The Year So Far

As with most people, I have made New Year's resolutions. I Simply look at these as commitments to having a better year, leading to a better life. With the success of November still on my mind, I decided that I wanted to take it a step further and write year round. My basic goal is 1,000 words per day for the entire year.

The thought of having a minimum of 365,000 words at my disposal is intoxicating. In length terms, it is the equivalent of seven short novels. It will be a mix of short stories, and hopefully at least one or two new novels.

Thus far, two weeks in, I have written a little over 10,000 words. I am moderately behind, but I am hoping posts like this will drive me to keep moving forward.

Along with this, there are a few rules that I am keeping with. I can write more than 1,000 words a day, but it does not count off of my yearly total. Any extra words are just bonus. If I can get caught up over the next few days, this would trend out to nearly 400,000 words for the year.

I realize not all of it will be publishable, but it seems that any action where I am writing creativly will help hone my craft.

  1. Or six regular sized stories... or five bigish stories...
