Book 3 - self-imposed deadlines

Book 3 is coming along nicely. I'm still very much at the beginning but I'm enjoying writing and look forward to open up the document, which is always a good thing. I've given myself a deadline of Christmas to write the first draft, which gives me another 9ish weeks. There is no real need to set a time limit and it doesn't really matter if I don't complete the first draft by Christmas (or Easter, in fact) but I find setting myself goals spurs me on.

So there, I've said it in front of everyone so I have to get on with it now.

Do you set yourself deadlines or goals? Or do you go with the flow?


  1. Good luck getting it finished! :D

    I'm not much of a deadline setter, I find it can sometimes stress me out more than anything lol!

    1. I think if someone else had set me a deadline, I'd be stressed! But I know it's only something I'm aiming towards and there are no consequences if I don't meet it.
