Why do I feel like I am behind? Wait, don’t answer that question. I know the reason. My actual writing output is lagging, and my total looks dismal compared to my plan. Yes, January and February were lackluster months, but March is a different animal.
This month, my muse whispers in my ear. Perhaps she pitied my lack of progress during those dismal months, and this is my reward for writing anyway. I am grateful for her assistance and ecstatic to play her faithful transcriptionist. So, while the sun shines, I developed a new plan. I intend to compensate for my less productive days and launch a stellar comeback story. Who doesn’t enjoy seeing the underdog win?
My muse thrives when confronted by a do-or-die scenario. When the odds appear insurmountable, when others urge her to quit and go home, she rallies to defy the nay-sayers and critics who dared to label her as beaten. Today, I’m challenging her to a duel. I have declared today as Double Down Day. The challenge is to exceed my best word count day this week by a factor of two. I can’t wait to see what happens.
Did you write yesterday? Are you writing today?
Keep on writing.
