Forget NaNoWriMo. This is my own personal challenge: to write 10,000 words this weekend. Each day thereafter, I plan to dedicate at least 2000 words each day until The Fifth Circle is complete. I’m tired of lugging the heavy burden of four Works In Progress, therefore I’ve decided to finish the book with the largest word count. At a whopping 41,000 words just a couple of days ago, The Fifth Circle now weighs in a total of 51,000. <The crowd goes wild>
Once the first draft of The Fifth Circle is complete (which will be within the next couple of weeks if I stay on track), I plan to devote all my time to writing the final book in The Claiming Words series. I hope to have it completed by the end of the year, but that depends on how wordy and long-winded I get.
In other boring news…I started writing a new book the other day. I love it so much, I’m using it as an incentive to complete my other goals. If I finish my word count goal on my other books, I am rewarded by being allowed to spend time on my new one. (I know…I grow increasingly strange with each passing day.)
I’m hoping I’ll be able to post a new entry titled, “I’m Finished” within the next few weeks. Until then, I’d better save my wordiness for my book and stop procrastinating.
