# 29 - Working Toward a Goal

I did a pretty good job on working toward my goal this week, although I could do better.

My total word count for the week was 3661. I'm really excited about how the story is going. I've been coming up with a lot of good ideas, although there are still some holes in my mind about where some of the story lines are going.

There are a couple of story lines that don't really work together. I will probably keep one and cut the other, although those could always be saved for another story, or a sequel to this one. Wouldn't that be cool - to get to the point where my book is published and my fans are clambering for a sequel. :)

As for next week, I'd like to shoot for a goal of 6000 words, which is only 1000 words a day. I've exceeded that several times in the past, so I know it isn't unrealistic. Wish me luck. :D


  1. Here's to wishing you good luck! I really admire your ability to write. I lack talent in that area. I think things but putting them on paper is another story! Congrats on last week and good luck for the upcoming one! You can do it!!!!

  2. The fan part will come - just wait! Can you imagine what it'd be like though? I think of J.K. Rowling - she had people camping oustide of Barnes & Noble to get a wristband to get in line to buy her book. Amazing!

    Good work on the goal. Keep it up! (so I can read it someday when it's published!!)

  3. I'm so proud of you. Great job!


  4. I'm jealous that you get to work on your word goal. I'm excited for when I get some more time off from motherhood to get back on the wagon. Way to go!

  5. Jennifer -

    Good job! I think it's awesome that you are setting goals and consistently working towards them. You go girl!

    BTW - I tagged you. Come check it out.

  6. 1000 words a day is what I set my goal at when I'm writing a book. It's very doable . . . it's great you are keeping track because it's so fun to watch the total grow each day.


Thanks for leaving a comment! Come back soon! :o)
