Last Friday we all shared our weekend writing goals. When I posted my goal for all of you to see, I was really motivated all weekend to meet my word count! Knowing I had to report my progress to everyone, kept me going when normally I might have quit.
So, if you want us to keep you accountable for your weekend writing goals, post your goals in the comments. Then on Monday, we'll check with you to see how you did. (Update: For those who take the weekend off, let us know your writing goal for next week. Then next Friday we'll ask you how you did.)
This might encourage you to come up with a tangible goal for yourself: write a certain number of words, edit a chapter, write a short story, get a contest entry in. Set a realistic goal and let us know what it is so that we can help hold you to it!
My goal again for this weekend is to write 1500 words on my WIP.
Since I'm in the middle of my WIP, I'll leave you with a weekend writing tip for MIDDLES:
Think of the middle as a series of increasingly intense battles. Worrying the reader is the primary goal of the middle and we can do this by stretching the tension and raising the stakes. If the situation can be made worse, then so much the better. (From James Scott Bell's Plot and Structure.)
P.S. Eileen, did you meet your writing goal of 5ooo words this week? (Update: Eileen wrote 1500 words today and met her week's goal! Great job!)
