So today was again one of my normal day off to do chores, spend time with the wife, the usual. With rare exception, I usually have Thursdays and Sundays off, next week being one of the few where I have both Saturday and Sunday off. Woo hoo! A two day ...

June 29, 2017 by Leave a comment

So yesterday was a complete bust and I know why. Normally, I get a 20oz bottle of soda a day when I'm at work. Due to financial obligations this month, I had to stop that practice in order to save up money to pay for something. So except for a ...

Word count 6-27-17 : Kind of a bust today, but not as bad as it could have been

June 27, 2017 by Leave a comment

So today, I somewhat failed during the time I should have been writing. I, unfortunately, fell down the parallel holes that are YouTube and Facebook. Having my allergies making me groggy didn't help either. Instead of my plan to start writing at 3 am and going until 7 am, I ...

 Just finished up my writing session and I have to say. I'm really getting excited about how well this experiment is going. Enough so that I realized I need to start tracking another metric. How long I'm actually writing for. With my ADHD, I'm still a bit haphazard when it ...

Well, my plan seems to be working. I wrote what I would consider significantly more today that I did yesterday. The words seemed to flow a lot more smoothly for me as well. Obviously, it's still way too early to tell, but it does give me a flicker of hope ...

So I’m trying something new that I hope will help increase my writing output…

June 21, 2017 by Leave a comment

So I decided to try something new in regards to my writing. Once of the things that can have a positive effect on being able to reach goals is a process called gamification. Simply put, making a game out of something can increase the likelihood of reaching a goal because ...
