I-want-to-write is writing the doctorate.
So, chapter 1 is due tomorrow. (I somehow managed to write chapter 2&4, so this is not my first time)
The target is 10,000 words.
So far have 3000 words, 2000 of which I wrote yesterday on a train using the pomodoro technique and focus booster. It took 4 session for every 1000 words, which hopefully means I will not miss the deadline.
Today I had a realxing morning seeing friends and enjoying my son, whom I have not really see much of this week due to the amount of reading I had to do.
Still, now I need to start writing. The plan for today is for three 4x25 pomodoro chunks with breaks in between, so six hours of work. I might have to cook dinner and spent some quality time with my mother in the meantime.
It is 2.30pm and time to start in earnest. Wish me luck :), I will update after the end of each 4x25 session.
D-day work tally - I thought I could update by editing this entry as opposed to adding endless replies to my own post.
2.30pm 6x25, some distractions, 1350 words. Total is now 7350, 2650 to go.
This site is helping a lot, I never managed to work this much before. Feeling very grateful and almost optimistic I will get it done.
3pm break over, time to work again. I will only have time until 5pm, but will be back after 6pm again.
6pm after 3x25 session, total is now 7850, 2150 to write. I am completely guilt-ridden as I had to miss a family party because of my procrastination and disappointed so many poeple. Had a few distractions, but now have to start work again. Feeling sad and despondent.
8.20pm 4x25 sessions, total 9050, only 950 words to write. The guilt has dissipated somewhat and I am pleased with my progress, but I wish I was more disciplined, since my breaks are too long.
