So like the title says, new goals... or more specifically, old ones rehashed. Like I've said before, my weekly goal used to be 9000 words a week. Not even 3 days into my 5 week vacation I realized that wasn't going to happen. In fact, I barely wrote a thing that whole time. But I couldn't get the story out of my head... which I take to be a good sign.
Now, in the past 2 days I've written 3000 words, so I'm feeling pretty confident about making 9000 my goal again. I always start the new week on Sunday and then count my week finished when I close the computer Saturday night / early morning, whenever I finally go to bed.
I would really like to finish the rough draft of this story before I start school again (September 6th is residence move in day... oh yipee!) I think that's a relatively reasonable goal. It would make my life a whole lot easier if I could have that finished and just work on revision... because as an English major, History minor, I'm writing enough essays during the year that I won't have a whole lot of time to devote to a story. That's not to say I won't be writing one, however, LOL.
Since I brought it up, I guess I'll explain. I plan on finishing the rough draft of Forever by school, then working on revisions for the next month and a half-ish while brainstorming for my next story. Then for the rest of the school year, I'll focus on finding an agent willing to take me on ;) and write my new story.
Sound like a plan, Stan?
I'll update you later on tonight (probably before I finally go to bed) on how writing went. Wish me luck!!
