Since work is about to crank back up I need to make sure I set a daily word count goal for myself so I am not tempted to push writing to the side. I decided it was best to start small and then work my way up to a higher amount. So for now I am aiming for 300 words a day. This may seem small, but I don't see the point in setting my goal at an amount I will never reach amidst the lesson planning, paper grading, and other real life tasks that take up my time. I am happy to say that today I hit my goal.
