Everyone’s filling the blog-waves with their New Year’s resolutions — so here’s my writing resolution.
5 pages a week on That Thing. Rain or shine. Hell or high water.
I started a schedule for myself just before Christmas, and I’m pleased that I’m every-so-slightly ahead of schedule. As of last week I was supposed to be at 55 pages — and I’m sitting pretty at 57. By the end of this week, I need to be sitting on 60.
I’m hoping to get ahead of schedule and stay ahead — but my creative and professional life has a way of throwing me curveballs consistently.
Compared to a lot of other ‘Pressers, I know this is a really conservative resolution. I’m looking at you Quill Wielder. But I’m hoping it’s something I can stick to it, and be cruising into 100+ pages by March — which should be very close to novel size, and something I can get serious about editing.
And after that — scary thoughts!
