And my brain hurts.
As I've mentioned, I'm trying to get to 80k (hopefully the end of the draft!) before my vacation on the 25th. I'm currently at 59k. I know this is more than possible for most people, but I'm a slow writer. Sometimes I can write 2,000 words, and sometimes I'm spent after 250. So sustaining a daily word count of 1,000-1,500 words is hard for me, especially because my main writing time is after 11pm and by then I just want to veg out.
NOT AN EXCUSE.
But...it's kind of an excuse for why I just can't sit and think of a good blog post right now. Besides, you know, whining :)
I was going to leave you with a snippet of the WIP to say, "See? I'm writing things!" but I feel like I've been posting a lot of writing lately. So instead I shall leave you with quotes that have to do with RUNNING as related to WRITING! (kind of. sort of. just go with it.)
“Success isn't how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.”
"A race is a work of art that people can look at and be affected in as many ways they’re capable of understanding."
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
--- Will Rogers
"Running is a mental sport...and we're all insane!"
"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that."
Do a little more each day than you think you possibly can.
Run like hell and get the agony over with.
My feeling is that any day I am too busy to run is a day that I am too busy.
Run the race, dear friends! And now that I've had a chance to catch my breath...back to the WIP.
