Monday Of A New Month
Lately I've been doing plenty of 'writerly stuff' but not much writing. Even my husband asked this weekend if I was writing new material again. He thought it seemed like a long time since I had written anything new.
Then he made the mistake of asking my about my current WIP, and he got treated to a twenty minute synopsis, and I got a reminder about that I love this story and I'm excited to work on it.
In order to finish the editing, I need to set some measurable, attainable goals. I have eight more chapters to edit. That means I must complete at least two chapters per week. The editing involves rewriting and reworking a manuscript I wrote a long time ago, so there are lots of things to change. I've learned a lot in the years since I wrote this story. I've found my authorial voice, learned about deep POV, and learned to write much tighter.
So, my goal for this month is to edit two chapters per day and to finish this WIP.
How about you? What are your goals for April?
