Clarion Write-a-thon Week 1
A little bit of a rocky week, especially Friday. Ideally, I’d like to average 1,000 words/day. That’d be awesome. Life creeps up, with unavoidable things like responsibility and sleep but I have a secret that I’ll share with you. Lean a little close. That’s it, just a little closer.
It’s a little maddening to miss your goals. I live by my TODO list and I hate leaving things unfinished at the end of the day. You can’t beat yourself up over it, though. Make adjustments, if it’s a chronic problem (like overcommitment). In the end, though, it comes down to one thing:
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Several of you have made donations totaling $175 dollars, blowing away my personal expectations for fundraising for Clarion.
I know Scrivener Fu. And I use Project Targets like a boss. I fell short on my word count last week but I know exactly what I need to do to stay on target. Week two is already ahead of schedule:
|Resetting my Session Target each morning, I know the minimum I need to write to maintain my pace, and any overage will work in my favor the next day.|
Overall, I’m quite happy with the way things are going. I’ve been doing a fair amount of revising, which is slowing things down a little bit but it needs to be done, especially if I want to start tormenting beta readers with a draft of this monster later this year.
