I've worked on it for three consecutive days, nearly a record for me, and I'm up to 2,633 words. It's been a good time. I hope, when I'm done, that somebody likes it. But even if they don't it will have been worth it.
I'm really making an effort at focused practice. I had a long conversation with one of my co-workers the other day about the whole idea. The thing that sticks out to my mind right now is how he was saying that 99% of people will not do what it takes to learn to be great at something, like writing, or basketball, or music, or whatever. So putting in daily writing time will make all the difference. We'll see how long I can keep it up.
