Yet another one of my
very well thought out completely irrational and insane plans is hanging like an albatross around my neck.
One month. 50,000 words. A five day weekend around the corner with the kids and husband home and, like 0 time to work on writing a book.
I’ve written 36,233 words so far. That leaves 13,767 to go. That means I need to write 984 words per day to finish by my ridiculously tight self-inflicted deadline.
Of course, the stated goal here is to finish the manuscript. The goal is not to have it wrapped up in a pretty word package ready for the printing presses. I just need to finish it.
So if you have ever set yourself a completely unrealistic goal, how did you get the job done? I’m reaching out for encouragement here. Help!
