Insert witty writer post here

I wrote 869 fiction words yesterday (1,192 words total) which brought my daily fiction average up to 499. I needed 1,000 words to bring the average up to 500, but I got some sad news in the evening when it was time to write. I got a few more, but then it was clear my head wasn’t in the game. I stopped and went to bed, and then slept until 6:00 a.m.

I don’t have yesterday’s head start, and writing is easier in the morning before my head is filled with a day’s worth of drama, stress, and exhaustion, but my goal is to get my daily average up another 11 points.

Late Start

I slept in this morning until about 10:30, which was fabulous because I love sleep. I wish there was a way to enjoy sleep without losing time, because I want the enjoyment of sleepĀ and to get all the things done. Alas, that is not currently how things work. I’ll just have to keep working the way things are.

Yesterday went well. I got a bunch of errands done including a return (money in my pocket) and a purchase (money right back out of my pocket). I spent some time at Wegman’s writing, since I missed meeting my writing group there on Tuesday, but actually got a lot more done at home than out.

I wrote 255 blog words yesterday. The photo post actually was made after midnight, but I hadn’t gone to bed yet so I fudged the post time to make it before midnight. Before bed is still the current day, even if the clock says otherwise.

And I got a thrilling 1,251 fiction words in! The chapter I was working on went well, so I polished that off in the morning. It was when I went to Wegman’s that I had trouble focusing over the Nick Junior TV in the area I was seated in.I think what I’m most looking forward to right now is having my parents finish moving in so I can return the things of theirs that I have stashed under my desk. I’ll re-clear the surface, get the old computer set up, and have a writing desk that doesn’t face the TV. Oh, and I need to ask a friend to make the Internet go away on that computer completely. Apparently, it’s not hard, but if I know how it’s done then I’ll be able to turn it back on. I don’t want that. I want distraction free writing. My self-control just needs a little boost in this department.

Today I’d like to finish another chapter. Hopefully, that means another 1,000 plus for today’s count. Fingers crossed!
