Last night I was telling my husband about all the success some indie authors are having and he asked if I was jealous. No, I wasn't jealous, because that's just mean spirited, but I did admit I was a bit envious. His response was, "Well, when those readers finish those books, they have to read something else right?"
Yea, I guess they do.
So, this only being my first few days into #ROW80 and I had every intention of completing my goals by today's check-in. I mean, how hard could it have been? My goals for this challenge were pretty simple: Write everyday during the week and spend at least 3 hours writing on Sat & Sun. I didn't set a specific word count, as long as I wrote something.
So Sunday being my first official day, I ended up being called out to work for almost five hours. I did get my three hours done, but it was a bit forced by the time I got home at 7:30pm.
Monday was a wash. I ended up getting home around 10pm after a full day of work, including teaching my night class and I was spent. So much for writing...anything.
Yesterday, I stayed home sick. And who could blame me? I'd spent the last seven days working (not including writing) without a break. My body said it wasn't getting out of bed and I listened. I didn't get much writing done, but I did spend several hours editing Heir.
Today, I'm off to a much better start, as I got in some writing time this morning and plan on doing some writing after I finish this post.
Because readers are going to need something new to read : )
