Weekly Goals - A little late 9-8-16

I totally forgot to post yesterday!  How unlike me…

I think it's because we're in the middle of a 5-day-and-counting winter storm and the rain and hail and freezing temperature distracted me from my normal Monday routine.

So….  Goals.  I actually have some real ones this week.  My writing hiatus is over and I'm all about revising my as-yet-untitled book (I'm calling it Sam and Amy at the moment, because those are my main characters' names).

My goal is to revise ten chapters this week.  I'm not sure that's realistic, given the amount of work I think this book needs, but I like to aim high at the start.  I got through two chapters last night, but one was definitely more difficult than the other.  I find that is usually the case with dual POV - one voice is always more of a challenge to get right.

So let's see if I can get through those first ten chapters.  There are currently forty in the whole book, so if things go to plan, I'll be done and dusted in a month.  I'm sure it will be more like six weeks or more, but a girl can dream, right?

What are your goals this week?


  1. It's still the eighth for me so you're still good :). Good luck with your goals. Those dual POVs are tough.

  2. Good luck. With forty chapters, it's hugely wise to break up the revision process.

  3. Good luck with your goals. And I hope your winter storm will soon be over.
