The daily challenge threads look fun but between working full time, a 9 year old, and an 18 year old, daily is just not realistic for me. Neither homework help nor Tuesday story-time are expendable.

Is anyone interested in a weekly goal thread to keep ourselves on track? Much like having a workout buddy has helped me get to the gym, I'd love to see people pushing at weekly goals to help keep me motivated!

I'm planning to re-start a novel next week after going back to the drawing board on a couple of my characters.

My goal is 6,000 words per week. I plan to keep track of weekly progress as well as overall progress.

The goal is to have a first draft done by the end of August. That puts me at about 60-72k words, which is about right for YA contemporary fantasy. If it ends up smaller, then that just gives me more cushion.
