Week 10 -- Speed Bump
If you're wondering what The Impossible Goal is, you can read about it here.
Monday and Tuesday my CART job lasted all day, and while I write pretty darn short, my hands were done at quitting time. I did not practice those days, and boy, Wednesday I could tell. I'm glad I DIDN'T practice, mind you, because we got to take care of our hands. But yes, I slid back a bit on speed. Now back to my regular practice schedule. Ten minutes during the day, ten minutes before supper, and ten minutes before bed -- AT LEAST. Maintaining estimated practice speeds of 350 testimony (which is feeling fast, but not crazy fast) and 300 literary (which is feeling crazy fast).
Don't know if I already posted this or not, but phrases ending in "thing" like "kinds of things," "this thing," etc. are popping up in my writing.
Received the BackJoy (see previous post's comments--thanks, adm) on Friday and am sitting on it as we speak. I can indeed tell an improvement in sitting comfort.
Other'n that, not much else to report. National and State speed contests are coming soon.
