It’s the final push for that first draft. I’ve finished all other assignments for my MA, so no excuses, no procrastination. I’ve broken it down to make it seem manageable: I need to write at least 600 words of my novel per day (from today) to complete the first draft this calendar year, and allow time for editing and revisions in 2014. It sounds easy, but life can so often get in the way. However, I’ve been looking forward to this phase all summer and feel a new determination settling over me. Thank goodness. Plus, my new writing ‘den’ is almost up and running. I’ll be showing you around within the next few days.
Six-hundred words per day until 31st December 2013.
That’s my deadline within the final deadline, which is
to submit the novel next September.
