Okay so I missed day one… and day two. I’ll just write 3,000 words today. Does that surprise anybody though? Given my track record of laziness (especially in writing) it’s no surprise that the first proper writing challenge I give myself I end up trailing by two days, and it’s already 10pm on day three and […]
You worked? Then, you’ve managed to save. Oh, you haven’t managed to save (me neither mate. I live in Oxford and the rent kills me). That’s fine though, you worked. Sharpening skills, or realizing you’re ready to move on, or challenging yourself, or whatever work does for you.
