View Full Version : Goal for my WIP...

02-10-2014, 09:48 PM
Is to finish the first draft by April 1st. I'm writing YA, and my rough guess for the total word count on my first draft is 69,000 (based on where I am in the story now, at 46,000 words. My goal for myself is to write 500 words every day, so even allowing for a miss here and there, April 1st feels like a reasonable deadline for a finished rough draft.

This is my first "substantial" attempt at a novel and it's gone really well so far! I'm still in love with my story idea, so that's something anyway!

That does sound like a reasonable date, and 500 words is very doable. Kudos for making your first goal achievable. A lot of newer writers struggle with that. Good luck!
