It’s been a long, but productive weekend. Looking over my stats for this week and I feel good. I wrote 3357 words today and laid out four new chapters. I’ve managed to write over 12,000 words since taking this challenge to complete my book by my birthday. I’m feeling more confident about meeting my goals. I’m working at staying positive and moving around to different rooms when I grow tired of my office. Today was a great day to write because it was rainy and stormy outside. A good day to be indoors. The twins blessed me with long naps this afternoon, too.
This has been a challenge, but a good one. I invested in Dragon Dictate software to help me meet my deadline. Now, if I can just figure out how to get it to do what I want it to do. Another good challenge. I’m going to get into bed a bit early tonight and rise early in the morning to play with Dragon. However, I will limit it to no more than one hour because I have a lot of writing to do tomorrow.
I want to thank everyone for your encouragement. It means a lot to me. It’s kept me going when I wanted to back away early in this process. But, my WisRWA friends have held me up and kept me moving forward. WisRWA has to be one of the best writing organizations with the most positive and helpful people in the country. Thank you, all!
