I'm officially back at work. Full-time, forty hours per week. With the additional responsibilities, I spent the weekend trying to ascertain how exactly to keep pace on a novel meant to exceed the 100k word mark, as well as the rewrite on the novelette. I still would like to have both done by the end of January so I can transition into Kickstarter as smoothly as I can.
I resolved to get up earlier; the more time I have in the day, the better. Mission accomplished.
Then I got to thinking; I was able to complete NaNoWriMo both times I attempted it. Fifty thousand words, one month.
But what if it could be done in three days?
Tall order, I know, so let me break it down like this.
Goal One: By the end of Wednesday, I would like to have a bare minimum of thirty thousand words completed on ATHEREAN DEFENDERS.
Goal Two: By the end of Wednesday, ideally, I would like to have a maximum of fifty-five thousand words completed on ATHEREAN DEFENDERS.
These are not NaNoWriMo words I'm talking about, either; I mean a maximum of fifty five thousand good words. Words I can pass off to an editor or show to my readers.
Twenty-five thousand minimum, fifty thousand maximum. Three days.
If you can see the image I've included (please forgive the quality, the iPad takes horrible photos), Atherean Defenders is currently at just under 5.4k good words. What I have here won't be revised much.
I'll post my progress. Wish me luck.
Thanks for reading.
