April 2018 Writing Goals

Well, it's been three months since I first started working toward my writing goals. Things are still going a bit slow, with work and life pressures going on. As before, some work is better than nothing, which is close to where I had been last year.

So, here are the results for March:

1. Complete 6,000 words on Before the Dawn. Didn't even start this one.

2. Complete 5,000 words on the new Aston West "Toll Road". Was able to complete this goal, with just over 5,000 words. Getting close to finishing this story up.

3. Complete 6,000 words on my "Demonkiller" WIP. Didn't even start this one.

4. Complete 6,000 words on my sci-fi suspense/mystery novel. Didn't start this one either.

5. Write 2,500 words on a new Aston West short story. Didn't start this one, though I have thought up a few paths I want to go. Been struggling in coming up with new material.

6. Complete the first draft of "Runaway" with Lyndon Perry. Haven't started this one either.

Here are my goals for the month of April:

1. Complete 3,000 words on Before the Dawn. This will require 750 words per week, or a little over 250 words per day, writing three days per week.

2. Complete the new Aston West novella "Toll Road" (still need to determine if I want a new title for this, now that it's in novella territory).

3. Complete 3,000 words on my "Demonkiller" WIP. This comes up to 750 words per week, or 250 words per day if I write three days per week.

4. Complete 3,000 words on my sci-fi suspense/mystery novel. This will require 750 words per week, or 250 words per day if I write three days per week.

5. Write 2,500 words on a new Aston West short story (other than "Toll Road"). This will require 625 words per week, which should be able to be completed in a single day.

Hoping I can get to a few more of these, especially with reduced word counts.
