Wednesday Writing Goal

You know that great feeling you get when you're only a few chapters away from finishing a round of editing? I've got that feeling! *happy dance* Good thing this isn't a vlog, you SO don't want to see my happy dance. I didn't just make my goals last week, I blew past them! When I finish this round I'll be revisiting a special project for a few weeks, then I'll be free for two months to work on my new book. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to return to it. I love working on the channeler series but there's nothing quite like writing fresh words.

Did you make your writing goals for last week? What are your new goals? Do you love writing a new book or are your best times spent with your manuscript during editing?

  1. I did make my write goals... because they were all about blogging... And, editing, and brainstorming. Love to plan. Goals are the driving force of life! Congratulations on yours.

  2. Congratulations, Heather!! I'd LOVE to see that happy dance :-)
    My writing goals for last week were to finish critiquing a crit partner's exciting novel (you know who), and at the same time to finish revisions from my editor on mine. I did it! Woo hoo!! Now I can take a few days to play w/query letter writing.

  3. Since my world is so hectic I make bi-monthly goals. Mine is to finish MORE THAN A NAME, edits and all, by the end of November. It's good to have a goal so long as you realize sometimes it's better to be late with a better product than on time with a flawed one. A good post as always, Roland

  4. Karlene, so true, and congratulations on yours too!

    Linda, thank you, and uh, not gonna happen. You SO don't want to see it! Congratulations to you too and yay for query letter writing!

    Roland, that's a good idea, bi-monthly goals, I like that. And so true, best to do it right the first time!

  5. I think your happy dance is probably really cute. Congrats on getting closer to hitting a milestone. :)

    I'm the weird chick that likes editing more than drafting.

    Due to my day job, I haven't been able to spend as much time but I think I will still get lots done in the next two months. Woot!

  6. I am definitely pro-writing new as opposed to revising. However, there is a point in the middle where I can't get my head in the game and want to scrap it. Must press on. Must press on.
    BTW, love that you have control-freak gene to my high-maintenance gene. The two of us will be unstoppable:)

  7. Karen, lol, thanks! You and me both, editing is the bomg. :)

    Christa, I wish I was! Ah, the dreaded middle, yes pressing on is the only way to go. LOL, we would be unstoppable together!

  9. Congrats on surpassing your goals! That's always the best feeling. It makes me itch to write a few new ones of my own. :-)

  11. Congratulations! And how awesome that you have your other projects to look forward to. I'm actually anxious to to get to the editing stage of my current WIP - I love tearing into my own work.

  12. I'm doing an awkward virtual happy dance for you, Heather! :) My school year still has my life a bit topsy-turvy, but hoping to make progress after next week's parent-teacher conferences. I wrote 850 words, though, which is a lot for me lately. Good luck!!

  13. Yes, I accomplished a great goal for last week, I finished off a fanfiction story that I started in January.

    My goal for this week is to rewrite a fantasy story that I got some critiques of. Whooo!
