I wrote 1500 words this morning, and I want that to be Enough. I want to live in a universe where that *is* Enough. Sadly, that will not get two books written by April 15th, which is really when they both need to be done by. Even if I wrote 1500 words Every Single Day, it wouldn’t be enough. It has to be 2500 words a day, five days a week, plus a couple weeks there where I get in 3K daily. And that doesn’t count the two proposals that need doing by April 15th, too. To get those in I really need to do 3K a day, 5 days a week.

Which really is not an insurmountable amount of writing. But *God*, I really do wish 1500 a day would do it.

Oh well. Whinging time over. Back on my head.

This is the part of being a full-time writer that some full-time writer wannabes don't understand: the books (or articles or plays, etc) do not write themselves, it's not a cushy lifestyle 24/7, and you need ample supply of what Stephen King calls "butt glue." The best part is that you're doing what you love for a living, but it's still work.

Hang in there, hon. You can do it.
