Since we haven't had a WriMo for this month, I've written a grand total of zero words. I had no idea that having a publicly stated goal could help so much. I asked Heather about it, and she said there was a Writing Progress Thread at the old site. I'd love if this could be a place to publicly state goals and progress. I loved seeing what other people were aspiring for, and what they were accomplishing. I loved reading about how it was going, whether it be easy or hard or what.
Hopefully you will join me?
My progress for now: in December I finished two stories, and haven't written a word since. I have started thinking about a new plot, and so my goal for January would be to write 15,000 words for it.
(I really need to publicly state this goal. I've been fretting about it so much, but for some reason, writing it down helps! Even though I finished two stories (my first two since 20 years ago, I think), when it comes to actually putting words on the page I have no confidence that I could do it again. But if I just have a number of words to spit out, it makes it do-able.)
Do you have any goals for January, or for another amount of time? How are things going for you? I love hearing about how everyone's writing is coming along.
