#IWSG: Writing and Word Count Goals

01 Feb


Insecure Writers Support Group Badge

Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

Afternoon everyone. I’m so sorry I nearly forgot about this month’s post. Have been busy the last few days cleaning up my desk and moving things around so that hopefully the writing goes better now that all my projects are in one place instead of scattered around the room. πŸ™‚

I’m working on creating a newslettter so look for the sign up box to go up soon. Also, working on some fun posts that I hope to have posted soon.

The writing is going well not like I want it to though but that is okay. I’m still writing each day which is good. May decide to do away with daily word count goals and just write each day and whatever count I reach I’ll be happy with. The goal is to write everyday anyway so I think for me trying to have daily word goals is something I can’t do because I get frustrated when I fall short of the goal for the day. I’ll still have monthly goals to try and stick to but get rid of the daily ones that way no matter what I’ll be happy with the writing I accomplish at the end of the day. πŸ™‚

That’s it for now.

Look forward to your comments. πŸ™‚

      That is so true. I’m still trying to figure out what I want to go in the first one. Thanks. Good luck on getting yours started too. πŸ™‚

    Then scrap the word count and just write uninhibited.
    Smart to start a newsletter now. Wish I’d done that years ago.

      That’s my plan. I think it’ll be better for me writing wise because there won’t be extra pressure on me to stick to a daily goal. Thanks. I totally understand. I wish I had started mine when I first started the blog. πŸ™‚
