Getting off track


Really freaked myself out tonight by adding up all the words I’ve written for the first draft of my book and calculating how close I am to my goal of 45,000 words. 

I’m 28% there. Not close at all. My deadline is January 31st. UH OH. THAT’S NOT GOOD. 

You know what went wrong? I stopped being consistent. I was writing every night until suddenly I wasn’t. That first night I skipped it and went to bed just opened up the flood gates. Giving up once is a gateway drug to giving up all together. It’s so much easier after that first time.

Getting back on track is going to be so painful. I hate this. Why’d I let myself break the chain?!
