I should've let you know how yesterday's schedule experiment went, but I was so tired, I didn't remember. Today my only excuse was I forgot.

The schedule went smashingly. True, I didn't stick to it 100%, but just having it there kept me on track. I actually edited throughout the day - both today and yesterday. Last night I got in the groove and whipped out 2100+ words between 8 and 10:30pm. Both days, I even exercised!

I'd forgotten how good it feels to be on track. I still have to watch out for the siren song of Crossing Jordan reruns on A&E, but all in all it's been very productive. As long as nobody tells me when the NCIS season opener is, I don't expect any bobbles ahead. At this rate, the goals will be have to be revised by mid-November. Yay!

Another NCIS fan! We love it, but are probably way behind here in the UK.

Regarding your plan to the end of the year, wow, I'm impressed. Wish I was that organised.

Oh yeah, Cathy. Big NCIS fan. Mark Harmon with a gun? Hehehe.

Thanks, Erica. If it weren't for all the wonderful other writers I've met online - like you, I'd still be approaching this like it was a hobby instead of my job. =oD

Good for you. I hope to get back in a groove myself.
