Anyone who has been around long enough to see my post Change of Pace: Summer Holidays will know that I set up a minimum word count goal to reach before college starts again.
With college approaching rapidly and set to begin on Tuesday, the final stretch to the goal has begun. Because of this, I’m rushing to the finish line. Yesterday, I racked up a word count of 2,445, successfully finishing off Chapter Fifteen of Tales of The Forbidden and getting well into Chapter Sixteen. Today, by noon, I racked up a word count of 1,470, thereby completing Chapter Sixteen.
If I keep this up, my goal is not far off.
As you’ll see in the progress bar in my sidebar, I’m only a little under 3,000 words short to 50,000. Three full days to go, as well as the rest of today, should I decide to get some more writing done. If I write 1,000 words per day, I’ll hit my target right on time.
In the past, I’ve been extremely lax when it came to deadlines. This is my first step in the right direction – to change that. Making this deadline will mean that I finally got one done on time. It will boost my confidence for the deadline I set for myself for the novel in its entirety.
I want to reach this goal. I need to reach this goal.
Keep a wary eye on that progress bar. Before you know it, it’ll say “50,000”.
What’s the first goal you ever accomplished? How did it make you feel? Let me know!
