    Writing goal plans?

    Discussion in 'Progress Journals' started by MoonlitMasquerade, Mar 16, 2010.

    Okay, I'm not sure if I'm super weird for doing this, but I thought I needed to start doing it in order to get a move on with my writing. I stopped writing a few months back because I was busy and just wasn't making time for my writing. So I decided to MAKE time to write if I'm wanting to be a writer.

    And of course, I am. So I felt this needed to be done.

    This is what my weekly writing goal plan thing looks like for right now. I may add to it later and what not, but this is how it looks right now:

    My goal for this week (03.15.10-03.21.10) is to at least write 500 words a day. This is a total of 3,500 words that should be written this week.

    Monday, 03.15.10: (Should be at 638 words today.)
    Words started off with: Started off with 138 words.
    Words ended with: 651
    Did you meet your goals for today? Yes. :)

    Tuesday, 03.16.10: (Should be at 1,138 words today.)
    Words started off with:
    Started off with 651 (I need at least up to 1,151 words)
    Words ended with:
    Did you meet your goals for today?

    Wednesday, 03.17.10: (Should be at 1,638 words today.)
    Words started off with:
    Words ended with:

    Thursday, 03.18.10: (Should be at 2,138 words today.)
    Words started off with:

    Friday, 03.19.10: (Should be at 2,638 words today.)
    Words started off with:

    Saturday, 03.20.10: (Should be at 3,138 words today.)
    Words started off with:

    Sunday, 03.21.10: (Should be at 3,638 words today.)

    Total Words (Goal): 3,500
    Total words should be at:

    But yeah, anyway. I just started this novel, so it's not much. I've been having issues with the beginning and I still don't know what I fully want to do with the novel. =/ Haven't been able to make a proper outline.

    Does anyone else think it's a good idea to make a writing plan? Anyone else have their own writing plane?
    Any comments on it would be lovely. :)

    I for one think that it's a great idea, I'm not so organised myself, but if it works for you, then great!

    I would only say that if on a particular day you are feeling a bit 'off' and don't fulfil your planned quota, it shouldn't distract you too much. Some days I'm grateful I've written anything at all!

    The funny thing is that I always used to write detailed plans, but then when I finally just sat down to write, then it worked- more often than before

    i've never needed any plan... my only problem is stopping, not starting... would write 24/7, if i didn't need to sleep or eat...

    but whatever works for you is certainly ok...

    I love the layout. It is helpful to me, as I am considering a similar motivating factor. :)
