And, with absolutely perfect timing, Swimmer started a Page a Day in May challenge. I'm totally going up and you should too!
I have a goal to write 20,000 words this month. I think a page a day would totally do that for me. Just FYI, I type in 11pt Optima font with 1.1 line spacing and a ½ inch indent on each paragraph.
I got the opening for my WIP written. It's pretty rocky but the point is to write it, not have it perfect. I probably would have had at least 300 more words if I didn't edit while I write. I really need to work on not doing that.
I believe my goal for this week will be to write 700 new words (which is about a page) everyday on my WIP without stopping. Then, the next day, spend about30 mins slightly editing what I wrote the previous day and use that as a little warm up. Then we'll see how that goes, if it works, I'll continue with it.
Lets get going with a page a day!
