Embrace The Suck
The leader initiated a couple of "sprints", where we competed to write as many words as we could in five minutes. That got me a couple hundred words each "sprint", and I totaled 1,000 words while at the Write In. One really cool thing I notice about being under pressure is the reduced time I have to question what comes next in my story. When put under the gun, I'm amazed at how my fingers tap away and the story moves forward at a pace I never knew possible.
I'm still playing catch-up with my word count (still close to a day behind), but I'm not discouraged. I'll just keep tapping away...no looking back...ever Embracing The Suck.
