Blogging late night at my local Starbucks. They close at 8 pm which has to be the earliest closing time I’ve ever seen at a coffee shop. No matter–I have an hour to get my work done.
Today I’m working on a final paper due tomorrow and a short story (already working on my pre-Resolutions!). I don’t know why I get tired after 1000 words. Marathon runners know about the Wall–that moment when your body stops working and you can’t go another step. 1000 words is my Writing Wall.
I know I only have 2500 more words to go before I have a first draft of this story. I want to send it out before Christmas Craziness. Why, then, can’t I push past this wall?
I am taking a break from it to work on the final paper for an hour, and then I will return to the short story. I know I can finish it this weekend, I know I can! Perseverance!!!!
