I’m always wanting to improve on my numbers, so it’s not a surprise that I’m not really happy with the possibility that I am not going to have as productive of a 2021 as I did previously. And, with the fact that we only have about six and a half weeks left to really kick it into 12th gear, that seems more likely.
However, this is a long-haul situation. I’m always looking for little victories as they come along. I try and fight entropy and procrastination all along the way. This week might have been another little victory.
Was it a perfect week, where I meet my writing quota every day and then some? No, it’s not that. But it is better than what I had the previous week, if you compare the numbers. So, there is that.
Anyway, last week’s numbers are below. Maybe with the Thanksgiving break, I can get a good amount of writing in before I’m done… and a little bit of research into my self-publishing items. (Fun fact – I hit up ex-New York Times columnist and current Oregon governor candidate Nicholas Kristof on Facebook about the Substack platform and what sort of success he’s been having with it. Fun times.)
