Writing Under a Microscope: Day 5

Woke up around 8:30.  Kevin had already fed the dogs.  So I made breakfast and watched last night’s episode of MadMen on DVR.  Dithered around until 10 and had a 45 minute writing session.  I got about 1300 words.  I tried a second 45 minute writing session after 11, but Kevin came home early for lunch.  I got about 300 words in that time frame.

Started another writing session at 1pm and got 1600 words.  I was at about 3200 at that point.  Did another writing session at 2pm and got another 1600 words for a total of 4800.

I took a two hour break to cool off, nap, and watch some B5.  We had dinner and watched some Game of Thrones and I did my last 45 minute writing session of the night, reaching 2200 words.

So 7000 words for the day.  I might try to squeeze out another thousand before bed, but my Surface tablet needed a recharge after so much use today.

Some things I noticed.

I was actually anxious to get back to writing on my breaks.  That’s the first time that’s happened in a while.

I wrote more words in the evening than I did during the day.  I might try to squeeze in more evening writing sessions, but there are more distractions.

Also?  My wrists and arms hurt.
