ROW80-2, wk 10, rpt 2

As of the cutoff date of this report, my YA novel was at 98,900 words.  Today, I wrote “The End” at 100,500 words.  So mark my goal of completing draft 1 of one of my WIPs as ACHIEVED!!

I’ll be transferring it to Scrivener for editing and software learning purposes now.

This leaves my goals of editing my other WIP so I can get it to a new beta reader, wrapping up my beta read by transcribing and sending the author my notes, and writing 3000 new words a week on anything I like, still to be achieved.  It feels daunting but as long as I know I’m working, I’ll get done what I get done.  If I were slacking, I’d feel guilty.  All I can say now is I might have set my goals too aggressively.  That’s not a guilt-inducing realization but a lesson.

My cumulative stats are updated on my ROW80-2 page.

Linky for the other ROW80 participants is up and ready for you to share the encouragement with my peers.  Thanks for the read!

  1. Congrats on ~The End~!

    Aggressive goals aren’t a bad thing. My husband always presses me to set my goals higher and I usually get more done if I do. I tend to be neurotic about not completing goals though, so if you can do it without the guilt, good on you!

    • Thanks. My check is keeping the right balance between working hard on my writing and not neglecting other stuff like family, sleeping, bathing. LOL While I could do more, but I probably shouldn’t.
