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!
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.
Congrats! Happy you’ve finished it.
Thank you so much!
well done – and if you can handle aggressive goals without losing it go for it I say- all the best for this week
Thanks! We’ll see how it goes. Part of me wants to take a week long break. LOL
A Happy Ending indeed! LOVE It! Nice going Claire!
You rock. Totally!
