Last week was my first full week working on the mystery novel draft. I didn't do so hot. I found myself repeatedly distracted by other work-related things.

But I know there are no excuses, so this week will be better (I start counting new weeks on Monday for anything work-related).

I promise, promise, promise that I will do my bare minimum of 500 words today.

On a positive note, one day last week I did try the double-session I mentioned (two separate 500-word blocks during the day). It worked well. If I can get myself in the habit of doing it regularly, I think that could be a good system for me. I got more done, without feeling like I was doing more - if only I could find ways to do that in all aspects of my life. :)

Thanks for sharing!
