I’ve set myself a ridiculously easy daily writing goal. I’m a little ashamed to admit what it is: 100 words. Yes, I know. I’m a breastfeeding mum; give me a break.

But it’s working. I can do 100 words even on a really busy day. I can squeeze it in somehow. And I’ve thrashed that goal almost every day this week. When I finish one thought I wanted to get down and see I’ve reached 180 words it’s only 20 more to 200. Perhaps the next thought takes me to 240. Oh, another easy ten words. But now 300 is within reach.

Perhaps next week I’ll make it to 500. But that’s not a goal; it’s just five easy bursts of 100 words.
