For those who have been keeping track, I just started a Writer's Challenge yesterday. My goal is to hit 500 words a day. After I sat down for about an hour or two, I was able to crank out a phenomenal (to me at least) 1436 words. I was blown away. If I manage to keep up that pace for the next 30 days, I'll most likely be done with my first draft by the end of the month.
I am so jazzed about this though. When I was writing yesterday, I was just electified. The fingers were crawling over the keys without much thought at all, and somehow the story just made its way onto the page. This challenge has really been a true motivator. So keep cheering for me. I really do appreciate everyone's support and encouragement.
