Over the last few days I’ve managed to write about 5,000 words. But all those words have been a part of character building, worldbuilding and plot planning.
Even though those words aren’t directly added to my manuscript I am still proud of myself for writing them. They’ll assist in creating a more beautiful and realistic story so in the end, it’s worth it. I try not to be discouraged if I fail to do what I set out to do that day, that week or that month. So long as I get something equally productive done, that’s all that matters.
