It's check-in day for JuNoWriMo. And I have to say I've had a great week keeping up with the challenge. I wasn't sure at first, but now that I'm in up to my chin, I'm okay with the deep end--even with all the craziness of life making waves.
So, how did I stay on track?
I got up earlier every day (as in 4:45 a.m. oh-my-God it's early!). And surprise, surprise. . .it worked. Why? Well, I discovered combining the following makes for a pretty good receipe.
One. . .a still, quiet house.
Two. . .no pitter-pattering of little feet.
Three. . .a dog who lies under my desk and keeps my feet warm (even though he gives me a dirty look when the alarm goes off. Now, if that isn't true love, nothing is).
Four. . .man, there just isn't anything else to do that freakin' early, so might as well stick with the program.
And five?. . .my muse is a morning person. Who knew, right?
Okay, enough with the blah-blah-blahing. Let's get down to it.
My goal is 1000 words a day. Every day. And I came in at. . .drum roll, please. . .
8047 words. Hoorah! Gold star for me (and some celebratory chocolate. . .naturally).
So, how was your week? Did you get what you wanted accomplished?
