I got a comment that most of my 100 words posts are more than 100 words. Well, that’s good because the point is that I sit down to write at least 100 words and then the rest is icing on the proverbial cake.
I have the same philosophy with exercise. If I don’t feel like working out, I go anyway and promise myself I can stop after 20 minutes if I still don’t feel like working out. I have yet to stop at 20 minutes. I have yet to stop at 100 words. It’s not a constriction, it’s allowing myself to set the expectations a little lower sometimes, and knowing it’s ok to write 100 words sometimes takes the pressure off myself. Now, the daily 100 words thing has kind of slipped by the wayside because I sit at a PC all day and sometimes I just can’t bear to sit at one some more.
