300 Words

I need to up my game.

Reading  Bird By Bird,  last night, Anne Lamott says I should write at least three hundred words every day. A far cry for me.

But then I do write a post, the word count almost always surpasses seven hundred words.

If I added and divided them all, would it count if the number worked out to three hundred a day?

Oh. That’s not what she meant?


Well, I’ll say now that there will not be three hundred words here tonight. It’s late, I’m tired and I’ve been working for hours on a short story contest that needs to be submitted by the end of this week.

So I guess that counts, (ha-ha) even though nobody has seen it. Actually, it’s a gigantic revision of a previous post from a little while back.

So I’ll try to start writing more regularly, as close to every day as possible.

As soon as I get the contest entry finished.
