I Can And I Will Do It!

I sit here, thinking of the words I have written this month, and the words I still have to write. So far, I’m at 33,000 words. Since I’m just one day over the half-way mark, that sounds pretty good, knowing I only have 17,000 left to write, right?

Only, knowing me, I realize that those are the easy words. Those are the words that flow out of my fingers without much prompting. My mind just automatically comes up with them and spits them out as fast as my fingers can fly over the keyboard.

For me, it’s after I reach about 40,000 that my fingers start being finicky and my mind begins wandering. Other story ideas began claiming my shorting attention span, and I really have to fight to keep pushing on.

17,000 words.

14 days.

I can do it.

I will do it.

    You can! You will!
    I am having troubles keeping with my story as well now. I reached the 50k but still have 10k left to write —- — doubting time. “It's no good, it's silly, look at all the editing that's going to need to be done” — it's the time to hang real tight and pray on! 🙂
    You're doing fantastic!

    Sounds like me. I'm at 10,665 and I have a little over 9,000 more to go. I start feeling the same way after a while, but I guess it would be much worse if I had as many words as you.
    Good luck!
