2018 Shooting-for-the-Stars Goal
Write 1mil words in a year.
Word count comes from 3 categories…
- Self Published 1st Draft—first-draft chapters or articles on WordPress, Wattpad, or Medium.
- Self Published Final Draft—Final drafts on Etsy and Amazon count for 50% value.* (On transferring Wattpad stories to self-published e-books on Amazon.)
- Zine Published—online or paper zines count for 200% value because they’re cool.
*If a story takes me a hundred hours to write, it takes me fifty hours to edit, so I value “edited words” at 50% the rate of “produced words.”
