Crazy videos; writing goals

First, this song has been stuck in my head for a week, and I see no reason why I should have to face that alone. "Captain Kirk is climbing a mountain, why is he climbing a mountain?"

Okay, now that's out of the way. Time to talk January writing goals. With a chart! Yay, charts.

Because I'm started counting substantial journal entries and certain kinds of writing for work toward the wordcount goal, I consider a "writing day" to be a day I've worked on fic. This means that a day spent editing can count, even if I don't get any net words out of it. But if I only write an LJ entry, and/or do substantial writing for work, it doesn't count as a writing day.

Days written: 26/31
Words written: 15,831
Words of fic written: 8,609
Stories worked on: 5
Stories posted: 1

I didn't have any specific goals this month besides writing as many days as possible, and I think I did okay with that. I do wish I had published more; on the other hand, I did get two stories into beta, including the next chapter of "Aftermath"! Which is probably the most exciting thing that could have happened this month. I'm a little behind the pace for getyourwordsout, but not by very much, less than a thousand words. A few good days could catch me up.

On the other hand, February is not getting off to a great start -- only two days in, and I've already missed one. That's the danger with sending stories to beta: I find myself waiting instead of writing. So I need to train myself not to do that. It's not like I don't have other projects to work on! That said, let's have some goals.

1. Write at least six days per week.

2. Finish and post at least two stories from the Alphabet Fic Meme.

3. Make substantial progress on Chapter 5 of "Aftermath".

4. Write at least one story for either ff_fortnightly or halfamoon.

Ambitious, but doable. At least, I hope it's doable...
