ROW80 – Midweek Check-in 7/6/11

Posted in Writing at 7:41 am by Amber

Happy Wednesday!

My goal for Round 3 of A Round of Words in 80 Days is to write another 10,000 words on my unfinished fantasy manuscript. I did the math and that averages to 125 words a day. Knowing myself, some days will be more and some days will be less. So far so good.

Goal: 10,000 Words
Words Written: 279
Progress: On Track

I did something crazy. I signed up to write a new short story every week from July 2011 to June 2012. Don’t be surprised if sometime this year you find me incorporating it into my writing goals.

    That’s the way to do it! If you set yourself 125 words a day, then you can “bank” them if you’re over, and have a free day or whatever. That’s great.
    I like your idea of incorporating your short stories in your word count. I mean, why not kill two birds with one stone? Who knows, maybe your short stories are connected to your fantasy ms in some way.
