Writing log #1 1700wrds/ 19:30-22:30 / 180 minutes

Made a pact with myself to write every day for 30 days and finish a
certain word count by the end of it. Using a technique I found in the
work of psychiatrist Albert Ellis, I’ve written a check for $500 to the
NRA. If I don’t complete the set number of words I will have to mail
the check on March 1st 2005. Since I probably won’t even have that much
in checking at the time, I’ll also get a $25 overdraft fee, and be in
the hole all month. Talk about incentive. Think of it: even Moses wants
me to fail!
Today’s total: 1700 words.
Thoughts of encouragement are always welcome. Stop me before I fund the NRA!
Stay tuned, this could get embarrassing.
