Today begins a two-week writing marathon. My (rather ambitious) goal is to finish my novel-in-progress. Here’s a screen shot of my current stats (from Scrivener):
30,000 words to go; 10 business days to do it in. That means 3000 words a day. Folks, I’ve never written that much, that fast. But I have another novel lined up behind this one, which I really want to get started on; I’m thirty-seven and not famous yet; I’ve carved out this space from a demanding day job; and the only way out is through.
Materials: Scrivener; my trusty Lenovo which I got at the end of last year’s novel enduro; a new pair of yoga pants; typing fingers; playlists. Plus a new cat tree, meant to keep the cats off my desk (wish me luck).
Cuing up my playlists… pouring the coffee… wrapping a scarf around my neck… and GO.
