#WriterRecharge Week Two

Writer Recharge

So! Last week I said I wanted to accomplish:

250 words written at least five days of this week. (1250 words at least)
Reading 20 pages of a book (trying to finish a rather large one)
Get at least another five chapters outlined of next book.

So? What did I manage?

Total word count for the week : 2958 (waaaaay more than I hoped for)
Reading goals: 100 pages EXACTLY. Now about 80% finished with large book
Chapters outlined? No. None. Nada. BUT-I did get my promo list started for Loran Rudder and the Secret Key which will hopefully be coming out soon.

Even though the outlining didn’t happen, that is truly okay. I feel majorly accomplished, and feel so awesome about what I have done for this challenge thus far.

For next week I want to:

Write 250 a day for 5 days or 1250 words
Finish this book I am reading and get on to the next one
Get those chapters outlined that I didn’t do this week.

I know my goals are pretty sad, sort of dull. But I am making goals that I know I can achieve. I am being kind to myself and thereby doing far more than expected.

I am SO excited to be this far this month! I hope your month is going well. I will be stopping by my friends blogs to check out their progress!

      I was zooming along too fast there, clearly, heh.

    That’s great! Congrats on the word count:-) It’s always such a huge sense of accomplishment. You rock!

    Well done on the word count, Kim! It’s far more important that your goals are realistic and achievable, rather than breaking something trying to achieve the impossible (and being inevitably disappointed and discouraged). So keep up the great work this week! 🙂

    Nice work on your word count! I also want to finish a book and an audiobook this week. I didn’t even think to include those goals.

    You blew that word goal out of the water! Awesome! Seems like you’re doing great with your goals, hope you another productive week 🙂

    Keep plugging. I’m recouping my losses from last week as well. Besides! Look at that glorious WC! You’ve got this in the bag 😀

    Kim, if your goals are dull, so are mine. Write, read, repeat. 🙂 You did awesome with your word count this week. Hope you’re able to keep up your momentum!

    Your goals are not dull! And it sounds like you are doing AWESOME with the writing! Keep it up! I hope you have another great week!

    Congrats on the word count, Kim! And on the reading. I think it’s always good to balance work and pleasure (even if the reading is still kind of work/research!). Keep it up. Good luck this week!

    Your goals aren’t dull, they’re smart – look at how much you’re getting done. Hope you have another productive week!

  12. Adrianne

    Those goals sound great to me. Have an awesome week!

    Isn’t it a great feeling when you end up writing more than you’d expected to?

    Good luck with the chapter outlines. Like you, I’m also a plotter. =)
