Most years I have an elaborate strategy of front-loading the month so I have plenty of cushion for those days when life happens and words are the last of my possibilities.
This year I determined to just stick to the minimal 1667 words per day, every day.
And it worked for about five days. Then, you know, life.
The good news is, it's quite possible to do ginormous catching up at the end of the month, especially once the Thanksgiving meal is cooked and there are leftovers available. I recommend a token economy of a small piece of pie for every two thousand words.
Now I can get back to blog posts of more than twenty words, more than five minutes.
