Did I beat last week’s total?

Last week I wrote 6,317 words, which means I beat that total by 3,502 words. Woohoo!


No badges this week, although I did finally manage to crack 10K on my NaNoWriMo project before the end of November. Not exactly my finest moment, but I persevered. Hey, it’s 10K more than I had in October, right?

Goals for next week?

This weekend I am finally (seriously) finishing up the very last of my Careers in Digital Media manuscript, and then I am taking a week off to write something for myself. Frankly, I’m a little burned out.

It’s December, which is the time of year when I traditionally like to start evaluating my year, adding up my accomplishments and acknowledging my failures, and trying to figure out how I will map out my new year. I’ve been doing a lot of personal journaling, using the Passion and Purpose Writing Challenge from This Cherished Life, which you might also find useful (and, hooray, it’s free!).

I’ve also been thinking about a new writing challenge I’ve been dreaming up for myself, after a year spent doing other people’s challenges. I’d like to design a year-long challenge for myself that will give me something new to learn, and help get my writing goals on track within a specific genre. I’ll explain more in another post, once I have things a bit more mapped out.

So… what are YOU working on this week?

And have you got any good resources for new year’s goal-setting you’d like to share?
