Day 4, 1669

Today, writing was done.

That is all.

In other news, looking back in time (to 2012 through 2014 in particular), I noticed a trend. In 2012, I made the “daily” goal for the first two days and then didn’t make the goal on day 3 (actually it was a zero). In 2013, I made the goal for the first two days and then didn’t make the goal on day 3. Then in 2014, I did something amazing and repeated that issue a third time!

So the fact that I managed to get through the first three days and meet my goals each day is quite good. To make it a fourth day in a row is even better!

I’m pretty stoked right now, for the record.

One of the things I have struggled with in my writing is devoting the time. I don’t need to devote hours every day. Putting in one hour (and maybe a few minutes) is usually enough to polish off one thirtieth of a 50,000 word book. If that is the case, putting in even fifteen minutes here and there, every single day, should be plenty to get my writing done. Getting into that good habit was one of the reasons I started doing NaNo back in 2010. It is the main reason I keep coming back each and every year. If nothing else, I get a 50,000 word book to work on for the future. I do keep hoping I’ll develop the discipline to do more however, and that is something I am working on.

So welcome to a four-day streak my friends. Here’s hoping it is much longer than that!
