Or would that be sticking to your goals in this case? For those of you participating in Nanowrimo, more power to you! 50,000 words is an incredible goal and whoever accomplishes that is a marathon writer. I chose not to participate, instead trying to keep to my goal of five pages per day.
Those five pages sometimes feel like they will be the death of me...but on the nights that I slip into the groove of my story and more than ten pages happen to pour out, it makes up for the less than prolific times. Our lives are filled with distractions (Darn you, Ghost Whisperer! Your provocative story lines and Jennifer Love Hewitt's impeccable fashion sense tempt me from my goals nightly! Why must you be syndicated on several cable channels so your awesomeness can be viewed from 6-10???) but we must persevere.
No one stands in the way of our dreams but us. Write on, people!!
