I am happy to say that I have had one of my most productive weeks in weeks maybe months!
First, recap of goals:
By 11th of June have a finished first draft of my
Test mile - 250 words a day.
(1,750 words in a week)
Read two books a week for 100+ reading challenge (or as much as I
Review one book a month.
Here how my week has looked:
And I wrote my book review for the month of May which can be seen here so goal 4 met.
Total word count for week - 1635
I didn't write on Friday because I packed up for my week off from work and came to stay with my sister and brother in law so I spent the evening with them. She is due her first baby any minute now (am sure I have mentioned it once or twice!) so I am here for the week. I have felt more like my old self e.g. on Tuesday I had a friend come to stay from work so I knew I wouldn't have time in the evening so I wrote before work. Felt very NaNo!! I haven't made any sprints as work has been mad so I have been getting in later than the sprints start but I love seeing how everyone else has got on.
So am on track for goal 1, only missed one test mile so am doing well with goal 2 and I posted my review for goal 4. Goal 3 has been tricky as I seem to be finding it hard to find time to read which I hate!! I am on book 39 so a bit behind but hopefully I will read lots this week although I have to write a report for each child in my class which will take up lots of time.
What I am really excited by is the fact that I am so close to writing The End! I have one or two scenes to write to end my WIP and I have thought of one I want to write to include earlier but I am getting there. I have written in a linear fashion from start to finish and I think this works best for me so I have learnt something about myself as a writer! I have no idea of the length of my WIP as I have been writing in a notepad so I will have to type those bits up when I have finished before I start editing. Oh yes, and I need to read up on editing at some point. Editing is going to be mammoth as the first 50,000 words are in third person and from then on first person so going to need lots of work. Oh and I should really give it a title. So much to do!!
I hope you have all had great weeks! :)
