WriMoProg Challenge Goals:


THIS MONTH’S GOAL: 62 (novels) + 26 (blog and other social media) = 88 (hours)

[X + Y = Z / total-hours goal, where X = writing/editing time, Y= other writerly tasks.]


Big plans for this month. We’re starting a whole new season (by my reckoning, at least) with December 1st. I’ve sketched out a plan to complete a first draft of the Hotel Novel between now and Feb. 28th.

Historically, I drag my feet and procrastinate too much, so I’m going to attempt to follow the advice of The Master: “The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.” I used to think that was completely unrealistic … then I watched working authors like Jonathan Janz and Hunter Shea turn out a couple of full-length novels (plus some shorter stuff) each year for the last couple of years.

I’ve blocked out two hours a day, every day, for the next three months. My goal is to generate at least 1050 words in each session. That’s a less overwhelming pace than NaNoWriMo, which comforts me. Wish me luck :)
