Last week I talked about how my writing had been rejuvenated and that I had made some changes in the way I approached my writing. That sense of progress and accomplishment is still with me though I think it has been tempered ever so slightly.
A little while ago I set a goal for myself beyond my 500 words per day. I want to have a book in print in time for me to warrant a vendor’s table at ConCarolinas in 2012. When I set that goal I was looking at my two major Works In Progress and seeing them as getting close to being ready for emitting…or at least they would be ready by the end of the year. Given where my writing has been leading me I’m not sure I’ll be finished by the end of the year with either of them.
So where does that leave me? I’ll keep on working my 500 word per day goal and I am still working toward my goal of finishing a book for editing by the end of the year, but I have tempered my excitement a little. Talking to other writers I talk with I see how minimal my volume really is, but I am working at it and I will hit my goals.
I have one story that is over 51,000 words and another at more than 42,000. When one of them hits 80,000 I will look at whether or not it is ready for an ending and some serious editing. I have a goal…and I am making progress…the future is mine to conquer.
