goals and not meeting them

*sigh*

I figured I’d update my word count over on the Dreamwalkers page, just to keep track of how well I’m doing on my resolution of writing 500 words a day.  Unfortunately, this forces me to acknowledge that I’ve only written 1,679 words this year when I should be up around 6,000.  I managed to write about 1,000 words on the 5th, and a little over 500 words yesterday.  Which means I’ve only written for about 3 days out of the year thus far.

I’m going to keep trying.  A couple of things popped up this week, but honestly, they shouldn’t have stopped me from writing.

I’m considering buying Scrivener.  I tried the free trial last year and I did like it, although it had a lot more bells and whistles than I’m used to when I’m writing.  Sometimes the effort of turning on my laptop and opening a document makes me want to write longhand.  But it does have a feature where it will keep track of daily word count.

I will keep trying.  Got my Word document open now.  I can do this.
