As often as I cup my ear and listen into the wind, I cannot hear many victorious cries echoing the mantra, "1000 words today or else!"
I am getting my 1,000 words in, so I am going to brag about it a little and ask the rest of you if you have been so busy writing you haven't had time to report.
1,095 yesterday, a little more the day before, but they were rewriting words. Rewriting counts! That's what books are. Pages and pages of rewriting. Actually, the words were words written within, you know, additional words that don't go forward but expand and enrich what is already there.
My goal for today is to get twice that many. How is everybody else doing and this means you, too, Eli, you slacker. Enough of the "I have a cold (and it's your fault.)" excuse. Karen? Lisa? Everyone?
Let's re-dedicate! Let's bug Eli enough that she takes up her own challenge again. Let's be all that we can be. Let's not think of excuses why not and concentrate on why.
