writing goals

I recently took stock of the first half of the year a couple of weeks ago (a little early I know) and set some goals for myself. One goal I set just a week ago before the most recent weekend was to hit the 25,000 word mark on my WIP by the end of this month. Considering I was sitting at 16,000 words and would only have 4 days remaining I wasn't sure I would make it.

Well, it looks like I have a real good shot at it. The words (clumsy first draft words) are flowing better than they have in a long time. While it may have little to do with it, now that we're living back in New York instead of the South, I feel very inspired. I'm writing - at least over the last part of this month - at a pace similar to when I was in my late teens and early twenties.

I'm having fun.

Word meter time:

Hopefully I can keep this pace going.
