First off, I just wanted to point out how it’s kind of ironic, and amusing, that the rest of the world (or at least the US) is going, “Oh! School’s almost out, I’m so busy!” and yet this month, I’ve written more blog posts than I have in…a very long time. Huh.
Anyway, back to relevancy. (I love that word…and all variations of it.) I made forty thousand words today! I’m very excited about it. I made 40k! (Excuse me while I go flail and grin like a madman. One without a box, sadly.)
On a different note, I’ve also started writing at a more regular time. Once upon a time, when I first started writing, I did it first thing in the morning. Right after I woke up. It was surprisingly productive to get so much done when I still feel half-asleep. Lately, though, I haven’t done that, and so I just write whenever I find time.
The past three…or was it four?…days, I’ve woken up at roughly six in the morning, and I decided to take advantage of it by getting up and writing. That first day, it was really hard, because all I wanted to do was sit and be lazy in my warm bed, but by today, it was actually really easy to get up out of bed. All I had to do was remind myself how much more productive it is when I do it.
Plus, at six in the morning, the baby is still asleep, so it’s nice and quiet. Yay! I don’t get much quiet in my house, with an almost two year old and several other siblings, so I like it when I get it.
Anyway. This post is starting to sound ramble-y, so I think I’ll stop it here.
