I've Almost Completed My Challenge ~ Then What?



With the end of this 31 day blogging challenge fast approaching, I've been thinking about how I am going to proceed with at least one of my works in progress.  Blogging is pretty fun but writing fiction is my passion.  I still plan to do a blog post at least once a week, maybe more since I'll be updating my word count in the left margin almost daily.

I'm falling behind schedule a little when it comes to what I had planned to do starting the first of January.  I should be rewriting and editing the first book in my Sassy Johnson series right now.  Since I hadn't planned to publish until around June, I still have time to finish it, send it to an editor, find a cover artist and make all necessary corrections to the manuscript before submitting it to Amazon/Kindle.

I'll probably set word count goals like I did for NaNoWriMo to hold myself accountable.  I won't beat myself up if I don't meet a word goal but I'll just try to do better the next day.  I'll probably set weekly goals instead of daily goals so as long as I meet the goal for the week, I can kind of take my time each day if I need to.

Boy oh boy, I can't wait to get all of these stories out of my head so I can share them with people.

I am so proud of you abs the progress you're making. Maybe if I did something like this, I could get more writing done. I don't know, but it's worth a shot. I love that you're going to change from daily to weekly. It takes some of the pressure off. You go girl! Keep up the great work!

Thanks for reading and commenting.

I have to set goals or challenges for myself or I will never get anything done. It's been a cool experience but I can't wait to get back to my book(s).
