Goals, Goals, Goals

I am not a goal-oriented person. Never have been. Shocked? Most people are. Apparently being a scientist is synonamous with anal retentive, schedule slave. No, those are engineers ()
Still, you can’t be a writer on this planet and not be aware of the power of goals. (Toss magic glitter into air here). OOOOhh, I like magic so I decided to give it a try. Let’s just March didn’t turn out like it was supposed to. In April, I decided to try again, wrote one chapter then decided to switch books. I’m not sure where May went… But I managed to write fifty pages at the end of it.
June, I vowed would be different. 5 pages a day for the entire month. That would get me in the groove of writing again, keep the story fresh in my mind and wham, I’d be halfway through the manuscript by July 1st.
On the 27th, I was on page 158. That’s 42 pages short of my monthly goal. Looking back (cuz I can analyze without being anal) I realized I didn’t make the most of my time.
Ya think?
I kinda took the weekends off from writing, leaving me a deficit to work off starting Monday. (wiping tear from my eye at the flood of college memories)
But I digress.
With one day to go, I am currently only a 15 pages short of my monthly goal. Tonight it will be even less. I’d like to say it’s the magic and satisfaction of having achieved my goals, but that would be a lie. I think it’s the thrill of knowing that I’m about to unleash a boatload of pandemonium and horror upon my characters in my Apocalyptic novel.
Go Me!
