I knew going in I had an extremely slim chance of writing 20k words in 2 days. I mean, it’s kind of a ridiculous goal. But I wanted to set it to drive myself, so that I could write as much as I could over the weekend.
Essentially, what the challenge really was was to devote an entire weekend to writing. Which I did. I buckled down, stared at my computer for hours, and wrote. And also outlined. But mostly wrote.
So yes, I can’t celebrate writing 20k words in a weekend. But I can celebrate writing a solid chunk in a weekend. And that’s important too.
