I am happy that we made it through our busy day and I am even more pleased that it has left me feeling calm and ready to write. So often I feel drained at the end of the day. It is so hard to be motivated when your body and brain are screaming for sleep. When I lack motivation I end up going to bed without accomplishing the extra things I want to do, primarily my writing. I have made a few goals that I hope are attainable and won't leave me feeling like I'm failing.
My writing goals for February are:
- to map out my plot and characters for the YA novel I am working on (I thought I was a panster but I am very much not...)
- write 500 words a day (whether that be on my current novel or a short story for a magazine)
- finally, to blog about it or the random things that happen while I am working on it.
