New Month, New Goals
For the first time in a few years, I'm not working on a NaNo project, and it's bittersweet. Bitter because I love NaNo, the camraderie, the crazyness, the forums over at NaNo, the local write-ins.
But it's sweet because I'm working on an established project, and I'm on a deadline.
Last month I set a goal of writing 50K words in October. I finished a novella and started this new WIP. I reached the 25K word mark on the new WIP and finished the month with 45,000 words, 5K shy of my October goal.
For November, I want to write 55K words and finish the first writing of my WIP. I'm going to have to hustle, and it will mean taking some Saturdays at the library or somewhere so I can concentrate.
November is also the start of my son's basketball season for the Defenders JV Basketball team. Two practices a week and games. I'll be hauling my laptop to the church where he practices and finding a quiet corner to work. Hopefully, I will be able to meet this goal and get right into the rewrites by the first of December.
What are your November goals?
