Round two starts here!
So in my wrap-up for round one, I gave myself a fail for lack of focus. This is going to be the basis of my new goals. And to get that focus, I’m giving myself a deadline. Arg! That’s one of the benefits of being an indie. No stinking deadlines from The Man! Well, maybe The Man’s got a point with this. Let me break it down.
Bite size goal pieces: Revise one to two chapters a week. I’ve got something like ten to go, so this is totally doable.
Daily goals: 250-500 words on workdays and 500-1000 on my days off. I was against word counts originally, but these are small enough so I don’t want to hang myself and it’ll keep me focused. (There’s that word again.) My chapters generally run 2000-3000 words, so at least a chapter a week makes sense.
Side goal: If I ever get stuck or frustrated with the WIP, I’ll switch over to plotting my next story.
Seems I never do anything very well the first time, but by the second, I’m in the groove. We shall see.
