One Month of Work = 256 Pages

by - December 31, 2014

It was just over one month ago that I closed my computer and breathed a massive sigh of relief having met my goal of 50,000+ words in 30 days.

I had great intentions towards keeping the momentum going but I honestly needed a break.  I had to step back, take a breather, and allow myself to enjoy everything the Christmas season had to offer.

Now, thirty one days later, on the cusp of a brand new year, I am ready to reopen that document and get to work.

Yesterday, I printed it off for the first time and as I stood there, watching page after page spill from the printer, I felt a great rush of excitement wash over me.

I am ready.  2015 is going to be a year of accomplishment!

The story is not quite complete but with dedication and focus I'm hoping to have a real first draft by March - fingers crossed!

But for now it feels great just to have this thick stack of 256 pages before me.  It's much different than staring at words on a screen.  It's somehow more real - tangible proof of hard work and fresh motivation for strict dedication to the end goal.

Wish me luck!
