Week 9 of 10,000 Words Destroyed by Christmas

December 29th , 2014

I gave it my best shot but in the end the holiday proved to be too much for me to work around and my epic streak of writing 10,000 words a week has come to a halt. This just goes to show that if you want to get any writing done the most important thing is to alienate all your friends and family members so that when holidays roll around your calendar remains serenely empty.

At first i was pretty bummed out. I tried to squeeze writing in around traveling and celebrating but i was never able to gain any traction. Instead of coming down super hard on myself i ultimately decided to just give myself a break. As much as i would have loved to keep the streak going, it’s just one week, and no matter how well you try to plan for stuff there will always be unplanned stuff that gets in the way. If you don’t give yourself some grace when that happens it will suck all the life right out of you.

So it’s a new week. I actually have found the brief time off writing to be refreshing. Hopefully the rest of the story will breeze right onto the page.
