By the time I realized my error, I'd mentally committed to the project. I know it will be challenging but it is only for 30 days, and if I manage to get to 50,000 well, that will really be something. It won't be beautiful by any means, but what I hope to achieve is what Anne Lamott would call a shitty first draft. Shitty but a draft. A done one.
So, yesterday I did all my words and this morning I did about 1000. The challenge for me will be tonight and any other night, if I have to write then. I have already warned the girls that they might be cooking supper this month... They think I'm joking.
