Our assignment for this week was two fold: work on a scene chart and give our weekly word count goal for the rest of the semester. I’ve been thinking long and hard about mine. I would love to push out five or ten thousand words a week, but with my job requiring a fair bit of my energy and effort, I think something around fifteen hundred words, or three, half an hour, sit-down sessions of five hundred words would be ideal. This will mean that over the next seven weeks, not-including the writing required for any other assignments, I should be able to push out 10,500 words towards my novel. An achievable goal that is not too easy or too difficult given my current work load, but definitely less than I would ideally do if I had a more sane, nine to five job.
