Day Eleven - Still on target, but a hard day today

So the first of the hard days, managed the count, but it was close...

Today showed a relentless day at work and as a result I was exhausted when I got back from work around 20:30.  Didn't get any words done through the day (lunch breaks....right....) and for the first time since the challenge started, I wasn't happy with what I came up with.  Now, this will not prevent me from making count, and in terms of the number of words I need to produce to be on target for the end of the year, I'm still ahead, but I wanted to have done more today.

Still, the trick, as with all things, is if you have a slight setback, don't decide to write off the whole thing, don't get back on the horse, never get off it in the first place.  If you get bucked, fall off, or that horse is a bad tempered mare that doesn't want you on it in the first place, tighten the reins, dig the spurs in, do whatever you need to to stay on the truculent beast and ride it till it understand who's the master.

Anyway, short update today, single Chapter of The Shift, fear not, won't happen again...

This is John Dodd in the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire and Goodnight England, Wherever you are...
