New Year is all about resolutions.
Well, maybe. In truth, there’s nothing special about New Year. You can decide to change things any time you like, but most people don’t. I guess it’s kind of a feeling that we’re all in it together if we decide to change something on 1 January.
Well, I am going to change something. I am going to try to post here regularly. I’m not going to commit to more than one post a week – let’s not be rash about this – but I am going to post, every Monday, a summary of my writing progress for the past week.
You’ll see that I now have some lovely progress meters on the left-hand side of the page. And you’ll also have deduced from those, that I currently have three projects on the go. The progress meters only chart the number of words, of course, not everything else that goes into having a finished product. This particular meter is one that’s meant for NaNoWriMo, but can be adapted to your own requirements. You can find it here if you’d like to use if yourself.
In addition to the progress meters, I intend to post details of how many words I write per day, and on which project. I’ve also decided to tally up how many hours I read each day (because I consider that to be part of writing), but I haven’t done that for the first week, so that will be missing from tomorrow’s post.
In addition to these projects, I also wrote a Drabble for a competition about New Year’s Resolutions. You can find it here. The competition is open until the end of the month, so if you want to enter, you can do so by using the competition link at the top of the page. You will have to log in to the site to do so, which you will also have to do if you want to vote for my story. Drabbles are exactly one hundred words, by the way, and the submission form does count them!
So, my first progress report will be posted tomorrow. See you then.
