The second Round of Words in 80 Days officially begins today!
What with all the insanity going on about the house, I haven’t given a great deal of thought to my goals. I know. Terrible example from your illustrious leader. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have goals! I have a big one!
I declare that I shall finish Red.
I’d expected to be mostly done at the end of Round 1, but Life Happened and…I didn’t. But as I say in my inspiration post today ,that doesn’t matter. It’s in the past. Nothing I can do to change it. I just have to move forward and make good choices today.
So okay “finish Red” is not a good measurable goal. That’s the endgame.
The goal for me is always getting into a daily writing habit. Slow and steady wins my race. I am a quarter into Red. I’ve got approximately 55,000 words to go. So I’m shooting for 750 words a day. That should put me done with a couple of weeks for revisions by the end.
There’s a strong possibility I’ll be moving during this Round, so I’m sure goals will be adjusted when we get to that point. But for now, I think I can work with this.
