Knuckling Down & Personal Goals

Also known as "The Angst of Book 2" or the "I-have-to-do-this-all-over-again?"
As you can probably tell by my woeful word count on Damion & Reiko's book, I didn't reach the expected target of 27.5k by 30 April. In fact I fell far, far short. Eeeeeep!

Since I don't want to be a one-book wonder, I guess I need to get my butt in gear.

This week hasn't been too bad. Despite being bone tired almost every single night and with DS's 7th birthday celebrations thrown in, I've managed to get a few thousand words done. The book is shaping up nicely and I'm really excited about where I'm going with this one!

But, no more excuses, especially since we have a long weekend in the UK this week, plus I've set a personal deadline for subbing the partial to my editor, so I need to get a move on.

Here's where I need your help, blogger friends. I'll be disappointed with myself if I don't meet my 15 May deadline, so if you see me lurking about too long on Twitter (come on, a girl needs her tweeps!) or posting pictures of hunky hunks on Pinterest, feel free to kick my ass!

Have you set yourself any personal goals this month? Or waiting on sub? Either way, I wish you the best of luck. And if all else, we can always...

Have a fabulous long weekend!!

  1. I have my whip out,Maya ;-) get that partial done!!

    Jokes aside, I think the reason you didn't reach the goal is the best, Maya....And I am sure you will blast through the doubts...

  2. Don't doubt you'll hit your target by 15th May.

    Belated Happy Birthday to your DS.


  3. Lol, thanks Sri! I seem to be settling into the story (at last) so I'm hoping you won't need your whip, heh!
