2011 got off to a great start for me. I’ve heard this is pretty common, as people are still motivated and goals are still fresh. All I want is to keep some momentum. I won’t hit these numbers every month, but it’s a nice place to start. At least I know I can do it.
Get Your Words Out- I clocked in at 30, 534 words for January. Huzzah! I think the goal of 1,000 words per day was really helpful, as was having some shorts to focus on, and a few challenges over at GYWO to pull my head out of AIWD and give me a little break. I’m still writing the last chapter. Maybe two. Slow going.
Goodreads Reading Challenge– I’m set to read 50 books in 2011, of which I have read 10. I think I’ve only reviewed 9… the 10th was a writing book and it was really short and I just didn’t feel like reviewing it. I counted it, though. One of my books per month will be a book on writing, and at least 2 books have to be physical, printed on paper books. I sort of failed on that in January. The books just didn’t show up in time, so in February I’ll be reading Slammerkin and… maybe You Know When The Men Are Gone.
