I’m really happy to have progress to report in the middle of the week! I still didn’t write on Monday — I was under the weather and just not in the mood. LOL. But on Tuesday I wrote 1,800 words, so I’ve still managed to keep up with my cumulative goal.
I’ve written the first 4,400 words of this book in the last eight days, and that feels pretty good. I do need to pick up the pace, because I’d like to have the entire novella written by my birthday, February 15th, so I can relax for a few days before I pick up a big — BIG — editing project for the last part of Round 1. So I have five weeks to write another 26,000 words or so…that’s just less than 750 words per day, or 5,200 per week. That’s a lot of words, knowing that there are at least two days a week when it’s really hard to fit writing in. But this is a challenge! It isn’t supposed to be a cake walk! I’m gonna go for it.
New goal: test mile of 750 words per day, cumulative goal of 5,200 words per week for the next five weeks or until this book is finished. That feels good, and that’s when you know it’s right! I’m going to have to be strict with myself about not going online until I’ve gotten words on the page.
How’s everyone else doing? Have any of you adjusted your goals yet?
