My writing schedule or how to make sure I’m ready for PITCH WARS

Ready. Set. Write! over the summer really helped me get into a writing schedule and I think I need to implement another one to finish this revision.

My goal?

Enter my manuscript into PITCH WARS, which means I have until the end of November to polish it. Last year, I was an alternate in PITCH WARS (with the extraordinary Dahlia) and I learned so much. Plus I met many wonderful writers (read amazing manuscripts!!!).

Submission window is on 12/2

And it’s the perfect contest for GUILTY (or DADDY’s LITTLE ANGEL, I’m still unsure about the title) since I haven’t queried it yet.

To make this happen, I need to sit my butt on the chair (while keeping a balance and not growing a saggy middle–in my manuscript :P)

  • Monday mornings: revise from 5am to 6.15am
  • Tuesday mornings: Jog from 5am to 5.30am – revise in the train to work
  • Wednesday mornings: revise from 5am to 6.15am
  • Thursday mornings: workout from 5am to 5.30am – revise in the train to work
  • Friday mornings: revise from 5am to 6.15am

During the weekends: revise at least an hour on Saturday and an hour on Sunday.

I am allowed to take one day off from waking up early but need to jog at least once a week. With this schedule, I should be able to finish this revision round by November 12th.

November 12th. This should be feasible, no?

Tell me, do you have a writing schedule?

  1. Elodie! Let me know if you need a reader as you prepare! You know where to find me. :-)

  2. Sounds totally doable, Elodie! I’ll be doing lots of writing/revising in the coming months too, so if you need a buddy, let me know. Best of luck!

    • Thanks Katy :-) I will definitely be in need of some support as I dwell deeper into my revision.And right back at you, if you need any help or just a revision/writing buddy, let me know!

    • Thanks Jess! So far, so good…jogging this morning really helped to clear my head. How have you been? :-)

  3. I love this! I have a similar plan going on in my mind (not for PITCH WARS though – I know mine won’t be ready for that), but I do need to actually put the head plan to paper. I like yours! And totally doable. Go, ELODIE!!!
