It is day four of this month long challenge in writing, the goal is at least 1700 words a day to get to the 50,000 word count and so far so good. This time my motto is going to be slow and steady wins the race and I am not going to let myself be distracted by other thoughts, all that I am planning to do this month is to write every day and that is it. I do have a bad habit of talking myself out of trying things because fear of failure weighs heavily within me, I wonder if my hesitancy in completing my book resides in the fact that after I finish, the next step is to ship it out. I have written about this before, I am hoping that the more that I admit that I am my own worst critic and enemy that eventually I will exorcise this horrible failing within myself.

Which is why this time around I refuse to indulge in this type of negative thinking. Slow and steady wins the race and I will be writing each and every day, no matter what and it will get done. End of story.
