This week I'm celebrating:
1) After six months, I finally managed to hit 55k on my WIP!
2) Yesterday, I outlined the climax to the end. I thought it would be about 10 chapters, and it came out to 11, so that's on target.
3) I'm determined to get these 11 chapters -- probably 25k -- done by the end of the month. However, I reached the 55k mark in June by:
Giving up all TV,
Halving my time on social media,
Letting the house go to wreck & ruin,
Aaaaaaand instead of visiting every single blog hop member, I cut it to half. Last week I only visited the first half of the linky-list, this week, I'll only do the 2nd half, and so on until the end of the month. I hope you understand. (I'll still return-visit all blog comments.)
What things have you had to give up to find time for a WIP or other project?
My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
