My daily goal at the moment is 750 words. Yesterday I got 796 and today I got a whopping 1429. The only bummer was that they weren’t on the same story.
I’m going to try and keep a tab somewhere on this blog of my daily word counts. Anyone wishing to join in, just leave comments or better yet, go see if Holly Lisle is doing her “Write a Book with Me” game. I know when she had migraines she took off from that, and she’s got a ton of new lessons up and coming so I am not sure she is, but if you’re a member on her forums (some are free) then you can catch up with some games going on there. Or you can just run over to Twitter and play some word wars – there are almost always some going on.
The other thing I marked off my ‘To Do’ List today was to gather up my current open stories (with more than 1000 words OR part of a series, a full plot and mainly erotic content) list where I am with them and put them in plain view.
So far I’ve got only a handful that meet that exact criteria, though I also have two that I started writing in notebooks while I was at work, and those two I need to start typing up soon.
All titles are working titles.
“New Territory” (Corrine’s Adventures): 501/3500
“Lessons in Sharing” (Corrine’s Adventures): 0/3500
“Full Submission” (Corrine’s Adventures): 0/3500
“Leo & Mariana” 3537/5000
“Beauty and the Biker” 2908/8000
Rook City Fire Fighters: 20,979/30,000
My goal is to have set deadlines to have the first drafts finished, sent off to my betas, get my cover artist to work on covers, then get them back to format then publish. I’ve got more goals than what I have listed on the board, but this is how I am keeping things covered for now.
I am hoping to be able to get another story published by mid to late July.
