Eight days ago I decided I was going to write 500 words a day, every day. I’ll be honest: I didn’t think I’d make it a week. I did think I’d make it a few days, and that would be something.
As it stands, I actually have written 500 or more words every single day for nine days, including this one. A good number of those words have been half-formed thoughts and gobbledygook.
And that’s OK. The goal is to write 500 words, not 500 excellent words. As it stands, the gobbledygook has resulted in several publishable pieces of writing (so long as we’re able to use “put it on my blog” as the standard for “publishable”).
