It’s Word Count Wednesday again! And how much did I write this week?
4,268 words, or about 610 words per day!
More than last week! Yay!
Now let’s set aside that pesky issue of NaNoWriMo because I still haven’t written a word.
No, there was one other thing that prevented me from writing as much as I wanted to this week.
And that was altruism.
Those of you who follow my Instagram (@pennygotch) may have seen a picture I posted on Sunday of my writing pad.
And at that point, I was getting going with some writing. I thought I was going to write loads on my commute.
But that didn’t happen so much.
You see, I sat down at a table when a chair opened up so I could write. But then I noticed that the guy opposite me was struggling with a birthday present.
Well. I couldn’t let him struggle alone when I had a spare pair of hands, could I?
And that’s how I helped a man with a fabulous moustache wrap up a sewing machine. While on the high speed train between Canterbury and Stratford. Using sparkly purple paper.
And yes, we did both end up covered in glitter.
But you know what? I don’t mind.
I would rather do something nice for somebody in the real world and miss out a little in my writing.
Does that make me a bleeding heart softie? Maybe.
But I wouldn’t change that for anything. I love being me.
