Week 1

Alas, the whole book writing plan pretty well nixed the National Poetry Month posting a poem every day project.  I did work on my own poetry manuscript this week in addition to the new writing project, at least!

So the first week went by, and I met both my word count and time goals every day.  So that’s, what, 2169 words, about eight manuscript pages?  It’s a little hard to estimate because some of what I wrote sucked and I rewrote it away the next day, and I really only worked on segments, so there are two sections of complete draft, but also a lot of little place-marker chunks about what I want to do.  I’m not generally good at rigidly defined goals (do something every day???), so that’s a good first start.  My writing accountability guru is all about treats.  Wonder what my treat should be??
