IWSG - What I'm Doing for the Rest of 2014


Over the summer, I attempted to write a piece of flash fiction each week, but I didn’t entirely succeed. I cheated a bit, and when I did not have something new, I posted an old flash fiction piece on that day. I do feel slightly guilty about that…

However, I am vowing to write regularly for the rest of the year, with the goal of finishing the first draft of a book by the end of December 2014. The projected word count is 120,000 words, which is obviously too long for a novel, but it’s a draft, so that’s okay. I’m sure the story will change a bit as I write and see how things work out concretized rather than in its current outline form. I already have about 30,000 words written, so I will have to write approximately 90,000 words (projected, according to my outline, of course) in the next four months. This will be the most I’ve ever written within a set time period before in my life, so I am bit frightened… But I will keep you updated in my Insecure Writer Support Group posts!

Thanks for reading and wishing me luck!

  1. I used flash fiction as a way to get back into writing. I had a goal of 25, which I reached, but only 18 have made it to the next draft stage. I'm trying to write more, to bump the total back up to 25, and I'm really struggling. Good luck with the novel :-)

  2. Absolutely good luck! I think it's cool that you're being brave and taking on a commitment to write. That's not always easy - brava! :)
