Welcome to Day 43...
Here we are, 43 days in and I have to confess, I'm not entirely sure it's working...
I'm referring to the way I've been setting up my goals for the week.
For the writing I've been focused on finishing a scene. The only problem is the creative mind goes, where the creative mind goes. Which means I've been getting sidetracked with adding new ideas to an existing chapter or I'll get motivated to work on another part of the story.
And yes, I've been getting a fair amount of writing done, but the scenes that I had "scheduled" to get done are still incomplete so...
I'm shifting to a new game plan.. a daily writing goal of a few hundred words a day.
That means the scenes will wrap up, when they're supposed to wrap up, and then really be complete. At least that's what I'm hoping. (I do have a tendency to tinker and add and update every time I revisit a chapter.)
So now on the to marketing...
Here's the thing... for the past few weeks I've been setting goals to finish much more than I can get done. (Keep in mind, my whole writing gig is part time - squeezed in between a full time job and a busy family.)
I have big goal ideas, but I really need to break them out more which will equates to smaller to do's over more time. And I'm going to go back over and revisit what was rushed through.
Maybe you're on track and everything you do has been working. If so, GREAT. Stick with it and keep moving forward. If not, why not try a different game plan?
