Wouldn’t it be great if – like in a lot of video games these days – every time you reached a major goal in your life a little “achievement unlocked” button would pop up in your vision? Well, assuming they didn’t pop up while you were driving. Even better for writing goals. It would be that much more motivating.
Unfortunately, that’s not (yet) the case. So I’ll just have to make my own for hitting 50k on my draft zero for my current work in progress.
…granted, it’s only draft zero and I still have 40k to go and oh man, is it going to need a thorough rewrite and then a proper edit, plus some fermentation time, and maybe a shake and a dash of salt –
But I’m not going to think about that right now.
