New Fish; Learning About Thick Skin
I can get caught up...
So twice now I've had a bad day and managed to burn the candle at both ends until I was caught up on the missing day and caught up on all the days where 1300-1500 words were "good enough" word count days for me. Miss three different days actual word count and that's as bad as missing a whole day.
So twice now I've put my head down and ground the words out. I'm back exactly where I should have been had I done every day's full word count, but now I can't seem to ever get ahead. I stopped today at seven p.m. with 18, 984 words. I finished at the end of a scene, but the next scene is going to be just as interesting. I could have gotten quite the head start on tomorrow, but instead it's 12:34 and I'm wiped. I'll probably go to bed as soon as I finish typing this and wake up tomorrow, 1660 words in the hole for the day.
Gah! Why do we do this to ourselves?
Maybe we're gluttons for punishment? Or addicted to headaches?
Good luck on the wordage! There's still over half a month to go, plenty of time to catch up.
