Well another week has ended, and to be honest, I had already reached my goals for the round. I know, I know, I should just set myself new ones, but I fell into the trap of being lazy once my first draft was finished, and have struggled to drag myself out.
In my defence, I have started to edit, and have 12 pages finished. However, having two sick kids coughing and spluttering all day, and crying and coughing all night long takes it toll. Not only limiting my editing opportunities, but also destroying my sanity in one swoop.
Luckily, the noses seem to be clearing and the nights are getting less interrupted. Thus allowing me to get back into some form of routine. I am terrible at editing, and have no real tactic. No, I lie, I have several tactics, but that often serves to confuse me. Therefore I am setting myself a dual goal for the remainder of the round. To actually work out how I am going to edit is my first task, and to edit (I hope this is a very conservative estimate) 3 pages a day. I mean I don’t get very much time; not in one burst anyway, and I find editing takes longer to get into the groove than the act of writing. Still, I hope that I can be proven wrong and see my daily page total push onwards and upwards.
How are you all doing in terms of your initial goals? Have you met them, exceeded them or been forced to change them? Whatever the answer, I wish you all the best of luck, and thank you for dropping by.
