Before I get to the goals I wanted to talk about procrastination. I’m really into the habit of not writing more than writing. The other week I put some thought into my procrastination habit. Depending on the circumstances, I’m a rebellious or perfectionist procrastinator.
It wasn’t until recently I picked up on my rebelliousness. For example, I should weed the backyard so we have more grass than weeds but I’m an adult with my own house – I’ll get to it when I get to it.
The perfectionism thing is something I’ve been slowly letting go of the past few years. I started with giving myself permission to write lousy first drafts. Sound familiar to anyone?
My goal for Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days is to write another 10,000 words on my unfinished fantasy manuscript. There are 4 days left in the challenge. That averages to 1622 words a day in order to make my goal.
Goal: 10,000 Words
Words Written: 3510 (nothing new since Tuesday)
Progress: Extremely Behind But Can Still Catch Up
But I’ve decided to revise the goal. Another way of letting go of perfection, right? I know I can write those words all in a day or two if I do nothing else. And the point of A Round of Words in 80 Days is to have a life while you reach your writing goals.
So here is my revised goal:
Goal: 5,000 Words
Words Written: 3510
Progress: Behind But Can Still Catch Up
