End of #Writemotivation

01 Apr

So, March is over. #Writemotivation goal check month is over. In conclusion, I failed miserably at my goals:

Goal #1: Finish “The Woodsman” rough draft.
-I did this one! This was the only one I accomplished, although the rough draft is awful, and half of it will probably be rewritten. But, this was done!

Goal #2 [Deleted in Goal Revision]: Write 32,000 words in Tal’kan.
-Yeah… This didn’t succeed at all. I wrote a little over 3,000 words, and then shelved this project for a while until I got inspiration back. So, didn’t do so well here.

Goal #3 [Added in Goal Revision]: Write 3 Chapters in Beneath.
-I wrote one and 4/5 chapters, which is better than nothing, but still not a success.

So, what did I learn? Set better goals next time! I underestimated the amount of university and other work I would have to do during March, and didn’t handle the time management as well as I could have, and so fell short. Oh well! I will certainly be trying this again in May, and I hope I’ll have much better luck then, when I’m out of university for a little bit!

    Awesome progression! So glad to have you on our cheer squad! 🙂
    One word=progression
    Zero words=stagnation
    Deleting words=regression

    You’ve done far better than you realize!

    Progress is still progress! It’s easy to get down when we don’t meet our goals, but we have to realize that most of us it seems like to set goals above and beyond what we can actually accomplish (and still maintain a minute amount of sanity). You did great!
