Friday rolled around and I was convinced I couldn’t do it. I’d seen three movies during the week, I’d been busy at work, I went to a company cookout, I went out for dinner once with my wife, and I was beta reading the sequel to Regulation 19 (it’s wonderful, how does this guy do it?). Also, I’d just finished a major point in the story and was about to start something new, which required thinking and even a little research…and I hit my goal anyway. 7k words in 7 days, with spare change for gum if I so desired.
If you have writer’s block, I highly recommend setting goals and making them public. It seems to have worked for me. Who knows what next week will bring?
