Note: This post is a little out of date, but I wanted to publish it anyway, just to keep my record of this year without holes. It will still give you an idea of where I was mentally…you know…two weeks ago
Ha! Back on track!
This week I was almost exactly on par, which means I’m still behind for July. But, I’m on track for the year, which is the most important thing.
Milwordy is a rollercoaster of emotions and this week feels like I’m climbing the big hill before the drop. I haven’t got much of this challenge left to go and it feels like if I can just stay on track through July, then I’m home free.
I had one hiccup this week that almost made me quit. I lost probably a thousand words of work. That’s right, all that talk about backing up your work earlier in this blog, and I didn’t listen to my own advice.
Mostly it’s okay. I was working on some backstory stuff anyway, so losing that work wasn’t such a big deal, except…I don’t know exactly how many words I lost. Which means I didn’t count any of them at all.
I considered just estimating the word count, but in the end, I decided that it would never stop bothering me to not know for sure that I had written all the words that I said I did. So, I just didn’t count any of them. That’s a particularly heartbreaking loss when I’m struggling so hard to get words as it is.
But I’m still here. I didn’t quit. And I’m on track. That’s all that matters right?
That’s all for this week. I hope that you’re enjoying July and that your own writing is going better than mine!
