Just when I’d made a decision to concentrate more on writing (and blog more about it) Debbie Ridpath Ohi came to my aid with her 1,000 words a day challenge.
Now I’ve completed Nanowrimo twice, and that’s 50,000 words in 28 days (which is getting on for twice as much) so I know I can write to a word count.
But 1,000 a day for the foreseeable future – that would be a challenge for most people and I’m no exception to that.
I made a pact with myself to take part just as soon as I found the time. But the trouble with ‘just as soon as’ is that it usually means it ain’t going to happen. Debbie posted a reminder on her blog today and I’m proud to say I’ve turned never into now by writing a 1,000 word short story. But will I be able to keep it up tomorrow and the day after and the day after that?
I’ll let you know.
