Weekly Goals 22-6-15

I'm home all week this week (and next), so it's time to get some serious writing done.  I'm heading toward the crucial half-way mark in my book, and I feel like maybe the pace is off a little.  Not enough has happened yet.  I've been leaving little notes for myself so when I go back to revise, I'll remember  what I think I need to add in each chapter.  Until I have a chance to read the whole lot through, I won't know if I'm right about the pacing.  So for now, I just keep writing forward and hope I hit my plot points where I want to hit them.

I have a lot of things going on at work, so it's going to be a busy week (as usual), not to mention it's almost the end of term for the kids, so we have all those things like parent-teacher interviews to squeeze in as well.  Not to mention figuring out what we're going to do with the kids for two weeks…

What are your goals this week?


  1. Hi Kate! I like the idea of leaving yourself notes on each chapter. Best wishes with that, (smile).

    This week, I'm continuing to improve health-wise.

  2. I tend to leave a lot of revision notes in the margins of my manuscript. And in a notebook, and on the walls containing the storyboard. I've been thinking my pacing is a little off, too.

    Enjoy your two weeks of serious writing!

  3. Well, you're home just in time to have the kids demanding your attention while you write :). I'm sure you'll figure out the pacing thing. That's what editing is for.
