Yesterday I started with a really good head of steam. Unfortunately, I had an unexpected personal issue that tied up part of my afternoon, so that set me back majorly. There was also an event at my son’s school yesterday evening, so I was limited in what ground I could make up last night. BUT, I was determined to make up ground and so I stayed up until almost midnight to keep pushing.
The ultra good news is that I finally fixed Chapter 25. It’s now Chapter 28. It’s still in the same place in the plot, there were just a lot of changes/additions in front of it. I feel pretty pleased with the change, it’s not huge or dramatic, just fixed. That is a really good outcome from yesterday.
Yesterday I set my goals up as: “I feel confident I can do 60 today, my stretch goal is 80, and my fantasy goal is 100.” I did 70 pages. I have 123 pages to go. Obviously I am not going to finish today, but I believe with a strong effort today and some solid weekend work that I can finish within the week.
Because my son will be with me today I am setting a difficult goal of 50 pages. I want to get cranking here, so I am out.
