Marathon, Sprint, One Step

February 6, 2014 at 8:03 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

Yes, I know–I missed yesterday. Three nights of poor sleep will do that to you. Speaking of which…

Writing is a marathon, I think we’ve all heard that and I believe it. Granted, not everybody’s marathon is the same length, but for the most part, it’s a marathon. Sometimes you can sprint. I did that Monday with my 3K words. (I think my record for one day is 9K, but for me, those are few and far between.) Then there are days you take one step. That was yesterday.

I wrote one page in my page-a-day project and that was it, but that’s okay. It was one step, and one step forward is my minimum goal for any day. Could be a sentence, could be a paragraph, could be a page–it’s a black-and-white issue to me and a win for one sentence is a win for 9K words.

My goal for today is any writing, 1K at the least, I hope. I think I can do that. So, time to write.

P.S. On Tuesday I did write 1380 or so, so let’s round up to 1400 words. Better than nothing, so the day was a win.
