Most days so far, I haven't accomplished that. Or anywhere close.
Here's what I've done instead:
- Freelance writing (yay money, boo time lost on non-fiction writing)
- Volunteer writing and editing (yay service)
- Kids and husband (yay human connection)
- Housework and meals (usually while watching Netflix--yay inspiration)
- Facebook (yay friends)
- Shopping, dentist appointments, driving kids to school and/or visitation, etc (yay... uh... living?)
- Blogging (yay outlet)
- Squirrels! (boo. just boo)
BUT, I've been getting better each day that I've actually sat down and made myself draft. Faster.
Thursday morning I drafted almost 1000 words and then spent some time fine-tuning my outline, so future drafting days can go more smoothly.
At my normal top speed (sometimes I can go faster, but not often), I write around 1000 words in an hour. I'm thinking I need to do more 1k1hr sprints, and leave off the break I take if I only write for 30 minutes.
Anyway, to hold myself accountable, I'm going to start posting my word count each week when I blog. This'll be fun, no?
What do you do to make yourself write faster?
