Okay, I have some writing deadlines set. I'm posting them here so you people can give me a kick in the pants if it looks like I might not meet them. Wink

* I want to have the second draft of The Enigma finished by the end of August. If I really work at it, it won't take nearly that long -- but I am going to be doing a LOT this summer, including summer AP assignments. So I don't know how much time I'll have to work on it.

* I want to have The Silent Halls (at least the first draft) finished by Halloween. Again, it probably won't take me that long, but I want a good, solid deadline in case I don't have a lot of time this summer.

* I want to at least have some requests for partials under my belt by December.

*My ultimate goal is to land an agent by the time I graduate high school. Aiming a little high, perhaps, but I'm nothing if not a psycho who sets crazy goals. ( Laughing )

That's what I've got for now. If I really work at it, I can meet all of these. So...*rubs hands together*...let's get it started, shall we?

*Gets down to writing*

Great targets!

Mine is to get the edits done on my last book when I get them back form my editor - and to crack on with my new WIP. I want to have half a dozen chapters written before I go on holiday in August - and I've only just started the second chapter at the moment.

Ok so as part of my 'new year' (celtic) resolutions - i'm doing 52-12

Basically i plan on doing a poem a week (52)

and a short story a month (12) with the hope of getting 10% published!


So my hope is this time next week, i'll have my first poem done and i'll have a few hours reworking/editing done on an already existing first draft. By the end of this month i hope to a] have four poems b]one decent polished short story Smile

*fingers crossed*

Apart from my writing (and weight loss) goals - i'm going to start up my recruiting campaign for new members, i'm hoping to have 200 by christmas!

If 10% of 200 were regular and active posters i think this community would really blossom!

So, if you have an friends etc. who you feel like man-handling, i'd appreciate it Wink Laughing

I want to try and get 30k done this month. I know it probably won't happen, but I need to get back into writing again. I'm already a little behind, but it's a target! We'll see how it goes. Rolling Eyes

My laptop is still dead so theres no hope for me in regards to wordcount.

BUT i've had an epiphany with my wip and have split the premise into two very different stories as it was waaayyy too much for one story. So i'm kind of excited about the premise of my new story but i know it'll take alot of work to pull it off properly so i'm going to give myself 3 months (from when get my laptop) to research it properly. then 3 months to draft and then 6 months to write up.

Cool, Emily. I wish I could get my WIP finished under that kind of time frame. I've been working on it about 1 1/2 years and I still have so much to do. I just need to figure out how to set aside more time.

Thanks MM!

Well I've my laptop. YAY!!!

So i've been busy with PhD stuff but i've outline done for my first three chapters. I'm doing eveything by ear and rough - I'm doing it my way Wink and i don't think i've ever felt so positive about WIP before.

It's paranormal romance with a dash of horror/thriller and probably been done to death by time i get it done but I'm really happy with it Smile
