Day 105 Reporting – 2,024 Words/Day Process Log – Small actions

Yesterday, I mentioned that any time I’ve succeeded it has been due to small actions taken consistently over time. No where is that more evident than on the days I reach the 2024-word goal. I don’t do it with one piece or at one sitting. Below is what it looked like on my highest word count day this week:

2,694 words =265+331+404+1358+336

And now you know why I’m a fan of writing a page or 250 words. I’ve proven to myself that I rarely only write 250 words in one session or on one piece. The 1,358 is from fiction writing. I think the 336 words is on a fiction project, too.

Some days, I’ll wake up and think there’s no time to write because I overslept. Yet, unless the circumstances are unusual and by unusual that means unusual, I can always get to the page and if I can get to the page, I can write 250 words.

The page is to build up momentum. Oh, and also to get me a sticker for my Done calendar. The stickers are where it’s at.

Keep moving forward. Keep getting better.
