Writing in Public: Days 5-6

Day 5 went well! Almost got to 1k. I had the day off work but went into my office in the afternoon to focus. Took my leisurely time editing and expanding prior words, and then did three 20 min sprints. Average per hour rates were 1065, 984, and 1290. This is about double what I’ve been able to accomplish with sprints since I started using them in May. Very pleased.

Today (Day 6) seemed like it would be a wash. Dentist appointment in the morning, then kids wanted me all day. Hubby took the kids out on their bikes for awhile to give me some time, which I’m grateful for, but I mostly just pecked away at the words I wrote yesterday, ending up with an extra 27 in the end, and paid some bills. The rest of my writing happened after the kids were in bed. Did about 150 words, then watched way too many compilations of “The Voice” on YouTube, then did the final push. I really need to disable internet…

Overall, still more words that I would normally write, so I’m happy(ish). Plus I broke 40k! Next happy dance isn’t until 50k.
