Word Nerd Scribbles 2019 Writing Goals

It feels like I just did this for 2018. That year flew by in a blink. So here we are, ready for writing in 2019 here at Word Nerd Scribbles!

Goals

Write 300 words a day. That’s it. I get to choose whatever project I feel like tinkering with for those 300 words and if I happen to write more than that minimum, who can possibly stop me? Muahahaha!

This may seem like a weak word count goal. Maybe it kind of is, but that’s because it’s undaunting. If I give myself too difficult a target, I just won’t do it (see the dictionary definition for Perfectionist), because I have so, so much going on in my life every single week that I’m lucky to find the time to write at all. Most of this will be written at work in between phone calls anyway.

Projects

  • The Hopeful Wanderer – a collection of a year’s worth of the Wanderer short-stories posted here as well as longer, unreleased pieces, all crammed together into one novella. ~32,400 words
  • The Porcelain Phylactery – a horror novella involving a porcelain doll and a body-switched lich. ~40,000 words
  • Of Coffins and Graves – a fantasy-horror novel that has been my baby project for multiple years now. ~100,000 words

These are the projects I will be picking from. There may (read ‘will’) be other times when I write shorts for the various tabletop games I play because I’m my boss and I get to do what I want sometimes.

  1. Well done for meeting your goals! I think having word count goals which don’t stress you out is a good thing 🙂 300 words seems fine to me! I’m the same, I like to set achievable goals so I can feel good when I exceed them 🙂 great wrap up 🙂
