First, thank you everyone who's blogged and tweeted so far about my $50.00 Amazon Gift Card giveaway! Your entry, or entries, are noted and I can't wait to send someone some free book buying money! If you haven't entered, please do, you have until Tuesday the 22nd!
Now, about this coming week. As I've said in earlier posts, my intention this Spring Break week is to work as much as I can on my current WIP (currently titled Midheaven.) The question is, how much is "as much as I can."
I'm talking specifics here, I'm talking an end of week word count goal that I can then break down into daily, manageable chunks.
I have, in total, 9 days.
My intention is to have a completed rough draft of this novel by September 2011. (I do most of my writing over breaks from school--summer is huge for me.)
I toyed with this number earlier but it made me nervous. 20,000 words in nine days. That, plus what I already have completed, will send me into the summer months with a 1/3 of the book finished in the rough.
Okay, so here it is. My intention, promise, goal to myself--I will add another 20,000 words, starting tomorrow at 4:00 am (oh God) to Midheaven by the end of March 27th.
I'll let you know how goes it.
(any and all words of support and/or encouragement are totally appreciated)
