Bravo. You actually followed your gut. [No, not to the fridge–well, not immediately.]
Instead, you raided your bookshelf.
You put down your pen and put up your feet.
It was time for a cozy dog mystery, a creativity daily devotional, and Charlotte’s Web.
You read for yourself.
You recaptured your inspiration and relished in the wordplay, the plot twists, and the comforting conclusions.
There is something to be said about not writing…
Those deadlines? Whoooosh! There they go!
And your priority juggling act continues.
Today, let’s first give self-leadership a shot.
Even if you need some help from a few friends.
Whether it’s prep for National Novel Writing Month or taking a team approach to knock off ‘Finish This Damnable Project!’ list items, order up some pizza, Cheeto’s, and wet wipes. Beverages? Keep ’em straight. You want to be able to find your keyboard, after all.
That’s the fuel for Round 1.
And the payoff for persistence?

And you will pay for it.
Three pounds later, 2000 words in arrears, you will resolve to turn it around tomorrow.
You will need twice the willpower to atone for your sins–a day of watercress/kale smoothies and 4000 words [you might as well riff on your day of decadence].
But hey, it was fun while it lasted, right?
