My goal for the summer isn’t very high, because I’ve been feeling more burned out than I like. Being an indie author is a marathon and not a sprint, and I need to live that philosophy, not just talk it. So, I have a goal of 2,000 words of new fiction each week. That assumes at least four days writing at 500 words a day. Totally achievable without adding stress. I write that much just to blow off steam…
…As evidenced by my word count this week. Almost 4,000 words of new fiction, in total.
Monday – 550
Thursday – 2,100
Saturday – 1,200
I worked on two projects this week, getting back into the writing groove on my novel in progress, Chaos Calling, and adding to a fairy tale side project. I’ll make sure to get in 2,000 fresh words at least on Chaos Calling in the coming week. I’m getting eager to finish that first draft.
I’m also revising a novella this summer, and I made great progress there this week, editing seven chapters instead of my goal of five.
My final goal is to read fiction every day, even if it’s just for ten minutes. I made this goal most days of the week.
Best wishes for making your goals in the coming week!
