Well, it has been really hot recently, to say the least and doing anything at all has required real effort. I have been reading a lot this weekend which requires minimum effort and is my favourite past-time. But finally, it was time for me to write again and at last I have managed it. I am close to 3,000 words now but I will have to write 423 words a day for the rest of the month to meet my goal of 10,000 words. It didn’t seem like a terrible goal when I set it but now it seems IMPOSSIBLE 😦 I am still working till 24 July and there is so much stuff to do at the end of a school year that I just can’t imagine meeting my goal and I will be so fed up if I don’t meet it.
Anyway, the Office of Letters and Light tweeted a good post today by Holly Black who advised us to take it all one day at a time and to try not to get too bogged down by the goal and perhaps, if we’re really lucky, we’ll meet our goal anyway. I feel a bit glass half full today, as you can probably tell 🙂
