That said, I also spent most of one day sick in bed and had met two deadlines the week before. I think this was necessary decompression time, so I absolutely refuse to beat myself up over it. Why? It won’t actually accomplish anything but create too much stomach acid — not a fabulous achievement in my world.
So instead I’m going to see what I can accomplish this week. I’ve already logged almost 700 words so I think I might be able to hit 1000 today.
I have the geology picture book and the astronomy picture book to work on and I want to get caught up brainstorming picture book ideas. I also have three new picture books that I want to work on. Not that a picture book draft does a whole lot in terms of word count, but that’s what I want to do this week. Will shall see what I manage to accomplish!
Hmm. I may not get a full 1000 words done today. I’m writing this Sunday evening and the sky has gone really overcast. I hate it, HATE IT, when the power blinks and I have the computer on so I may go ahead and power down. I’ll take the trash out first and see if it is really as awful out as it looks from just this one window.
