Well, honestly I was over 700 words by about 4:20. But then I started revising THAT, and the number of words went down…and up…and down…And right now it’s at about 718 words. At this point, after 3 hours of writing, I’ve lost some energy, and need to take a break.
I’ve written a lot of lengthy documents, including a 164 page dissertation, so 700 words might seem negligible to some. But I still find things like grant statements and applications to be a real drudge, and I need to challenge myself in this way to get them done. The 7-step process works nicely. Next up: I’ll need to make final revisions on this.
