Exploring New Paths Toward Success – Daily Quote

The path I am following has become a well-worn rut. My intuition is telling me, I need to up the ante. What was once difficult to compete, has now become a no-brainer. Over the last several months, I have taken my word count from an average of a hundred words to five hundred. That gives me about thirty-six hundred words per week. The start of a new month is a great reason to set a fresh intention.

Tomorrow, I am increasing my daily target. For seven days, I will shoot to write fifteen hundred words every day, or ten thousand words. It sounds like a lot. I am pushing myself for a few reasons. First, I have projects I want to move towards the finish line. My dream is to complete two short stories. Second, I am using it as a warmup exercise for NaNoWriMo. In November the goal is fifty thousand words for the month.

The most important incentive for completing the challenge is to boost my overall productivity. I love finding creative ways to drive myself to a higher level, and I make it a priority. Its time cuts a new route and venture into the unknown.

What challenges are you setting for yourself?

  1. I was just going to ask you if you were going to do the NaNoWriMo challenge. Have you done it before? From what I read, you sign up for the challenge, but it is not like you are uploading your document, you are mainly connecting with other people that are also trying to write 50K in the month. Although, don’t they evaluate stories at the end, and they choose a winning story?
