After having an awesome day four of Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo), my writing took a slump for the next two days. I only got 49 words written on day five and 224 words on day six. Neither of these days are near my goal of writing 500 words per day on weekdays. On both of these days I was working on an upcoming conference paper. I find writing conference papers challenging (almost as much as funding applications) because it feels every sentence is just a summary of the paragraph it wants to be. I much prefer long form writing.
I still have a few hours to work so I am looking forward to reporting a better day tomorrow. Until then, keep writing.
