Another quick check in today, as part of my unofficial participation on National Novel Writing Month.
Wrote for an hour this morning, mainly going over the three chapters I’ve been fussy with for the last few weeks. For the rest of the week, I have to move forward to make my new goal of two sections at least every week.
Even though my work has been slow for the past few weeks, knowing that I have to check in here has pushed me on. So, thanks to you guys for keeping me honest!
Need a little push yourself? Feel free to set a goal to check in here every day or every week and let us know how you’re doing. Like we learned from Kathi Appelt’s talk at the Brazos Valley SCBWI conference, having to deliver something — whether it’s 25 pages to an agent, whether she reads it or not, or writing on a blog — can give you that added push to fit writing into your schedule.
Good luck, and write on!
