I’m not sure exactly what it means but I have filled one notebook with new content for Life With a View. As I look back on the past month or so it shows that I have averaged about 433 words a day during that time. Not the 1,000 word goal I was going for. Not even close, actually. But I don’t feel as though I have failed. Maybe I’m trying to be overly optimistic, but even meeting half my goal for that period feels like a success.
A lot has happened in the past month. Both in my life and the story. I feel like this project will be a success. I’ve learned a lot about my process during this time and I feel now is a suitable place to reevaluate my goals. Perhaps make them a bit more realistic.
In my last post, I shared my discovery of Elizabeth Gilbert’s 30 minute idea, which I have adopted with fierce determination in many aspects of my life. It has split my day into bite size components that I find easy to plan. Thirty minutes isn’t too much, but you can still accomplish a decent amount of work in that time. Each person has what works for them and 30 minutes seems to work for me for now. After all, 30 minutes is more than none.
Forward I go. I wish you well in all your creative endeavors.
Hope the day brings you joy!
