Word Count Wednesday: 29th October 2014

Don’t worry! I may have run out of time for Sunday Scribblings, but the Wednesday Word Count is right on time.

So what did I get up to this week?

Well, I didn’t write as much as I did last week.

In fact, I wrote just 2,317 words. That’s about 331 words per day.

And you know what? That’s okay.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Writing every day is hard.

A lot of people will tell you that it isn’t. You just need to pull together some discipline and it’s easy.

Just set your alarm earlier and write and everything will work out, right?

But life is not that simple.

In an ideal world, I would write 750 words per day.

But sometimes, that just doesn’t happen for one reason or another.

I have a lot of university work. I’ve gone out with friends more than usual. I’ve had other things to do.

“Real life” does get in the way or writing. And that’s okay.

If you write, you’re a writer. It doesn’t matter if you do it every day or do nothing for eight days then write 8,000 words.

Some people are writing marathon runners. Some people are writing sprinters. You’ll either plod on a little bit each day or you’ll go in fits and bursts.

You need to find what works well for you. Just keep writing and eventually things will sort themselves out.

I believe in me. And I believe in you.
