My Austin RWA chapter has a goals challenge ever month. You pay $1, write down what your goal is for the next month and if you accomplish it, your name goes into a drawing for the money collected. I did accomplish my goal last month, which was to read at least 2 Love Inspired Suspense stories for research and to write at least 100 words a day. I read 4 LIS books and wrote, as you know, 20,000 new words. (I won last night- $12!)
My goal for the August meeting is to write 45,000 new words. I can split it between Unbroken and I Dare You however I want, but I have to write 45,000 new words before the 2nd Tuesday of August. It's a bit of a challenge but definitely doable...I think. Wish me luck!
