Hopefully, My Head is Screwed on Now

So, pirateguillermo and I had at talk about my trying to get some writing done and how that's impacting our lives. I never understand why I can write like the dickens in Novermber, but at no other time of the year. The dear genius pointed out that in November, I have a solid goal. I tell myself that I am going to write X words, and when I'm done with that, I walk away and focus on other things. When I don't have that solidly defined goal, I don't know when I'm done and I can't properly turn off the concentration for the day.

So, from now until I'm done, it's 2k words a day. Starting today. 2070 for today. I can be done now.
