I feel like my writing has a higher quality than last year, but I’m definitely a lot worse with regards to quantity. What keeps me going is the fact that I like my story and the general joy of writing itself. Also I’ve got writing buddies whose word count motivates me.
While last year I went for 90-minute writing sessions, putting down my daily goal in one run, I had to switch to shorter bursts of word production this time. There’s this ugly tool online that helps me write 500+ words in 15 minutes without a stop. If only I could get myself to sit down three times a day…
Anyway, I’m going to try my best.
