The goal today is to get 3000 words on WFH1 without thinking about the fact that the Onyx proposal is with the publisher right now, with the better part of this year’s finances hanging in the balance.
I consider this something of a test of spirit — focus through adversity, ignoring the blue elephant, dedication to craft over gain.
Plus remembering how screwed up my deadlines are already, and acknowledging that if I get a deal, there will be another deadline or two to work into the queue.
If you have a prayer or a lit candle or good thoughts to send my way, I would be grateful.
Starting point: 11,964 words. Goal: 14,964 words or better.
