I've decided that I'm a secret math geek. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
If I write 2K words a day I could be done both wolf stories and the next cowboy story in 42 days.
If I wrote 5K a day like some of the full time writers do, I could be done all three first drafts in 17 days.
Of course, I'd be totally numb at that point, but the thought of it is fun. ;)
2K is do-able for me on some days. 5 only when my family doesn't mind eating take out, wearing dirty clothes and marking their own schoolwork. It also means I can't be doing edits on other things, writing synopsis or doing a lot of promotion, all things that take time themselves.
Bottom line, I'll get done as much as I can when I can, and try to keep enjoying the journey.
P.s. I love edits...in spite of the picture. But they do take time!
