I reached an hour of writing on one day! That was the best feeling ever.
As you can see, I still struggled with writing every day, and with writing for a long time every day. Again, I’m disappointed that I didn’t write more, but it is more than I wrote last week. I also spent a decent amount of time doing writing preparatory work: researching publications, researching topics, and typing up what I wrote (I often handwrite first drafts). I’m still not where I’d like to be, but I am improving. It doesn’t feel like it, but I am.
It’s funny how recording what I’ve done changes how I see it. I can see patterns–all the days I didn’t write much were days I didn’t write in the morning, for instance. I can see that there has been improvement from last week, even though it doesn’t feel like it–which also means that I can see clearly that I’m not where I’d like to be yet.
Here’s to another week of improvement.
What have you been writing this week?
