Writing daily


I've been trying, for the last week or two, to string together as many days of I wrote words today as possible. Today, I think, means I've written daily for two weeks (with the exception of one day when nothing quite worked right). All of this writing is for a project that has a deadline, which adds a whole different dimension to writing frequently.

I don't subscribe to the belief that you must write every day to be a writer. But sometimes it works out that way, and damned if it doesn't feel like you're a real writer when it happens. That's pretty messed-up!
