so far, so good. while the plan to get up early today didn't quite work out, i have still managed to get the word count up a bit. i started a progress list on which i jot down the number of words written each day. i have to admit i do worry about my sleeping habits. while i like being up at night, productivity definitely decreases after 1.30 am at the latest. i was considerably more prolific during the weeks i went to bed around 11 pm and got up around 9 am - at least that's what i like to believe. perhaps the staying up late has to do with the street noise coming through the window during the day. at night i just have more peace and quiet.
