Well, I cannot believe how quick the last week went.
First things first, how did I do last week?
My goal was 500 words a day on my novel, and to get the hand written edits on my short story collection finished.
The result: I kicked ass. I got all of the edits out-of-the-way early Friday evening, and hit over 750 words almost every day last week on my novel. I was so far ahead, that I took the weekend off to relax and just hang with the kids.
A new week has now begun however, and with the comes new goals. First and foremost is to get the edits typed up for the short story collection. Secondly, I would like to hit 500 words a day on my novel.
Today sadly will be a near whitewash. I got nothing written this morning. Well, I hit my 500 words, more in fact, but it was a blog post… does that still count? I guess so, in a way. I have tonight still, but never seen to get as much done in the evening as I do late at night or early in the morning.
Still, I am looking at the week as a whole. I want to crack on and get at least 75% of my corrections typed up. I think it is doable, providing I don’t keep faffing around and forgetting to send myself the files I need so I can write while at work.
I also need to approach my brother-in-law for the cover art. I have the image in my head, but have just never been too good at designing things on my own.
I’m keeping the goals basic this week, as I know I don’t have unlimited time, and really want to get this editing done and dusted. That way I can recruit some
victims beta readers to review the collection and let me know what they think.
What are your plans for the week ahead? I would love to hear them.
On a final note, during my Facebook wanderings this morning I came across a very talented artist. I have been looking at his stuff all day. Check him out and let me know if you think he is as good as I do. His name is Ben Baldwin, and he just could be designing your next cover.
