I can’t believe Saturday has come around so fast. We are officially in holiday mode (well, the kids are) and again, not a lot of writing was done this week.
I have, however, made a decision. Drumroll. Ok, so it’s not all that dramatic but every time I look at my current word count and I see 13,712 words, I get extremely motivated to keep writing. Which is a good thing – of course – but like I mentioned before; I haven’t written anything this week. And do you know why? It’s because I haven’t made it a priority. Sure, I’ve been thinking about plotting this scene and researching for that scene but it’s not been a concrete ‘I will write tonight’ decision. Which brings me back to the drumroll…..
I am going to write every night. I’ve estimated that if I do this I could have my manuscript ready by early next year. I’ve set myself a goal of March. 80k words by March 15. That’s reasonable enough isn’t it? I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself though so if I miss a couple of nights during the week I wont fall too far behind my goal.
I’m feeling rather urgent about my WIP, that I’m missing out on the inspiration that comes once I start typing. It needs to be done – so it will!
