Entering day six of my personal 500-word-a-day challenge, I’ve managed to hit my goals each day. Yesterday was my highest total so far, at 647 words. Granted, it’s not a huge word count, but again, my goal here is to make sure I’m writing fiction every day. I actually wore well over 2000 words yesterday, but that included a few blog posts, which I am not counting.
One interesting thing I have already learned is that it helps to have a few projects going on at the same time. I hit a rough patch with the short story I’ve been working on, but rather than remain stuck, I just switch over to my webcomic Mo Stache, and busted out some new pages yesterday. I have a number of projects I could be working on, and while I want to finish that short story for sure this month, I’m not letting that get in the way of writing every day.
