Randy Ingermanson says to be classified as a Junior writer you need to be writing 10 hours or more a week. At the most I write five hours a week. I’m working on stepping that up.
I’m currently working with a freelance editor and my goal is to have the editing of my manuscript completed by December 16th, which means I need to work on my writing time in order to do that.
I have 368 pages to edit. I decided to break the editing up by a daily count.
I have 50 days to edit which will break the pages down to 8 pages a day. I write five days a week which will be 40 pages a week.
That’s not too bad. I started on Monday and I edited 38 pages. Not bad.
It takes a commitment to write. I’ve made a commitment to my editor and posting this blog today, I’m making a commitment to myself.
I’ll keep you posted on how the goal is going.
What are your writing goals for the rest of the year?
