end of the first full week

I'm not sure where all the time has gone. My work is moving forward, but I haven't yet made it into the full swing of things yet. The handwriting strategy I started with was satisfying on one level, but by yesterday my inner writing child wanted to see some real progress, so I went back to typing instead.

In between getting a new assignment from an editor I've been trying to get assignments from for a long time, getting a family member's medical problems resolved, helping my daughter prepare for another semester of college, and just getting over the blahs of gray skies and sinus headaches, I've steadily made JaNo progress on my story this week. So, while I can't say I've set the word count world on fire, I've kept the spark going, and that's the best news I can hope for and it keeps me motivated for next week.

Have a wonderfully productive weekend, everyone!

I think it's all about motivation, isn't it?

For some of us that may mean burning up the word count and for others it may mean unknotting a sticky plot point. The main thing is we all have our goals and are all seeing progress of some type.

Congratulations for getting as much done as you did given everything else that's going on in your life.
