Three days of success!

My first three days of the ROW80 challenge have been successful! I reached my goal of 1,000 words every day, mostly by waking up at 5 am to write before the kids wake. I’ve made excellent progress on my novel. At the beginning of the week, I was stuck in Act I, scene 2; now I’m sailing into scene 4 and excited to press into scene 5 before the week’s end.

Even though I’ve only been participating in ROW80 for 3 days, it’s really propelled my writing forward. And it makes me so happy to be writing so much. There’s just something supremely satisfying about writing.

Monday 10/10: 1041 words by 902 pm. Contrary to my usual belief (that my brain just can’t focus enough in the evenings to write), I managed to write just fine.
Tuesday 10/11: 1128 words by 7:20 am.
Wednesday 10/12: 1012 by 7:28 am.

    Great job meeting your goals!! I always feel so much better when I get some writing in first thing in the morning.

  2. Wow, you wake up at 5am! I’m jealous lol
    I think sleep is a waste of time, but, man, I love my soft, warm bed lol
    And welcome to ROW80! Just added you on Twitter 😉

  3. Awesome. Good idea getting up before everyone else. I did that for a while. May do so again when November hits. Hopefully the time change won’t wreck that idea this year.

    Amazing, the things our Infernal Editors convince us of so we can’t write, innit? 😉

    So much progress in so little time–well done!

    Wow. I am impressed. I don’t get up before everyone, I stay up later than everyone to write — but I have a feeling the a.m. would be better for writing…but you seem to be doing good at either end.
