Welcome to Wednesday! I'm impressed and heartened that we're still here, working together, pushing forward despite the obstacles. Hooray for us!
Last month, while working under a challenging deadline, I had a day where I felt like I just couldn't push through. DH knew I was struggling and emailed me this:
It made me laugh and actually got me working again. I finished the project March 1st, the same day I arrived home after six weeks away. The same day March Madness began. Knowing I had a lot of catching up to do, I set what I thought was a reasonable, attainable writing goal for the month.
March Madness is truly living up to its name. I'm fighting like mad to get back into a peaceful writing routine, but life keeps spinning me around in crazy circles. Yesterday I wrote in the car on the way to Seattle. Today I'll write in the car on the way back home. And don't worry, I'm not the driver!
Determination and discipline have kept me going this month despite sickness, exhaustion, and the million other things that have demanded my attention. I'm thrilled that I've been able to write 500 words each day. It may not seem like much, but it translates into 10,000 words for the month, which is my March Madness goal. Thanks, all of you, for keeping me motivated! Don't forget to check in over at Shari's blog tomorrow: http://sharigreen.wordpress.com/blog
So what's your bottle of glue? What keeps you writing through the tough times?
