Hey you! Whether you are a crazy novel writing machine or whether you got 400 words in this week, what’s up? Did you meet the goals you set last week? Did you exceed them or fall a little short?
Make sure your goals are attainable but also something you’ll have to work for!
This week was a bit rough for me. I was sick, my husband was out of the country Mon-Fri, and…and…and. I did make my goal. (ok, I will! As I write this I’m a few hundred words short but I can get that before Monday). So, I did make my goal but I think I could’ve done more. There were times where my son was at school, daughter was occupied, and I just chose not to write. This is fine any other day, but I would like to come out of November with something more than status quo. So, I’m going to do more this week. Maybe my goal won’t be something insane, but those times when I just sit there scrolling Twitter feeds looking for a blog post to read or checking out pictures of your cat, I’m going to grab my laptop and just add a few words. Or jot down scene ideas. Something more!
So, thanks for joining us this past week and/or this coming week. Let’s get some words in and push ourselves even more this week.
Comment below with:
1. Your name/Twitter handle
2. How this past week went
3. This coming week’s writing goal(s). Is it to write every day? Increase word count? Amount of hours you’ll set aside? Pages revised? Specific scene rewrite? Whatever! You need to get done!
4. If you could take a solo, one week writer’s retreat, yes–just you, (friends & family happy to see you go alone, babysitter check, day job money compensated, airfare check!) where would you go?
