Because ’tis the season for goals n things.
I think—we’ll see if it lasts more than one month—I might try a new writing goal for every month. To keep me focused. And having a short, discrete goal sounds much less hard than “Finish Novel by June.”
So I think for January my goal is: write 600 words/day in BY.
600 is a small enough number that I could actually accomplish it. But it’s enough words that I could perhaps finish the draft by the end of the month, which then leaves me mountains of time to complete the rest of my BY-related goal.
So here we go. New goal. New plan. I can do this. Rawr.
For the newly-initiated, BY is my codename for the manuscript that is eating my soul.
