If you’ve been looking for a challenge to get your writing in gear, you’ve come to the right place! Through the month of March we will be cheering each other on to meet challenging goals with our writing.
Set your goal(s) in the comments of DENISE JADEN’S BLOG today so we can all keep each other accountable. Join in anytime, even if you didn’t find this post on March the first – just head on over to the designated day, drop in your goal, and start reporting in on your daily progress.
I’ll officially declare my goal at Denise’s blog as well, but just for an example, this month I plan to write 30k in my new WIP. This is the manuscript I worked on during nano, but while writing I knew some things just weren’t working. I spent the last few months figuring out how to fix them and created a new outline that I’m super excited about. It means starting from scratch, but I know my characters, the plot, and the world-building much better. I figure 30k is a reasonable goal since 1k a day might be doable even with my crazy work deadlines for the next two weeks. And if I end up missing a day, I know I can easily make it up in the last half of March.
So what’s your goal?
