New goal for June.

Okay. We've decided that we're going to be doing a mini-NaNo during June, to practice for July's official summer camp program, and I've decided to shoot for 15,000 words total. That's exactly 500 words a day. I've noticed that writing daily, when I get into a scene I like I tend to stop naturally between five and six hundred words, so if I'm a little over or under (though hopefully not EVER under, right? EVER), it should even out. I know I've tried setting writing goals and whatnot before on this blog, and I haven't succeeded to date - life keeps getting in the way, or I keep letting it, or something. But this is one isolated 30-day block, and I'm going to do it. That's really about it. It takes less than an hour a day to write that much, and I'm going to do it.

I even made myself a rough little calendar - nothing polished and official-looking, just a tool to keep in my binder. If I make it to 500, I get to circle 'Y'. If I don't, I have to circle 'N'. Then I'll put my word count below, so I can get my totals on the 30th. Fun, right?

Yes. Fun.

Edit: You know, I think it's something about how my work computer runs scripts that I'm not allowed to put images anywhere other than at the top of posts. Very annoying.
