Weekly Goals 13-7-15

This week has to be all about writing and writing a lot.  I just hit the 40K mark on my MS which feels like a major milestone.  I also figured out where the book is going from here which is great.   I also realized I need another character which is somewhat unexpected.  Not entirely unwelcome, but not what I had planned.  But never mind. My stories often end up going places I never expected them to go and this one has certainly had a lot of surprises in it.

If I'm going to hit my 30K NaNo goal (and yes, I revised it down from 40K because I knew I'd never get there), I need to write at least 1500 words a day every day this week.  I'll be out of town on Monday, and the Film Festival opening is on Thursday.  From then my writing time will get tight because I have tickets to movies almost every night.  The nights I don't, I will have to try and write 2K to keep up.

It'll be tight, but I think I can do it.

Sleep?  Who needs sleep?

What are your goals this week?


  1. Writing and writing a lot. I kept the 50k goal at camp. So far I've been able to stay on par, but I'd really love to be able to get ahead this week.

    Happy writing!

  2. Good luck! It sounds like you are making great progress!

  3. Good luck reaching your writing goals! Enjoy the Film Festival!

  4. Writing is far more important. Really, is sleep that vital? :P
