WARNING: This is just me thinking how the hell I’m going to achieve all my goals by the end of 2010.
If I want draft #1 to be complete by the 4th of September, I need to write 500 words minimum everyday. But it’d be better if I wrote 600 everyday. (600 words everyday day for 88 days=52 800 words; that plus what I already have equals 83 670 words, which equals, hopefully, a complete novel.)
Can I do it? I have no idea.
Sure, lately I’ve been writing a lot, but it’s tiring and it hurts my back and my right wrist. A lot. If I keep this up, I’m going to end up in the hospital.
Maybe I should give myself until the 31st of December this year. That way I’ll have the Christmas holidays to write. And I just realized something: NaNoWriMo.
If I want to complete this novel, and draft 2 of Kenna’s Choice AND outline my NaNo novel and write it in November, I need to become superwoman. Hmm. Even if I finish draft 1 of PwD and draft 2 of K’sC and manage to outline the NaNo novel all before the 1st of November, I will be dead by the time I start writing the NaNo novel.
Hmm, what if I give myself until the 1st of October to do everything and during October I don’t write anything, I just keep preparing for NaNoWriMo? BUT next school year will be hell, how can I write 1666 words a day during November on top of school and homework?
I’ve said it many times before and I’ll say it again: school gets in the way of my writing.
