Back in Step

Well, I've been on a sort of mini writing vacation lately, as I've been rather busy. However, today I broke the 50k barrier, so I'm rather pleased with myself. And I have a new goal. I want to finish this book, which I'm estimating is about 3k from being done, my the end of the week. Yay. I love having new goals. And, with shiny, new Goals, of course, comes nice, pretty Mini Goals. My mini goal is to do 500 words a day, definitely possible.

So, all in all, I'm feeling very positive about the day and the week to come. Hopefully, after I finish this handwritten draft, I'll be able to type it up by the end of the month, though I haven't quite finished outlining the goals for that plan. But, I like how this is looking.


  1. Yay! Your motivation inspires me to get off my lazy butt and do some writing myself :).

    So how did you inspire yourself to keep going? Was it more of a story already outlined in your head or are you one of those "fly by the seat of your pants" writers?

  2. Well, it's probably because I'm lazy, but I kick things around it my head for a Long time. And then I outline, thus ensuring that I know at least sort of what's supposed to happen. Then, I just write.

    I make myself keep going, often by reminding myself, 'you Said you'd do it,' in a petulant voice. Apparently, my inner writer is six.
