There isn’t much to report, so I’ll keep this a short post. Today hubby and I carved a jack-o-lantern. It’s pretty basic, but here it is:
I’m trying to slowly increase my weekly word count. I’ve been hovering around 5-6K, and I’d like that to be more like 8-10K. Any advice on how to do this? I’m thinking of adding in another writing sprint each day, maybe in the morning. If I can show up at the page earlier and write first thing, along with my morning coffee, that might get me to about 2K each day. It would also give me a chance to write before all the other things that fill my days start crowding my brain. Thoughts?
1.) Work on the first draft of my YA steampunk novel “The Clockwork in the Stars.” Wrote 5,628 words.
2.) Read three books on the craft/business of writing. Continued reading “Writing the Breakout Novel” by Donald Maass.
Social media goals:
1.) Check in on Twitter or Facebook daily. Met for every day except Thursday.
2.) Blog twice a week. Goal met.
3.) Comment on three to five blogs per day, Monday-Thursday. Goal met.
