So, I messed up on my word counting for the year and it’s somewhere around the 40-50k mark right now. It also get’s messy because I edited book one and didn’t keep track on what I did for it. So it may be either a lot more or a lot less. So, I’m just sticking to the 47k I have.
That’s a terrible number. Okay, yes I finally completed the book I’ve been working on for years which is a huge mile-stone, but next year I want everything to be different.
2015 – I’m going to complete 5 novels. I’ve started fixing up my graph and writing notes to myself on where to stop and finish and what dates I want to print off the books for editing. Jan and February are going to be for two of the books I’m working on now, February’s goal is to finish book 2, then the beginning of March I want to finish the other book. Then my mam is going to Australia in March, so I’ll take the peace and quiet to get started on a brand new book and have that completed by May. (I think it’s going to be easier because I have the ideas and chapter outlines for a handful of books already sorted and written out, I just need to find the time to write them).
Then I lose June and July to my sis’ wedding. So I’m just going to take the down-time to write my script and to keep writing novels, but without the word goals, and also editing the completed novels. I want to complete book 4 by September. Then take the winter months to finish off the following book in the series.
That’s the plan, but you know, they never happen as you liked them to. That’s why I’ve given myself those two months of free time, to either take a breather or to catch up with myself.
