I seriously needed to write this somewhere public so that other people can hold me accountable to this. I plan to update it whenever I reach a goal. Since I'm currently writing a YA trilogy, with each book aimed at at least 100k words, I worked out how long it would take me to write that much and when I wanted to get it done. 2015 December- 12,500 words book 1 2016 January- 15,000 words February- 14,500 words March- 15,500 words April- 14,500 words May- 15,500 words June- 15,000 words (total: 102,000) July-October- hardcore edit book one November- 50,000 words book 2 December- 15,500 words 2017 January- 15,500 words February- 14,000 words March- 15,500 words (total: 110,500) April-June- hardcore edit book two July- 50,000 words book 3 August- 15,500 words September- 14,500 words October- 15,500 words November- 50,000 (total: 145,500) December-ff- hardcore edit book three So those are my goals. I'd love if I accomplished them early. But, since I've never finished a novel, my goal is just to reach them in a timely way.
