Update | Staying on Track

Don’t get sidetracked by people who are not on track.


It’s update time, and I have no idea what I’ve been doing. Last month, I wrote that I’d written 36k in May. In June, I wrote 16.055 words. That’s quite a lot less. I’m currently 56.6% done with my yearly goal of writing 250.000 words, so still on track, I’d say. 

July is Camp NaNo month, and I signed up to do 20k. I’m nearing the end of Holly’s September story, so to write those 20k, I need to start a new one – bummer, right? LOL. New stories are the best 😀 

I’ve written 8.465 words in four days, but now work is messing up my flow. I’ll be back by my desk on Friday morning. 

The last few days, I’ve played with the idea of cleaning up a few WIPs and get them out there. More than once, I’ve convinced myself it’s a great idea, but then when it’s time to start working, I end up writing a new story instead. 

And I know I’ve been saying this for a couple of months now, but I need to write a holiday story if I’m gonna publish one this year. That deadline is coming closer and closer. I have an idea. Maybe I’ll go with that rather than finishing old stories.  

To wrap up, I’ve written 141.508 words so far during 2021, and that leaves me at 56.6% done 😀 

How are you doing with your goals? There is no shame in tweaking them should conditions have changed. There is still half a year left, and you can achieve great things in half a year.
