Sometimes You Have to Go Short (Step To My Bones, Day Six)

9173784342_9a3690113e_z

Today was one of those days where time evaporated between my fingertips every time I turned around. I was reasonably productive, but to keep the quantity of my word count intact, that means that I have to cut a few corners in other places.

That means a short check-in here, and only one page of journaling as opposed to my goal of three. (My daily goal is to write three long-hand journal pages.) But that’s okay, because sometimes that’s all you can do.

If I beat myself up every time I had to choose between cutting something short versus doing it at all, I’d walk around black and blue. In the end, I can at least say that I did something, and that is always 10x preferable to doing nothing.

I’m approaching the end of the road for the first draft of my serial, which is pretty crazy considering I just started it on Friday. Things on the Step To My Bones draft are continuing and have taken a bit of an unexpected turn. And it’s about to get a whole lot darker, which tells me that this story could end up being novel length after all. Either way, I’m cool with it as long as I tell the story the way it needs to be told.

So on that note, I’m off to journal. :)
