Good morning!! Today is going to be a busy day for me, and until the SO goes to work, I may not get any time to write. Which is a sad day, but a necessary part of the balance of life. I write much better in the mornings than I do in the afternoons or evenings or nights. I have so much more focus, far less distractions. Anyone else feel like this?
So I’m hoping I get my minimum word count in for today, but if not, I do have a plan. I’m one day ahead of where I should be in terms of my 3k a day goal, so that means I can skip a day, right? This novel I’m working on, Lost & Forsaken, is very different from the others I’ve written like it. Which is nice, but at the same time, it’s hard. I feel as though my characters are struggling with it just as much as I am.
I’m catching up with Camp NaNoWriMo though! It’s my own fault for starting two weeks late into Camp, but I think I can make it up, barring any major emergencies. I’m 20% through with the book already, and about 31% done with Camp NaNo, so I’m definitely making progress finally. I’m about to start chapter 5 today, and once I complete that, I’ll be 25% of the way through concerning chapters =P Progress! Progress! Progress! (If I keep telling myself that, then maybe I’ll keep writing.)
ROW80 goals for the rest of April!
1. Write 3k words a day on Lost & Forsaken
Edit 2 chapters a day on Her Run for Rachael
I actually took a whole afternoon on Thursday and just finished this off for her. Her release was coming up, and I wanted her to have it sooner, so this goal is complete.
3. Edit 2 chapters a day on shorts for Kaden
Due to editing more on Rachael’s I didn’t quite do this. I’m still on the first chapter of the third short story. Tomorrow I’ll get back on track though.
4. Edit 1 chapter a day on Unbound: Book One of Quarter Life which is my own thing that’s supposed to be coming out in Oct.
This I have done! In fact, I did two more chapters than I was supposed to just because I could. =P I’ll skip doing it today though, so I can focus on writing when I get home from work.
