“Just sit there and try to look busy”

“Stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite.” – Paul Gauguin

After six days of NaNoWriMo, I have finally fallen a little behind and I hope to spend tomorrow catching up and getting ahead (because if I don’t get ahead, I’ll only fall further behind once the work week starts again). Even if I don’t get 50,000 words in 30 days, this has at least given me the motivation to work more on my current project which is half the battle (it has also given me something to do when work gets a little slow and for that I will be forever grateful). So with an extra hour given to us, courtesy of daylight savings time, I hope to write an extra thousand words, to be more productive instead of only giving the appearance of it (or maybe I’ll just catch up on sleep, it’s still a bit of a toss up).

NaNoWriMo word count thus far: 8,474 (though I’m supposed to be around 10,000)
