This last week went better than the previous week from a writing standpoint. It was not a fantastic week by most standards, and I wasn’t as consistent as I wanted to be, but it was up above the pace I needed to get to.
As it turns out, I already am halfway to that goal even before June is done, which means I am ahead of pace for the year. Despite this, I feel like my attempt to get to 200,000 is a bit of a cramp on my other plans, such as to move forward on research and backwork for future projects. When I consider that, I might look at doing a more modest word count for next year while trying to keep up or improving my percentage of meeting daily goals.
Some things that I am trying to work on now would include doing more research on Substack and how to get the Amazon KDP publishing. I have already published stuff on Amazon through a conventional publisher and now I am looking into self-publishing because I think that would work best for me at this stage, considering that my main goal is to put out as much material as I can in whatever time I have left. (Those are the types of thoughts that start running through your mind a bit more the further you get on in life.)
So, those are some things to start thinking about for both this year and next. as well. I feel good that I had a generally good week and hoping that the last week will finish strong and put me in a good position for the second half of the year. I will likely make the writing journal for next Wednesday double as the first half of 2022 recap as well.
Until next time.
