Thanks to the example of Crystal Cook on her blog Write Because You Must, I'm going to start setting weekly goals. They seem more manageable than monthly or quarterly goals because I tend to procrastinate. I commend all of you who manage to write 1,000 or 2,000 or 3,000+ words per day, but I'm not there yet. As much as I'd love to be able to write that much, I know that if I set my goal too high, I'll give up before I even begin. Besides, I haven't written since the March Marathon on Throwing Up Words, so any word count will be better than my current situation!
This week's goals:
- Write 500 words a day for at least 5 days on my current WIP.
- Work on revisions for chapters 9-11 on my previous manuscript.
- Finish critiquing a writing partner's manuscript before my writing group meets on Saturday.
- Submit online.
