I am not going to make it

Yesterday, I realized that there was just no way that I was going to succeed at writing 50,000 words this month. At least, not all on one project. If you count the blogs, the webpages, the miscellaneous articles, then I have been writing enough to accomplish it.

But because (true to form) I have been scattered among several projects, I am just simply not going to make it. In part, it is because I keep losing time to things outside of my control. For instance, Sunday originally was supposed to be a writing day. I ended up spending it in lodge business (meeting a new applicant) and research on a long term project. Necessary tasks.

I am going to lose this entire afternoon to necessary tasks (like how Saturday turned out), things that absolutely need to get done around the house.

Hopefully, I do better during November, the official National Novel Writing Month.

I like this presentation, a blog where we can check it and root you on. Life does happen and balance is what it is all about I am sure. Glad you are at Helium and understand your frustration. We artists need perserverance for sure. Happy writing!
