100 Day Writing Challenge 2

I, Sanna Ketutar Jensen, commit to writing at least
one hour a day, 2000 words or 8 pages a day on my novel.

At least.

Plus that I also commit to doing my best to reach the 200 dollars a day promise given in the 100 Day Writing Challenge, because I don't have the slightest idea what it might be... all I know at this moment is what I do doesn't work :-D
It is quite possible I'm not a freelance writer, and I don't have what it takes to make money with my writing, but at least I'm going to try. It's just 100 days :-D


(added later)

Now I have read the first post, and I notice that I have misunderstood something.
I think I have misunderstood everything. Well... Better soon than never, huh?


(added a lot later)

Ok, I'm going to do this.

1) to get a novel manuscript in submitting order. I'm aware that 100 days is a bit short time, but more miraculous things have happened. Also, NaNoWriMo happens in the middle of this 100 days chunk of time.

2) I'm damn going to earn $200 a day more than I do now. It's supposed to be possible, so I'll at least give it a try. I don't know how it's going to happen, but... I'm going to make it happen.

I suppose this will help a little:
Are you subbing? Try the race score challenge

Let's get some writing done, then.

I think 2000 words a day or 8 pages is a FABULOUS goal. I usually work with a 1000 word minimum when I am writing something fresh. The EDITING is what kills me--the faster I write something, the more REWRITING I need, for two reasons: 1) if I write FAST, I include some crap just to meet goals (especially in the case of a WriMo) and 2) some clever twists just to ferment befor they are ready. I am on my second month of REWRITE for a cozy mystery right now and just had a brand new twist this morning that will really improve the final outcome--but this is my 3RD time through the book--the second time I added something I liked, but this last twist is what keeps that from not being too much.

Once this is done, I have a DIFFERENT book to edit... so subbing will probably be Janauary (which I hear is a good time for it--September and January are supposed to be the sweet spots)

LOL WriMo...

It's so kind of you to come by every day and actually read what I write :-) You can't imagine how happy it makes me :-) Thank you very much, Hart :-)

January a sweet spot? Good :-) I really hope I'm used to writing, so that I will have something to sub :-D
