Between the Lines: This Writer's Journal

Writing Marathon

As my printer prompted me to refill the paper-tray several times, I reflected on how much has been accomplished after completing the rough draft of my sequel. Yet, I noted several bracketed comments reminding me how much work has yet to be done.  I am inspired as I prepare for another writing marathon that starts tomorrow and runs for seven days. This time I will be focusing on revising, though I anticipate I will be doing plenty of writing as well.

If you would like to join me this week, here is the format:

  • Half marathon- 1k words a day (or edit 2 chapters)
  • Marathon- 3k words a day (or edit 5 chapters)
  • Triathlon- 5k words a day (or edit 7 chapters)

I would love to complete a triathlon this week, but I am thinking that a half marathon is the better choice. I happen to have appointments every day this week, so there will be a lot of pit stops between tomorrow’s start and the finish line. The best thing on weeks like this one is to set achievable goals and not to be discouraged. Writing is so much about doing a little bit every day.

Happy writing to all!
