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.
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!!!).
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?

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!

Girl, you are unstoppable. Just reading your schedule makes me tired! Good luck!
Thanks Jess! So far, so good…jogging this morning really helped to clear my head. How have you been? 🙂

I second Jess–I’m exhausted reading that! You’re going to rock it, I know 🙂
I also have a writing schedule this month 🙂 Good luck with your revisions!
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!!!
