This is month two of 12 months of 30-day challenges, and September’s challenge started last Saturday.
Last month I challenged myself to write 1000 words a day, no matter what.
On some days, that was really easy.
On others, not so much.
In general, I found my highest word counts to be on weekends, which makes logical sense considering I have more time to dedicate to it on weekends.
I went on a trip for work as well, and the flight days generated many words (no internet makes distractions less available, though the lady in front of me was watching Avengers Infinity War on the way there, so I kept glancing up to watch the action.) But while at my destination I had to compromise on other things in order to meet my word count.
Like going to bed later, or opting to skip a workout. (My blood sugar also played a part in skipping the workout, sooo)
I think one of the biggest things that helped was having an idea bank of things to write about. I didn’t have to struggle each day to come up with something to focus on – I could just open my idea bank, pick a topic, and open Cold Turkey Writer.
