On Wednesday, I wrote about using Three Strikes to keep myself moving forward to the end of my first draft. It worked. In fact, I met all my writing goals this week.
I’m not going to belabor the point too much. In a horse race, there are appropriate times to keep the horse from giving everything he’s got too soon. At the end of the race, however, the horse needs to run at top speed, holding nothing back. I feel like I’m on the last quarter and the finish line is just around the bend. Go full speed ahead, get down and dirty, and make a strong finish. That’s the plan.
How do you keep yourself moving through the first draft?
I’m on a Monday to Sunday work week, and I only post accumulated word count on Sunday evening.
*Sunday only – Word count as of today is 75,587 (as of 10/14/2012)
