Day 4

I didn't want to write tonight. I was tired as hell, and just wanted to sleep. It had been a long, long day. But I promised, right? I had to get 500 words. So, I struggled to stay awake until I could get a moment at the computer to do my duty. (After a moment on the toilet doing my doodie). So, I started writing, and it was a struggle. I kept checking the word count every few sentences, hoping I'd crossed over 500, but no, 237...314...332.

Then, somehow, I got rolling, and now I'm quitting despite the fact that I could keep going. I made it to 780 today, the highest count so far in this young month, and on a day when I would have loved to just go to sleep instead of staying up to write. That seems like a pretty big win.
