My New Year's Resolution: 100 words a day
'Cause sometimes, that's how my life rolls. And on days when I can write more, awesome. This goal has been incredibly good for me in the first few days of the year. There have already been days where I couldn't begin to write anything before 11 pm, and need to be up at 6 all bright eyed and bushy tailed for another first grade day. But even after a loooong day, I can type 100 words before crashing. It's only a few sentences, really. The best news? Even on the nights where I've gotten a super late start, my 100 word minimum has turned into 300 or 400. Just giving myself the freedom to say - You know what? I can write something today. 100 words is ok. - has prompted me to write even on those days when I would normally not even think about getting into it at 11pm.
And a super extra added bonus? Rebecca T. of Sonshine Thoughts is joining me in my 100 words a day resolution, and she made this shiny happy button to put on our blogs and keep us going!
Rebecca is awesomable for several reasons, not the least of which being that she can totally quote the movie Clue and didn't think I was a complete crazy person when I sent her a Goth NaNo Cheerleader Barbie. (Shut up, yes I did). Anyway, she and I would like to welcome anyone who would like to make your own 100 Words a Day in 2011 resolution to feel free to post the button on your blog as well.
And now, as the night is young at 9:06 and I only have about half an hour of spelling assessment scoring to do... I may get to do some research and write tonight! Woooohooooo!
