Total Word Count: 8,008
The day is coming to an end and I’m calling it quits (no, not for good!). I should be at 10,002 words today, but, as you can see, I’m falling a little short. Honestly, I don’t feel very badly about it today, as I did yesterday. I took my time today and didn’t let myself feel stressed.
I got up at 8:30 a.m. I could’ve lay in bed longer, but I would not have slept. I had a breakfast of brown rice and a PB&J sandwich (oh yes, the breakfast of royalty!). I hydrated and read for a while, giving myself time to digest. Then, I rode my bike for an hour (yes, now you see why digestion and hydration was important :)).
After riding and showering, I went to Tim Horton’s to grab a quick lunch, intending to continue on to the library. I figured I would be able to concentrate on my writing more if I were in a public place, away from the distractions of home. Well, it turns out that the library is closed on Sundays. Damn! I thought about going to a park to write in the sunshine, but it was still a bit chilly and breezy outside, so I returned home.
Sitting in my recliner in my living room, I got to work. I typed slowly but steadily for a while. I fell into a decent groove again. The words filled the pages. After some time, I went blank again. I needed a break.
Time for grocery shopping! I headed to Meijer and bought everything on my list (oh how I love lists). It took just over an hour.
I chilled a Leiney’s (Summer Shandy) and put some frozen crab rangoon in the oven. I sat down and continued writing. I paused to eat, then began again. It wasn’t long before I realized that, again, my focus just wasn’t there. I took another quick break to put away laundry.
Sitting back in my recliner, staring at my Word document, I just couldn’t think anymore. It was 8 p.m. Now I’m relaxing, not worrying too much about my daily goal. Tomorrow is another day. Have a good evening!
