If my current WiP was actually finished at the 80,000 words I had planned for, I would have finished it this morning. But, I still have about 5 scenes left to write. So, it looks like it will be done by tomorrow or Friday. So, I will still make my end of the month deadline at least.
- Write everyday. I’m aiming for around 8000-9000 words before next Wednesday. Then, I’ll just have to split the rest between the last 2 days of the month. And of course, if I don’t meet that, nothing tragic is going to happen.
I have definitely met this goal. Thursday morning I slept in until almost 6. That’s almost unheard of for me. But, that was a day my kids actually slept in(also just about unheard of), so I was still able to get a good chunk of writing in. Then, I slept in again Monday morning, but still got a lot of writing done. My numbers for the last week: Thursday: 1603, Friday: 2045, Saturday: 873, Sunday: 1069, Monday: 2026, Tuesday: 2731, Wednesday: 1310. That makes a total of 11,657 for the week. And I;m getting so close to the end. Excited to finish writing it, but not looking forward to saying good-bye to these characters. But, that’s okay, because they’ll be back for more stories.
- Finish An Appointment with Murder
I finished this last week. Haven’t started another one yet though. I actually made it through my to-be-read list, so now I need some new books.
Only about 3 weeks left in this round, and I think I’m on track to meet just about all of my goals. How is everyone else doing?
