This post must necessarily start with a confession: I forgot to write yesterday.
How terrible! Not yet two days in and I forget to write!
I realised this with an hour left to go, but my furious effort only got me a little over three hundred words before midnight.
What to do? I had decided to write no more and no less than 1500 words a day… Well, that plan was obviously screwed. So I just kept writing. Told myself when I hit 3,000 words overall, I’d take a break, and return to the effort for another 1500 later in; treat it like a new day.
That’s exactly what I did. And it looks like luck was on my side, because I managed to reach my target without even realising it. Day one ended with the sentence

– which I’m sure we can all agree is definitely lacking something.
Yesterday/today’s portion ended rather nicely with
Gabriel is the kind of person you can have conversations without ever having to actually open your mouth.
Much better, right?
I have a favourite sentence contender, but I’ll post that later, when I’m decided.
How’s it going for all of you lovely people? Sticking to targets?
