2 pages of writing a day. This has always been my goal when I’m in a writing mode. Sometimes I accomplish a little more, but I try never to write less. This summer I’m getting writing time in bigger chunks spread farther apart. So I’m faced with a dilemma; dare I try to adopt a bigger goal? I would like to have a first draft on my new w.i.p. finished by the end of the summer. Dare I do the math and see what that would require?
240 pages (approximate estimated length of novel) – 60 pages (already written) = 180
180 (divided by a number I never like to count -days of summer) = About 5 pages a day.
Whoa, that’s two and a half times my current goal!
Ambitious, a little scary for me, but certainly possible.
