Crazy Goals. . .

Since Wednesday’s are my writing days on the blog, I decided to do a post updating you all on my writing goals. As you may have guess by the title, they are kind of crazy!

So, I have, in my possession, a complete first draft of a novel. As well as a Tween/Teen book that is also finished. Written by me of course!  My goal is to have them both published by the end of September. I know I know, crazy talk right there! LOL! For clarification, that goal is Lord Willing. Who knows what might come my way in the next few months. I have a deadline, but life and family take precedence. So that being said, I have a lot to do in preparation and I am slightly overwhelmed, seeing as how my novel needs to be rewritten to a certain extent. A certain somebody in the story needs some fleshing out as well. Last week, I laid out all of my resources and about hyperventilated!

So in this picture I had all three notebooks that have the handwritten first draft, as well as all of the plotting and outline. Then I had my printed copy of the book with all the notes I had made previously to editing or revising. I then have a copy that I gave a friend full of notes she made as well as several sheets of paper full of notes. Then a to do list!

In this picture, I have everything I had in my lap. Notebooks, pens, the rough draft and things to write on.

Here is me writing away on a piece I have to insert into the novel. This thing is currently just over 69,000 words! I am still so in awe of it all. I never thought I was capable of this. I can’t wait to release it to the world and all of you, but before then, I have a lot of work to do.

If you think of it, I would be greatly appreciative if you would pray for me that I would have clarity of mind, wisdom and guidance during this extensive process and that what God wants to be in the book would be in the book. Also, I want others to be blessed by this story.

This journey has been so amazing and I can’t wait to see the finished work in my hands! This is one of my encouraging quotes that I have pasted on my wall nearby where I write.

I believe that I can do this with God’s help, and I am so determined to polish this baby to perfection.

 

Do you have any goals that seem crazy?

By God’s Grace,

Victoria

  1. I don’t think it’s a crazy goal at all—simply because I have faith that you can do it and because you want to do it with God’s help and guidance! Never underestimate what He can do through you, girl. And by the way, it’s amazing to see how far He has brought you in your writing style–it literally is just becoming better and better and more polished and professional. Praying for you! tess
