Discipline

Yesterday Cherie Priest linked her blog onto G+. This post in particular.

And I thought wow, I’m not doing too bad.

Cherie mentioned her word count at a total of 48k for 2011 (Later the same day she announced she passed the 50K mark).

The last time I updated my word meter I was at 58K. As of today, I am at 69K and will be surpassing the 70K mark by the time I finish my writing for today.

Obviously the only comparison I can make here is straight numbers. She probably has time set aside for editing and other writing related business to take care of. She is much farther along in her career. She has a career.

Discipline has kept me on the path. Continuously going back to my writing day after day, in spite of the day job, no matter how tired I am after playing with the kids. Or those days where I’m only motivated to kick back with some Dragon Age. I keep working at it and I am making progress, even if it doesn’t seem that way.

Keep writing.
