I have a new secret weapon and it’s called Write or Die from writeordie.com. Well, it’s not so secret for many other people, of course, but for me it’s been a godsend because I am VERY easily distracted by the web. With Write or Die, I set this baby for a 30 minute increment, set a goal of anywhere from 300 to 500 words, depending on where I’m at, and GO! I have exceeded my goals every time. The screen starts to turn red if your hands are idle too long. I can’t have that so I write and write and write and before I know it, I’m at 500 words with 18 minutes left to go or the alarm goes off at 30 minutes and I’ve written 900 words. Heavens to murgatroid! I’m a writing goddess with this tool.
I got all my words in this week. Still no beta reading, though I managed a couple of small critiques. My critique debt is massive, however, and I feel guilty about it but I feel compelled to write more than edit or beta read right now so I’ll probably stick with this until I smell the smoke of burnout.
My cumulative stats are updated on my ROW80-2 page.
Linky for the other ROW80 participants is up and ready for you to share the encouragement with my peers. Thanks for the read!
