I've been under the weather today - one of the many bugs circulating in the UK at this time of year found its way into my winter-worn system. Swathed in a fleece throw, huddled in front of the computer screen half-asleep, I've not done much today and was feeling pretty miserable about it.
It's now evening and I went to post my word count. About to write 'No words today,' I stopped. No writing this morning but I did do a little tinkering this afternoon with the end of yesterday's scene. Finished it off, in fact. I checked yesterday's word count and today's word count. The difference?
I wrote 420 words today but was convinced I'd done nothing! :)
True, a lot of chores went undone. True I didn't do any planning for my short story.
But I have inched toward my goal, my main, all-important goal, of finishing the rewrite of Mystery in Morocco.
*fanfare of trumpets*
Sometimes I wish I could add new bits of software to my brain and delete others :)
I find it so easy to focus on what I haven't done, rather than what I've accomplished.
Did you achieve what you wanted to achieve today? And did it include your main goal?
