Holy crap, I think it’s working

I have been making excellent progress on this paper I’m writing. Yesterday I decided I was done with the shitty first draft, and today I have moved on to writing the second draft. I am already up to 40% of my goal word count for the month. I’m actually very excited about this, and I am finding working on this paper and seeing the word count increase very addictive. My plan now is to have a complete draft ready for my co-authors by the end of the month.

The annoying thing is, I already know that it works when I make myself spend a minimum of 30 minutes a day on a project. I know this. I know it, and I forget it ALL THE TIME. I quit doing it for whatever reason, and then it is months and months before I make myself start trying the 30-minutes-a-day thing. I don’t know why I can’t ever remember how well it works. Sometimes it’s incredibly frustrating to be this dumb!

    Listen, you can mark this down to misery loves company, which I’m not usually at all wild about, but I am happy to hear a younger highly educated person say they forget to implement effective methods. That means:

    1. It’s not just me, and
    2. It’s not because I’m old and stupid

    Nevertheless, I really hate when that happens. Glad you’ve got your mojo working again. Good luck!
