Tweaking the Goals
With all the extra activities I have going on right now, my ROW80 goal of 1750 words a day is completely unrealistic. I have crossed the 21,000 word mark, which is nothing to sneeze at, but the next three weeks are going to be unusually busy with two more piano recitals and some out of town travel. Not only that, the unpublished Maggie deadline is right around the corner, so I need to get my first 35 pages polished to a high sheen and ready to submit. So for the next three weeks, I intend to revise a minimum of two pages a day in addition to preparing my contest submission. The biggest challenge I am having there is coming up with a strong opening hook; I just can't seem to get that first sentence right. Anyway, wish me luck!
