So, 500 words per day.
Isn’t this way to many words to write in one sitting? I mean if you type as slow as I do, it might take you all day just to accomplish this. Should have paid more attention to computer class in high school. It is officially midnight as I am trying to do this. No particular subject, just trying to accomplish 500 words in this Sunday morning. Early Sunday morning, Way too early Sunday morning I should say. I should probably be in bed, yet here I am browsing for writing ideas for the blog in Pinterest and this is what I came across. Write 500 words per day. So am I suppose to put everything else on hold while I tackle this seemingly long assignment. Because I need to write, I am always writing things in that little notebook I carry with me everywhere, yet I haven’t had a good post idea in a while. Still 5 hundred words seems like a lot and I chose to write this rambling in Word to sell if it can be done and it looks like seven minutes in I have typed 195 words of nonsense.
Sorry, went to look for the calculator and did the math. That’s 27.85 words per minute. I have no idea if this is good speed or flat out super slow speed, but according to my math (and I really suck at it) it will take me approximately 17.93 minutes to accomplish this task. Again I don’t know if the math is correct but I think I can spare seventeen minutes of my very early Sunday morning. I wondered if this counts as an excuse to sleep in later.
288 words eleven minutes in. Okay I have written posts before. They usually take some very long time to put together but I have never indeed tried to time How long they actually take or how many words I actually write. But judging by the 333 in the bottom of the screen, I believe it’s more than that. 346 in 14 minutes. I think this is doable. Because I keep putting writing off for lack of time. Dealing with a 4 year old trying to get my shit together and go back to school, maybe get a job. I am fighting very hard to be independent person. So, blogging keeps getting postponed, although I write every day, in the journal or the notebook or whenever an idea hits me.
So how do I go about this?
How do I gather the strength to rise up early in the morning and be the person I know I can be and also sit down to write?
Should I trade morning YOGA for blogging?
So, 500 words per day. At 20 minutes I am at 470. So, thirty more words and I can go to bed. I think this is an attainable goal. I can restart small and maybe later on break writing into small 20 minutes shifts, I guess.
Tomorrow (actually later on today), seems like a good day to start. Just have to find my muse.
I am closing with 527 words at 12:25 a.m. Sunday morning. Eight minutes longer that expected but good enough to me.
