Yesterday I amazed even myself. I worked my way through not one, two, or even three modules for my online class. Nope, not even close. Are you ready? I finished nine of those units. It was as if time stood still. I watched videos, read lessons, took notes, and completed the corresponding exercises. My hand became sore from writing pages and pages of notations, and when I counted, I had filled 12 sheets of my steno notebook with important information. The cramps started in my hand, radiated up my arm, and squeezed the muscles in my shoulder and neck into hard knots. Don’t let anyone tell you writers don’t suffer for their craft.
The concentrated effort required to accomplish the massive push forward on my class schedule meant I did nothing else after fulfilling my 9 to 5 sentence. The To-Do List remained untouched. Sadly, since I fell behind on my homework, and even with all of yesterday’s progress, I am still behind, and still six modules short of reaching the halfway point and 14 short of current. Never fear because I have a plan. Don’t I always have a plan? Enter a long holiday weekend with few distractions and a burning desire to finish this class, and move on to Phase Two of my master plan.
I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 240 countable words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
