Writing Update, and How to Keep Going

I’m directly on track with my novel! I’ve edited 800-ish words every day for the past two weeks. From past experience, however, this is the most dangerous time for me. Once I feel satisfied with myself, I’m much more willing to slack off. After slacking off, I’m in danger of giving up altogether.

The solution?

This time I only let that satisfaction sink in for a few minutes. First I crowed gleefully like Peter Pan (well, with words and not actually any crowing); then I moved on, calculated word counts, and planned tomorrow’s quota. 

Goals:

  • August: edit 40k (25k finished, 15k to go!) 
  • September: write 15k
  • October: write 15k
  • November: write 10k

How’s writing coming for you? Successes? Struggles?
