First off, I want to share a milestone I hit today. I passed the 40,000 word mark on my novel. I’ve never written this much on one project, so it’s pretty amazing for me. “Hooray, that’s awesome!” you might say. Of course, I will interject
that I still have roughly 60,000 words to go, give or take 10,000. So yeah, a way off, but feeling gooood. I also have been about matching my goal to work on the book each week which leads me to the topic of this post.
I decided to change my weekly goal to a monthly goal. I will continue to update my progress bar, it’s just a monthly thing now so I’m not resetting it every single week. Also, along with my goal of simply sitting at the computer for 2 hours a day focusing on my book, I am going to push myself to write 750 words every day so I make my deadline to finish the draft by the end of the year.
Also, instead of writing a weekly update which pressures me to write a post every Sunday, I am going to try to simply post when I have something to say. Hopefully this means I will still post at least once a week and keep me engaged with the website.
