I do. But in my case it just turns out to be....well, bait. I take it every time. :D

All the time. I managed it, too. "I will not look at AW until I've written X-thousand words, cleaned my living room and done the dishes."

I wonder when my self-control will run out.

nope. because I hate breaking promises to myself.
I am, however, kicking myself out of here soon to do some work on draft two. I'll check back in when I want a break.

Occasionally I'll say: I will not look at AW again until I cool off.

But I usually do it anyway.

This is THE thread I need. I'll be checking this thread in 5 minutes.

Seriously, I won't be back on AW until I write at least 1000 words.

Take care.

That's just setting myself up for failure. But I'll give it a go.

I will not look at AW again until I inhale and exhale.

Wish me luck.

I will not look at AW again until I decide on four more agents who are appropriate for my work. I'm thinking there aren't too many out there. LOL.

Also, I am bound to fail at my "I will not look" promise. ;)

Nah, I just do whatever comes to mind, but I always eat chocolate first before I start writing.:)

I usually have AW's screen minimized while I'm writing so I can check in every six-and-a-half seconds. It's addictive.

See ya'll in a couple hours.


I've been swearing to stay out until I get some more outlining done... I've done no outlining, but I have started a new chapter, and I'm 175 words in. So there!

:)

Off to try some more.

I had 3 chocolate brownies. They do help. :)

It's so HARD to stay away! I know! When I get excited for plugging a few words out, I want to run into AW's arms and share with all of you. It's a curse. A good one though.

Oh CR4P! I have writing to do! Geeze... thanks for the reminder!

JoNightshade

I did it! Chapter 21 is done.

Gosh, don't you people have any self control? :)

(Okay, actually I don't have any self-control unless I tell someone ELSE about my vow, and then I have to prove that I can do it, hence this thread.)

Well, I usually multi-task. I'm going back and forth between AW, writing an article and watching Oprah.

They sure do help, huh. I had a yummy chocolate eclair. Chocolate and you guys rule!:)

Okay, I will not look at AW again until I finish revising chapter 22.

See ya in ANOTHER few hours.

This thread is a good idea. I'll just sit here and pester you all, since that's easier than transposing pages of handwritten notes to a word file. I have poor handwriting.

JoNightshade

I'm back! I think that's all the torture I am going to impose on myself for today. :)

Since yesterday was so good and today I made another mistake of coming to AW before my day begins...

I won't come back until I write another 1000 words.

See y'all later -- don't miss me too much (just a little, okay?)...

Ava Jarvis

Need to break AW addiction...

I won't come back until I've worked my way past 5000 words that stay on the page.

This may take a while.

I'm so bad. AW is my warm-up before writing. When I open Word I reward myself with a few more minutes. Then I scroll to where I'm at in my wip. Few more minutes. This goes on for awhile until I realize half an hour has gone by and I still haven't written one thing. Then I crank out a couple pages and check AW because I'm so proud of myself. Repeat until I've reached my daily goal or decided I've written enough for today. Then I go to bed. My grandmother is in town this week and I've barely been on my computer so I'm going through serious withdrawl! I have the night off so I will be posting everywhere. Be warned.

I'll (supposedly) be writing from 6:30-8:30 so feel free to yell at me if I pop up anywhere. :)

Oh, where has the time gone? I've been on AW since....:Wha: (Um, is there an AW Anonymous group?)

I think this is it.

Well, yes. I even put it in my signature so that other AW'ers can wallop me if I succumb. On occasion, it has meant staying out for a couple of days at a time.

And then I stayed out all summer, but that is another story. A rather dull one.

I've never come to AW before reading my email. And checking some blogs.

I'm pathetic. :D

I do that on purpose - save AW for last because I know I won't leave for awhile. I just turned on Word then I'll hop in the shower (must shower 4 times a day here) and get started.

Ooh, my clock says 6:29 so I better skidaddle! Hasta ocho y media.

Ava Jarvis
10-08-2007, 09:44 PM
I did it! 5,319 words! It took a while but it was definitely a motivation. And yes, I am a 1000w a day person right now, which is where I want to be.

Ava Jarvis

I will not look at AW again until I write 5000 words that stay on the page again.

Now I know this will take a while. :)

No. I can't write now anyway. And when/where I write, I don't have internet access. :)

The David Cross and Larry the Cable Guy Celebrity Deathmatch (http://www.bobanddavid.com/2007/10/an_open_letter_to_larry_the_ca.html).

Note the last post I made to this thread was on the 9th. It is now the 15th.

5006 words! And I think I'll try to bite off smaller chunks, or make my promises near the weekends, when I have a chance of actually completing them in a timely fashion.

My last 17 words were a haiku:

Come down little words
Into my work's miasma
Or else I may cry

Which pretty much sums up that week compared to the week before!
