Sorry about yesterday, we’re currently experiencing loadshedding in South Africa, so I had no access to my website until today.
Did you get your 100 words?
I did, barely. I was so not in the mood to write, having had a sparkling wine breakfast in Kirstenbosch gardens, followed by a cidery farewell on Llandudno beach. I knew it would suck f I didn’t get my words down, (oh hai thar public failure) so I forced myself to work on just 1 scene, and managed to scrape out 174 words. So I got to give myself a star.
Yep, I totally reward myself with stars. A friend of mine has gold and silver star stickers for various goals, and sticks them on her calendar. I’m cheap, so I have a markerpen-month on my cupboard. (as you can see, I haven’t written yet today, nor have I been doing great at not spending :P)
I can’t explain why being able to reward myself with that star feels good, but it does. Do you have some kind of reward/notation system in place? How does it work for you?
