That’s a goal I’m going to live by in coming months. Life is full to brimming over, and J.R. needs some play time this summer, too! But the reason I write is because I LOVE IT. So I will keep on churning out the words, and no doubt keep surprising myself. I’m just laying off the pressure a bit, to take more joy in the process.
So…that means I’m taking back a previously stated goal of 1,000 words a day to finish the draft of the second Foulweather Twins book in June. Instead, I’m back to my stand by 500 words a day, a level that doesn’t leave me stressed and grumpy. 🙂
I’ll still be publishing Flight (Children of the Sidhe, Novella 3) as soon as it’s ready — most likely by the end of the month. And I’ll edit Descent (Children of the Sidhe, Novella 4) as I find the time, hoping for an early fall release.
Now for a little update on my progress this week:
Sunday – 700 words
Monday (took a vacation day!) – 900 words
Tuesday – 200 words
ROWers, I’ve taken part in this writing community since the third round of 2011. Two full years. In recent days, when I hit something of a breaking point and realized I was asking too much of me, I considered skipping the summer round this year. I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll post at all on writing progress (barring major stuff) during the summer. I’ll be pondering that decision over the next couple of weeks. No matter what I decide, it’s not like I’ll completely disappear. I’ll likely pop in and haunt your blogs more if I’m not under the gun myself for a couple months. 🙂
