I'm doing pretty well so far. I'm writing a mystery set in a Catholic school, and my writing goal (besides finishing the novel) is to get better at giving my main character a life outside of the main plot.

Edit: I'm starting at 3pm my time and ending at 2:59 p.m. on November 30. I even set my time zone to that time.

Edit again: I just realized my schedule, according to my note cards is bizarre. So here it is:

Week 1: 3:00pm October 31 until 2:59pm November 6.
Work days:
October 31 - 3,000 words, 1 note card.
November 1 - 3,000 words, 1 note card.
November 2 - 3,000 words, 1 note card.
November 3 - 3,000 words, 1 note card.
November 4 - 3,000 words, 1 note card.
Days off for catch up: end of November 4 until middle of November 6.

Total due by end of Week 1: 15,000 words, 5 note cards.


Week 2: 3:00pm November 6 until 2:59pm November 13
November 6 - 2,000 words, 1 note card.

November 10 - 2,000 words, 1 note card.

November 12 - Off or catch up.

Total due by end of Week 2: 25,000 words, 10 note cards.
