I don't know when I last set a real goal that I kept. I'll probably fall flat on this one too, but here goes.

Here is my exceedingly irreverent writing goal. Maybe even blasphemous? Somehow I doubt most churches would smile at a writer using Lent to write a sexy romance. >:)

I want Claire and Helmut's story finished by Easter. Its a fairly reasonable goal. Lent lasts 46 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday (40 if you don't count Sundays). I have about 25,000 words to write between now and April 4th. That's an average of 543 a day. Way less than my NaNo pace.

Actually, my NaNo writing pace is usually around 1000 words an hour, so that works out to 25 hours of writing, or about 4 hours a week. That won't count RWA meetings, or crit group, or (heaven forbid) editing (which I probably need).

Think I can do it?
