I have a nifty spreadsheet that tells me when I'm on target or if I'm horribly off-schedule. (It's the latter right now for me.) I am 24.287 words BEHIND schedule. That's scary, honestly. Instead of holing myself up for two days, neglecting all my responsibilities, and writing, I decided to just catch up by the end of this month. Unfortunately, it's not a leap year, so I have 28 days to work with. Actually, I have 24 days left to work with. The spreadsheet tells me I should have 60,000 words by the end of this month (PANIC!) and I'm nearly 25,000 words behind already. That means, I have to write something like 48,000-someodd words to write this month. I rounded it to 50,000 words because I like easy-to-remember numbers.

Essentially, I'm playing NaNoWriMo in February. And that doesn't include the manuscripts I need to edit for clients. Or taking care of my kids, the house, my out-of-home work, or the number of other projects I have.

So, I just need to take this thing one day at a time.

Daily, what I need to accomplish is:
  • 2,000 words written for my current WIP.
  • 20 pages edited for client manuscript - SS.
Weekly tasks include:
  • Reading 2-3 books and writing reviews on Goodreads.
  • 3 blog posts - one each for the author, editor, and spiritual blogs.
  • Doing one thing for another online venture (spiritual/homeschool/writer courses).

That's not too bad, right? Totally manageable...

I guess we'll see. :)
