time availabilities, and different resources.
So I’m trying to keep firmly in mind that yes, such astounding results (high six figure sales in seven months) is possible, but there are several things different in my situation than the post I read. I did learn lots, though, things I knew but were worded in such a way as to drive them home. That reminds me that I wanted to take notes, so after letting you know about yesterday’s writing, I’m off to do that.

Then write. I’d like to write a short story today, amidst grocery shopping, etc. I’d like to write it and get it published, actually. I’m intending to do that today and tomorrow actually. Wish me luck.
