Today’s wordcount, so far: 1,372. Not bad for a little over 3 hours of writing. Not super awesome, but not bad.
Dear Self, you were productive today. You worked from home for the dayjob, did two loads of laundry, answered interview questions for those nice webzine people, mended a blazer, repaired a necklace, washed your hair, and gave yourself a manicure. YOU WERE PRODUCTIVE. HONEST.
You also were cranky and melancholy beyond BELIEF, but that will pass. It really will. And if it hasn’t by tomorrow night, you will ask the RealHusband to take you to Cupcake Royale for a GF cupcake.
This is all good advice. But I have to feed the cats and then get ready to go to a birthday party for one of my favorite three year olds, so I will follow this advice later. I swear.
Word count update! 1,303 words last night, 972 tonight. And lo, progress is finally being made! It’s the first draft, the important bit is to WRITE STUFF. Stop self-editing, Jillian. Just write.
