October 8, 2012 - Total to date 24,985 words
I was pretty well keeping up to my daily goal of 2,000 words per day, and then - low and behold – I was sabotaged by a holiday, which, in my ultra dumbness, I hadn't taken into consideration. Our Canadian Thanksgiving is supposed to be today (Monday October 8th), but my family had to come home on the weekend. So what's a mom going to do?
Ignore her son and keep up her word count, or…??
I, naturally, chose…or!
I mean keeping up with my schedule is important to me. When I set a goal, I do it with all intentions of succeeding. So, this little bleep will have to be rectified. Sure that sounds pretty cheeky doesn't it? Well the truth is - if I want to finish the book by the deadline of October 15th, and there are only so many days left, I quite simply have to divide the word count that I'm aiming for by those days. In the beginning, my brilliant deduction –ahem –told me that if I wrote 2,000 words a day, it would get done. Finished! Success!
So…now I have to make up for two days and that's – let me see…Yep! - 4,000 words.
With 7 days left, I need to write approximately 20,000 words uhhh…divided by 7…..ummm …holy shut the door…2,700plus words a day. Right!
Gottta go now and if you don't hear from me for a few days, you'll know why.
Wish me luck!!!
…Now what the heck did I do with that bottle of eye drops??
