#amwriting Thursday

Admittedly, I haven't read a book to review for you this week.  I've set a lofty writing goal for myself and am determined to meet it.

I'm writing at least 1,800 words a day on my WIP.  That's a LOT for me.  My time is very limited between the day job and being a single mom, but I'm making it happen. 

Why?  Well, my WIP is so exciting and so fresh I just can't wait to finish it!  So, I set a goal -- finish it by the end of October.  The only way to accomplish that is by writing about 1,800 words a day...I did the math.

It's kind of like my own NaNoWriMo in October!  With an idea I started months ago.

*shrugs*  I'm excited, and that's what counts.

What are some of your writing goals right now?  Sometimes making them public knowledge is a push to actually do the work and get it done.  So let's hear it! 

Writing, editing, reading -- what are your goals?

Wow, that's amazing that you've managed to squeeze in that many words in one day. I don't even have kids, but sometimes writing everyday almost seems impossible. For the past month, I've been rigorously completely a revise and resubmit request from an agent. It's my goal to send it to her by the end of next week. I'm giving it one more thorough read-through this weekend. Fingers crossed. :)

That's awesome, Pam! Good luck!!!

Right now my goal is to be beta ready by the end of October. I've been saying that for months, but this is really it. I need to stop editing and let someone else get their hands on it!

Good luck, Holly! It sounds like you are working really hard towards your goal!
