I was very optimistic when I wrote my writing goals last week. I still am, but I've already had a few bumps in the new year. I'm almost to 56k, which means I've written over 10,000 new words, but I was hoping to already have reached 60k by now.
But, I'm ok with that.
I'm really happy with some of the new scenes I've added and I still have several big ones coming up. At first I went through the document and randomly picked what scene I wanted to work on, but now I'm going through chronologically. I added a new opening chapter and among other things, my MC gets stabbed, so now I have to make sure I incorporate his wound throughout the story. Just little details here and there, but it's a good way to also read through it once more.
We had family come to town yesterday so I was only able to work in the morning, then my dad arrives this Thursday (YAY!!!). That means I have today and tomorrow to really try to crank this out. I know I'll still be able to work once my dad is here, but I'll want to spend time with him, especially when he first arrives.
How are you doing with your goals now that we're almost a WEEK in 2009?
