My personal goal for November is 30,000. So today's ike every day, is 1,000 words. Tell me your goal and meet me here by midnight to share your results.

My computer was not working for the last few days, but now it is up and running!  So I finished proofing the edtis from the editor I hired and from my Dad.  Next job is to ask my brother (the computer wiz) to show me how to convert a word doc into a PDF and then see what else Createspace wants or needs.  Later,  EJ.

Wow, Serena!  That's such a great goal.  I was thinking there was no way I could do that, but I just checked my word count and it's at 12,000.  I want to set my goal to 2,000 words today, but I will be doing some editing, so I'll be lucky to get there.  I forgot to post yesterday; it was 2 a.m. before I got that blog post done....one of THOSE days.  

I'll try to be back at midnight, Serena :)

Today's been fantastic! It's flowing!!  I have some concerns about where the plot is going...trying to surrender it.

My goal for today was two-fold: (1) At least 2k, my daily goal, which I've missed each of the last three days and (2) cross the 25k plateau.

 

I'm pleased to say I was able to do both.  I wrote 2,376 words and my overall total is now 25,106.

Thanks, Elaine!  I'm in for the 50k this month, although if I meet my target of averaging 2k per day, I should finish with 60k or more.  That's pretty good for what I imagine shall be an 80-90k novel.  I'm going to keep writing past November 30th, at least every other day, until I'm done.  My bigger goal is have an entire draft done before New Year's.

And you, Elaine!  How are you doing?  Yesterday?  Overall?

Good for you!  Wow, a 10k target...  Can't even allow myself to imagine such.  But I do stretch on the weekends.  Last weekend, I doubled my targets to 4k.  Made 3k+ each day, and that was good enough for me.

Debut novelists are warned not to treat our books as if they were prized, long-awaited babies.  I’m guilty as charged – but, after all, I spent 13 years researching and writing and rewriting An Address in Amsterdam.  It’s the story of a young Jewish…See More
