How am I doin'? I'll tell ya how I'm doin'...
I feel awesome (in a very 80's rock kind of way) because I absolutely love the camaraderie of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Or in my case, National Novel Revising Month (NaNoReviMo).
To be specific, this is how I have done:
- I have kept my daily writing/revising goals 12 out of the 14 days I've been at this thing. In fact, I turned it up a notch and doubled my daily goals. I went from committing to two hours per day, to four hours a day. And I've even been knocking that out of the park!
- I have worked my way through 83,000 of 96,000 words. That's a lot of freaking words. That's 280 of 330 pages, which is well past my 75 pages per week goal.
- Because I have moved so fast (and also because my agent told me to), I am going to throw another goal in there. Schedule some beta-readers to double-check my work. And then revise again.
So...how you doin'?
