:~: Tuesday, August 28, 2007 :~:


Okay, I'm throwing this out there. Blame Joan for talking me into a mini-writing challenge last night.

I agreed to writing 1000 words a day for 100 days. Which would technically give me a 100,000-word manuscript in roughly 3 1/3 months. Of course, I'm not starting anything new, and I'm not going to try to finish a new book. I am, however, going to work on several different things and spread my 100,000-words out over a variety of projects.

So, between now and the middle of December, I'm going to:

1. Finish DTM. I have 8 scenes to go. Polish it and get it off to my agent.
2. Incorporate CP edits into BTS. Polish one more time and send off to my agent.
3. Finish proposal for V (polish first three chapters and write dreaded synopsis). Send to agent.

And while doing all that polishing, I still need to get my 1000-words a day in on the following projects:

4. Write proposal for Marked (working title).
5. Write proposal for Proof Positive (working title).

That's it. Between now and Christmas (basically), I want to send two full ms's to my agent and three proposals. Then I'll decide which proposal I'm going to zoom in on and finish.

What are your goals for the rest of 2007?

Holy cow!! You one-upped me on that writing challenge deal.

I said: 1000 a day.

I DIDN'T say: 1000 words a day for 100 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But, okay, I'm game. Anyone else want to join us? Comeon, you know you wanna.

Like E, I want to spread my 1000 words out over a few projects.
1) Continue writing first draft of Black Velvet (working title)

2) Finish the last 2-5 chapters of Dead Man's Hand.

3) Polish DMH for 2008 GH entry.

4) Take another look at both Safe In Enemy Arms and The Art of Danger and polish for a possible second entry in the 2008 GH

I think that's it for me.

Thanks, E. I wrote my first 705 words this morning. Planning on finishing up that lingering 295 this afternoon.

ROFLMAO. Did you or did you not say at 1000 words a day you could have a 100,000-word ms in little more than 3 months????

Your goals sound great, J.

And now that Gremlin #3 is napping, I'm off to tackle those 1000 words.

1000 words a day???? You're BOTH crazy! I could handle 100 words a day for 100 days.

My goals for the ret of the year are:

1. Polish TCAFS and start submitting it.

2. Polish FP (AGAIN) with all the things I've learned since I first "finished" it just to prove to myself that I can.

Plot HHC and book #4 in my series.
Begin writing HHC.

LOL, Lexie. I think you'd be surprised at what you can do if you put your mind to it (says she who is only one day into this. LOL).

Your goals sound great. Good luck with all your subs!!

Lexi, you can absolutely do it!! But if you want to set your own goal of 100 x 100 -- then report back to us on how it's going!

I got 1249 words in today. Wanted to get more, but I'm about tapped out.

Tomorrow is another day for another 1000k words.

Blogger Paty Jager said...

Okay. I can't start this week. (I have other priorities) But I'll start next week with the 1000 words a day because I will be starting the third Petticoat book and I plan to smoke that puppy out!

So on Tuesday, September 4th- I'll start the 1000 a day challenge! That's only four pages a day and I can usually crank out 8-10.

Joan, as I was writing my first post I figured one of you would throw out that challenge! So, count me in! Only, like Paty I've got to wait. I'll OFFICIALLY start on Tuesday too!

Oh, and I just thought up ANOTHER new suspense premise to play with even though I haven't written a suspense in over a year and a half!

Blogger Elisabeth Naughton said...

Woohoo, Paty and Lexi!

Okay...challenge is starting for you two next Tuesday. I'm holding you both to it. :)
