I told myself I would start trying to write everyday in February, since January is always a crazy time for me every year and I knew I wouldn't have the find the time. I'm doing the 750Words challenge for this month just give myself a good start, since my goal this year is to write at least 100,000 words of fic (original and fanfiction). This is roughly about 300 words a day, which means I'm already behind because I only wrote 3,600 words in January. We'll see how it goes. The plan is to post every day here and log my word counts so I don't forget.

This year: 4,425
4425 / 100000, YTD word count

It's funny that today on [community profile] onedeadplotbunny someone mentioned Shitty First Drafts from Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, because I'm now in the process of writing the shittiest first draft ever of a short story that I'm hoping to complete and polish in time to submit as my writing sample for the graduate studies program.  I have to remind myself not to be too discouraged, though it's certainly difficult when everything is so bad.  XD  Oh well!  Words are words, and I made my word count for 750Words today as well.  

Today: 762
This year: 5,187
