*Writing Goal Update*
Quick review for those of you just tuning in: Last week I figured out I was running late WAY late for the date I set to finish my book. Late as in I needed to write at least 30,000 words in 7 days. That, was Thursday. Today is Thursday. One week. It's over...almost.
Here's my goal: 30,000+ words
Here's what I have as of Wednesday night: 28, 909 words.
Good news the day isn't over yet and I can easily reach 30,000. I am SUPER excited about this.
More good news. The actual date I need to be completely done is FRIDAY according to my deadline, that is the 15th of October and the day I need to have my novel D.O.N.E. done.
Here's the deal: I need another 10-15,000 words to make that happen.
Can I do it?
I don't know.
Will I try?
Revised goal: finish book by Friday
