Knocked out my first 280 words of #NaNoWriMo!
In years past I’ve tried to make it about how many words per day I wrote. Every year I’d set my goal to be 500 words and every year I’d burn out and slack off and never finish. This year I’m sticking to a time goal instead.
Today’s goal was 15 minutes. This seems to be the perfect amount to time to trick myself into doing a thing. 10 minutes? Too small and easy to put off. 25 minutes? might as well make it an hour. 15 is a nice comfortable number, divisible by 3 and sturdy. 5 is a stout and burly number. I dunno fuck you. ❤
But hey, if it works, it works, right?
