Writing experiment: Week 1

Well, my first week of trying out a new type of writing is over. How'd it go?

Not too bad. Nothing outstanding, but definitely more than I've done in a long while. My first day, I only got a little over 600, but the rest of the workweek I got more than 1,000 a day. Then the weekend hit and I only did 570 on Saturday and nothing on Sunday. It was pretty much impossible to motivate myself to do anything on the weekend.

I don't think I want to go all of this week without writing anything at all, but I definitely don't think I can get up at 5 a.m. every workday without getting burnt out. SO! This is what I'm going to try this week: getting up early every other day.

Then, at the end of the week, I'll do a tally and see if my word count is any higher than just trying to write every single day.

This is just going to be a big battle of finding out how to squeeze every last ounce of productivity out of myself. I'm going to try everything I can think of -- not only do I need to get this second novel out of my system, but I've also noticed that I feel better in the morning when I have an hour to myself to write before the rest of the day starts and I'm having all the outside stresses of work, home and family kick into high gear.
