1:23 and I haven’t written a real word yet. Not off to a good September start! But I’m setting a goal right now and making it official: 1000 words before I go to bed tonight, with at least three writing sprints of either 20/10s or 45/15s. (The latter being better, of course, but I’m not going to ask for miracles from myself.)

And just because beating myself up is not a good mental health strategy, I’m going to remind myself that I invested some hours in learning more about ebook formatting this morning, swam and played with the dogs, ate two super-healthy meals, and started a load of laundry. I am being productive and now I’m going to go off and be more productive. 1000 words. I will do it.
