I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately, and by writing I mean editing. It’s Camp NaNoWriMo, and I set a goal of editing 31 hours (1 hour a day). Of course, me being me, I can’t make myself do anything consistently, so it’s been more like: edit 30 minutes here, edit 3 hours there, etc. And, of course, me being me, I’m behind. Le sigh.
However, I’m only a couple of hours behind. I’ve found that setting a much smaller goal has been very beneficial. I feel like I can actually do it! I’m going to win Camp this year for the first time ever! I’ve also been writing every. single. day. That’s unheard of for me! I am a by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of person, despite my best efforts to be organized and diligent.
So, what’s changed? Well, not to sound like an affiliate or anything because I’m not, but I found this write chain challenge over on Writerology, and it’s basically changed my whole life. Now, I’m only 19 days into my challenge. Some people have 999 links in their chain! I’m sitting at 19 links going, that is never going to be me, but who knows! Maybe it will be.
I’ll leave you today, with a thought from Mr. Hemingway…
Interesting notion, Mr. Hemingway.
