I am going to get straight to it.
Goal #1- I will write at least three days per week, at least one scene per day.
I got off to a slow start this week but so far I’ve completed two scenes in two days, adding about 1200 words to my WIP, and I still have today to get my third scene in (my week starts on Mondays). I know I stated that I wouldn’t focus on word count. And I’m not…not really. As I wrote, I focused on completing the scene and I was just curious as to my word count once I finished.
Goal #2- I will complete weekly assignments for my Gotham Writers Workshop online course
I completed my first assignment on time. WhooooHoooo. And I received feedback from the instructor (dun dun duuuuunnnn). I was afraid to submit my assignment. It was my first piece of writing (outside of the poetry class in college) to be critiqued and my anxiety level rose higher than I expected. I received some great feedback from the instructor and know the areas I need to focus on. For instance, I need to be a bit more concise so that I can get my point across in under 500 words. I glossed over a few things in order to stay within the guidelines of the assignment.
