Maintaining momentum

One of the things that has often kept me from making the kind of progress I would like to make -- regardless what kind of project I'm working on -- is the setting of unrealistic goals. 

Rather than burden myself with trying to make up for lost time, I will leave my daily challenge at 1,000 words, regardless what I've done or not done the day before.

The past two days have been miserable in terms of production on the current novel, fewer than 500 words total, but my goal today remains 1,000 net new words -- 6,455.  I'd better get started.
