Grapemo 2012 DAY 23

Counting today, there are 6 more days left of Grapemo. That's almost a week. Encouraging, right??

YES!

Some of us have had good days, others pretty lousy days, and a few of us have managed to plug steadily along. There is NO SUCH THING as bombing out of Grapemo. If you've have to change your PWG (and I certainly did; I have a pile of copyedits staring me in the face right now) do NOT look at it as a failure at all. In fact, it's a victory: you've figured out your goal may have been a bit unrealistic, or everyday life threw up a road block, and took still took steps to ensure some kind of progress. Even getting one paragraph down when you'd hoped to write ten or more pages is still much better than writing nothing at all.

DON'T GIVE UP! We're reaching the home stretch!

This is something I really needed to read today. I've been feeling really dejected about my writing lately, especially now, having realized the measly forty words I spent all day writing yesterday needed to be deleted. It can be easy to forget that any progress, no matter how small, is still good progress.

And...whoa. Only six days left of Grapemo?! Where did the time go?!?!

I doesn't feel like progress, but I guess it is. :)

We must talk! Maybe this weekend??

Any writing you are doing is more than what I'm doing since I'm not doing any at all. :)

Though I am going to be in my very first art show in a gallery next week!

Tomorrow we're gone all day and have a dinner party that night. Sunday I might be around. I'll ping you.

Thanks for the hurrahs! I've been feeling pretty lousy about it--how could you tell?

Hope you're doing well in your own goal!
