Not bad, as it turns out!
The first week I shot out of the gate and surpassed my goals. That. Was. Awesome. Everyone talks about how keeping tabs on your word count goals and progress makes you accountable to yourself--in a sort of "Tsk, tsk, Self, you didn't hit your goal yesterday. Back to the grindstone, now, Self. Get crackin'." But I feel like the awesomeness of seeing yourself meet and even surpass your goals isn't talked about enough. It's a great feeling. I think I may start keeping a spreadsheet just to see those tallies, because it's inspiration enough to come back tomorrow when you reflect on how well today went.
The second week--not as great. I had my excuses. One big one. It was this little imp's first birthday party:

and that kind of took over my life for the better part of the week. Baking, cleaning, making a ridiculously froofy outfit for her to wear...
Now I'm looking at the start of week three, and it's time to get back on the writing wagon--I have a spreadsheet, darn it, and I want to see it fill up!
