I’ve been working at my Day Job non stop this entire week, and I’ve got doubles all weekend so I’ve got even less time than usual to write and read.
Sometimes, I have to wonder, when does my Day Job stop becoming just that? A day job is meant to be a supplementary place of income, something to get me by in the winter months. But I’m practically working over time—of course, the summer is the peak of BBQ season so of course I’m working plenty—and it’s leaving me more drained and less likely to want to get my writing done.
But I’m coming on 30k in this draft of my YA Fantasy and I’m nearly at the end of Act 1. Someone’s about to get kidnapped! I’m excited.
It’s been a lot of fun getting back into this manuscript. Every time I take a break from the story and the world and instead focus my writing on a different project, this world is just sort of sitting at the back of my head. It’s always so tempting to go back to it, even if I know I need to take time off from it.
So this weekend I’m hoping to hit 35k and get as close to the end of Act 1 as I can.
What are your weekend writing goals?
One thought on “Weekend Writing Goals”
I hope you reached your goal! I feel the exact same about the whole ‘day job’ situation. It does tend to take over, but hopefully when you have a bit more time off all of that time spent away from your work will mean new ideas have had time to develop 🙂
