Weekly Check-in time

I know some of you are already finished and others are still trying to pin down a plot idea (*waves*) but you're all welcome here. :D

How's it going?

If the answer's not well, take a few calming breaths. This is all supposed to be fun, right? Right!

What's 15,000 words anyway? A mere 150 drabbles.

Hey, you still have 125 days so that's only 120 words a day even if you haven't written a single word yet.

All right, so you're supposed to have a 10,000 word rough draft by July 1 -- well, that's still under 244 words a day if you start now and think how you'll be able to cruise along between then and the final draft deadline.

We all know it doesn't quite work that way but it is doable. Yes, it is.

******************************

As an aid to making the most of smaller blocks of time, I'd like to recommend a useful tool.

Focus Booster is a lovely little free shareware pomodoro timer that can help you learn to make the most of the time you actually have available.

While there are a lot of versions of pomodoro timers available, I particularly like this one for having easily adjustable work and rest intervals and for how it sits in the corner of your document as you type your fingers to the bone. :D
