Writing goals for 2010

Finish Sacrifice! Yep, that’s basically it for this year. I want to get Sacrifice into a suitable state for sending to agents and I want to do that by the end of August.

I’m going to aim for 2000 words a week and that should get me to 75000 words by the end of March, which I think is about right for this novel. That then gives me about four months to finish the editing. Given that the 40000 words I already have been edited a bit, I think four months is a challenging but achievable goal.

I’ve got a calendar of inspirational quotes for the year and I’ll share the ones that I like the most. Today’s was from Dara Torres, a US olympic swimmer:

“You don’t have to put an age limit on your dreams.”

  1. "You don't have to put an age limit on your dreams." I like this quote, but I think `Impatience` may have a thing or two to say about it. Good luck with your goal. How exciting! Looks like 2010 is the year for major progress…

  2. Hee. Impatience is a virtue of mine as well. Major progress for 2010, yes, whilst recognising the progress I made this year. It is somewhat less tangible, but I've become a better writer as a result of the work I did in 2009.
