Merit Badge: Butt in Chair, Hands on Keyboard

Butt in Chair, Hands on Keyboard

I set goals this week! This is not entirely new, but I’ve decided to be a little more realistic about how I handle them. In the past when deciding to start a daily routine, I have also place a long length of time to maintain it. An entire year, for example. Given how I focus on numbers like that, it is hard to maintain motivation if I happen to miss a day for whatever reason. One miss and the habit is broken.

So I’ve decided to take it in smaller chunks, and track myself. My goal is to write every day, with an increasing daily word count. (I’m starting fairly low to get back into the swing of things and building it up.) But as part of this, I’m going to track my counts the way I do during NaNo. Well, almost the way I do during NaNo; I won’t be posting them 🙂

The secondary goal is to find out if there’s a pattern to days that I miss. My hope is that working the possibility in from the start will help carry me over any stumbles. If there is a pattern, then next month I can take that into account when I’m setting the next goal.

Ultimately, this is a Butt in Chair, Hands on Keyboard 🙂
