Being realistic...

I've done pretty good these last couple of days, the first two of Sweat70... I've felt motivated and I've achieved good wordcounts. But I'd be a stupid and delusional fool if I blithely claimed it could always be like this! I'm doing good because it's a novelty... and when that novelty wears off, that's when the test comes. If I can continue to keep up the pace... Obviously, it won't be the same pace, because other stuff comes along that must be done... and often not frivolity, and time wasting either. Stuff like commitments I've made in terms of interviews and stuff, and of course my web design work.

So, I won't always be batting along at my current searing pace... but I'm gonna push myself to keep up to my minimum pace, at least, choose whatever other stuff comes my way!

Lets face it, it's no biggie... not really... I have to write this book anyway...

And in terms of where I'm at in Gothic Heat? Currently trying to choreograph a four way argument/slanging match! Which is tough for me, as I'm usually claustrophobia-writer, intensely focused on either my hero/heroine couple, or the internal ruminations of just my main character... Managing four story people who are all shouting at each other at once is quite a reach for me!

Good for you! 70 Days of Sweat is working for me too, but I don't know if I'll be able to keep getting up so early.

Well, I might not have as much time to be able to keep up the pace when himself returns from his holidays to the WW2 and Napoleonic battlefields of Holland and Belgium.

I'll have to waste... sorry... spend time cooking stuff and talking to him!

Love the photo! You guys are all doing so well. There's going to be ups and downs, that's for sure. The important thing is keeping a steady pace.

Four-way argument? That's the kind of thing that terrifies me, lol.
