Making a commitment here

I'm going to write 1000 words a day come hell or high water on this novel I just started. Even on Saturday. Possibly on Sunday. Writing every day keeps me connected to the thing, whereas a day off sends me floundering and it's Wednesday before I know what I'm doing again.

Here's the deal. If I write 1000 words a day, in 30 days I will have 30,000 words. And THAT, my friends, is a novel. A messy one, yeah. But that's what re-writing's for.

I just finished my 1000 for the day. Toward the end I was crawling, snail-like, to the finish line panting for water. But yay! I did it!

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR.

It must be said. In fact,

YOU ARE A ROCK AND ROLL STAR.

It must be said twice.
