Friday…almost the weekend!

4 Comments

It’s Friday! Yes, I’m ready for the weekend. It’s been a busy week and I need a little down time to process. Also, I need to do some word count catch-up.

If you’re a writer, have you focused on your work as you should? Hard question? Well, yes it is. Especially if you’re not a full-time writer. If you have another job, it’s hard to stay on your word count, but you push forward. Yes, it’s hard to do, but if you focus on the goal, you’ll achieve the word count.

My suggestion to help with this focus. Start a calendar and figure out how fast you can achieve 1000 words. Maybe you do it in an hour, maybe less, maybe more. Then set aside that time every day or at least a couple of times a week. If you need to complete a 50,000-word manuscript, then you need 50 days of writing. Makeup the days you miss. This is what i do on the weekend, I make up the days I miss and try to get where I should be.

Set goals too. If you do this, you’ll come closer to achieving your word count. Try it and let me know how it works.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

  1. It can be such a struggle to make time for writing when you work a full time job! Took me the first six months of this year to finally nail down a first draft, but now I’m finally onto draft 2 and writing more regularly every day. Just gotta keep yourself motivated!

  2. Even a small word count works. I belong to the 10 Minute Novelists group on Facebook, and we’re doing a challenge based on word counts per day. I’m in the smallest group because I wasn’t sure I could do anything more, and I have excelled in the group. It’s only 274 words per day, or 100,000 words by the end of the year.
