The Big Push

You can do it!

Ever get really, really behind on something?

Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you can sit down and do a big push to get almost all of it done at once. I was behind 1,218 words yesterday, so that was an extra amount in addition to the daily 1,667 for today. I didn’t think I had any chance of getting anywhere near where I needed to be. I was about to give up and just cheat again this year.

But I’m now only 302 words behind now, a number small enough that it can easily be incorporated into tomorrow’s work or a few days’ worth. I don’t know. One day at a time, guys.

I know it can be really discouraging. But you’ve come a long way so far. Don’t give up just yet. Just see if you can get caught up. You don’t have to do it all at once, as the title of this post implies. But maybe you can. Just do your best. See how far you can get. The whole point of this month is to write. You can’t just quit because you’re behind an arbitrary amount of words.

You are a writer. Now go write.
