Remember that whole 'I'm only going to aim for getting into the 90s before the end of the month' rubbish?  I was spouting it when Humagaia was encouraging us to go for a huge push into 100 articles.

Well, I started today on 94 articles, with three half-written/abandoned ones in draft.

I've posted three today, written from scratch.  In some ways, this is great. In others it's leaving me so tempted to just post any old crap just to hit the 100 mark tonight!  LOL

I won't, of course, but does anyone else get this impatient, when they're so close to a milestone?

Just read it and yes! Spot on. <3

I do hope that I get a level up message and some pixel fireworks, when I hit 100. I would if I was on Runescape. >.>

Although I wrote about how the article score and author score worked, early in my time here, they were only due to my curiosity. I am not a fan of gaming, or at least, I do not hold much store in them, even though I argued the 'for' corner.

But, you're not on bl....y Runescape Jo.

You are on Wizzley where people are a little more sedate and a little less childish.

I get a little impatient sometimes.  Like I am two visits away from my most visited wizzle getting it's 1000th view.  I know that's not a big deal for a lot of you but it's a nice milestone for me (you know me, celebrate the little goals to keep you going towards the big ones).  I'm tempted to tweet it again just to get a little boost but I'm not going to.  :)

I do and I don't, but I definitely sympathize.  The truth is, it is a good thing that we are competitive against ourselves in this way, because it pushes us to do better, but no point in putting up articles just to have one.  Better to put up articles that accomplish some goal of making money, offering information or something.

My biggest challenge to myself is to constantly find ways to earn more money because I am always using the income from my online work to pay bills for the gallery or home to stabilize the affects of the economic mood of the day. 

Today is only the 25th.  You have lots of time to get to 100 before the end of March.  Smile  Have to admit that I lost count of how many I have added this month.

Follow Peace dear Jo, If you feel good about publishing it do so if not don't

Follow your writers instincts you have great instincts. Quality is always the most important issue and often I feel we pressure ourselves to produce which if done to quickly can take away from the quality.  

I also feel we should remind ourselves to be who we are and work individually with no expectation of keeping up with other writers.

Humagaia - I know for a fact that I'm not on Runescape now. I didn't get the ultimate level up message at 99. ;_;  :p

Brl - Let me Tweet it for you then. Link please!

Paula - I know (re articles for articles sake), hence trying to resist the temptation to do just that. The Britain's Got Talent ones are attracting a lot of traffic though! I wish they'd had more than two great moments there. :)  My greatest challenge is starting to make money. I've received so much advice, including from yourself. Time, time, time...

Katie - Peace... peace... *looks it up in a dictionary*  Oh! Yeah! I remember that from the 90s! It involved sitting for hours on top of the Black Mountains, contemplating Ice Ages and scenery. ;) Trust my instinct, I should keep remembering that, the amount of times I give the same advice to other people.  I'll go back to my own pace after 100. :D

Yes, but if you have waited along time to achieve your goals you should be able to wait just that little bit longer. This goes for anyone.
