Every year I assign myself various goals.
Recently I’ve completed two of them… finishing my third novel and writing 300 000 words for the year. The latter occurred sometime yesterday.
I knew I would not be as productive this year (the kids are home with me more now) as last but I still wanted to aim for a reasonable production schedule, so I’m pleased. Next year I’ll likely drop my goal to 250 000 words because I plan to complete a couple game projects I’ve been tinkering on in my spare time. I’ll make the final decision at year’s end when I plan next year’s goals.
