I’m inclined to just use the same four goals as last round (write 1000 words/week, and five days out of seven; reflect weekly; read six books), since they seemed to work pretty well.
But my real goal isn’t to surpass a word limit each week — it’s to finish writing a story. And that, I didn’t do.
To fix that, I’m aiming specifically to finish Conkers this round. Based on a fairly rough outline, I estimate the full story will be about 50 scenes, 10 of which are still unfinished.
That suggests I can finish Conkers by the end of this round. But I sometimes finish a scene in only 500 words, so I suspect doing two scenes a week should be possible. I’ll see how it goes.
For now, these are my weekly goals:
- Finish two scenes towards Conkers
- Write on at least five days
- Reflect on what I write
- Read half a book (i.e. one every two weeks)
Good luck and happy writing!
Edit: oops, forgot the linky.
