If you don't know what's going on, or if you want a reminder of what I've done so far, here are the links to my first and second posts.
So after assigning the above goal last week, I felt a bit like I'd lost my mind. How the hell was I going to write nearly 10, 000 words in one week? It was impossible! There was no way I was going to finish!
And then I smartened up and got to work.
So without further adieu, here are my numbers for last week...
Last Week's Numbers
From March 4th to March 10th (7 days) I wrote: 10, 609 words
Average Daily Word Count: 1516 words
I did it! I did it! I did it! Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!
Not only did I meet my goal, but I surpassed it! I'm so proud of myself right now. After going months without writing anything worthwhile, I am finally making progress on this story again. I can't even explain how good this feels. At this point I don't even care if I meet my April 1st goal--I'm just happy I'm writing again.
I had to stay up late a few nights to meet my goal, but I did it. I finished two chapters this week, and got a good start on several others (I jumped around a lot depending on my mood). I was hoping to have another chapter or two done before this post, but I got a bit fickle near the end of the week. I didn't want to stick with one scene, so I let my Muse go where she wanted.
My Alpha also had a chance to read three chapters for me, which was very handy. I'm constantly worried about pacing, but she assured me there wasn't a problem. We will have to wait and see once I'm finished this draft. For now, I am inclined to take her word on it.
This Week's Goals
Weekly Goal: 9609 words
Days Remaining: 21
Days Remaining: 21
Unfortunately, this week will be busy again. We have a few family obligations we're hoping to fulfill and my hubby has several Scout meetings. On the plus side, I normally go to Starbucks during his meetings, so hopefully I'll get a lot of work done there. Either way, I need to learn to write around a busy schedule. If we're this active now I can't imagine how insane it'll be once we have children.
So how has your week been? Meet any goals?
