Oh Hey Goals
I've been keeping up on this! Amazingly. Although I do have to reconstruct the score for my journal entries regularly (I forget to count them), I've been tallying the score for A Rational Arrangement every few days.
Score 30,000 Points
As with my last update, I am lagging on this one. I'm at 15,753 points so far for the year, averaging just over 71 points a day. I am almost 2500 points behind. At this rate I will miss goal by 4000 points!
Or I will finish A Rational Arrangement and get a 20,000 point completion bonus for goal-crushing victory. WHICH WILL IT BE?
I am on track to finish A Rational Arrangement this year. I think it's more than halfway through. At 108,000 words. x_x Someday I am going to write a story that falls between 60 and 100k and then I am going to pass out from sheer amazement. Maybe I will try not serializing my next effort. Perhaps that would help. ANYWAY, I won't know for sure that I'm going to finish it until I actually, y'know. Do.
Write more fiction
Goal was "at least 2/3rds of points from fiction". About 3/4ths of my writing for the year has been A Rational Arrangement. I am well over the two-thirds mark, even without the big completion bonuses.
Post the occasional update
Look, an update! This is my second for the year. Perhaps I will even do four total as originally planned.
