Writing Goals for The 14th Mansion

By using firm goals, last year I wrote Ghilan in under 90 days, and this year I intend to write “The 14th Mansion” (the sequel) in the same length of time.  I’ve been outlining and writing snippets for about a month and I have 7,500 words as a starting point.  The goal is to finish by 5/15/13, spend a few weeks editing, allow a few weeks for formatting and cover production, and release on 7/1/13.

Here’s where I am, in terms of total words, so far.

Hey, fellow authors!  Open up a spreadsheet somewhere or start/maintain a journal, log your daily totals, and keep track.  Trust me, it works.  A solid baseline is 1,000 words per day.

Thanks to setting firm goals, I now know that 370 people have downloaded by books, and that 370 more readers than I had before I started.
