Rocky Start

Goal: 5000 words a week.
Reality: 2000, week 1; 500, week 2.

Ouch.

But I did read two books on writing. Stephen King's memoir and The Art of War for Writers by James Scott Bell. I'd recommend both, but for pure enjoyment while getting hit upside the head, read King's On Writing. Painfully pleasurable. I laughed at his stories while beating myself up at how bad I am.

Ah well. For another laugh (and for a bit of task avoidance), see what Robert Brumm's "day in the life of a writer" is like. The prank call to Hugh Howey is classic.
