Made it!

Filed under: Uncategorized — chapterhouse @ 10:57 am

The NILTOY goal for January (due today) is 10,000 words. I’m up to 10,867!
The timetable is 2,500 words a week (10,000 per month.) So, you’ll have the first draft of a 100-000 word novel in October.

I wasn’t sure at first if this would actually work for me, but it has. It’s a good thing. Thanks to Pooks for finding it!


In other news, someone made an offer on Maxwell House. They had until 5PM today to respond to our counter-offer. This morning they want a little more time. Of course they did. Sigh.



  1. Go, Maxwell, go!! North Carolina is getting a little long in the tooth.

  3. Glad this program is working out for you. I barely have the time to write because I’m always working, and it sucks.

  4. Well, of COURSE you made it! A goal-oriented detail person like you?

    And of COURSE they wanted more time. That’s just the way it works. And I’ll bet you agreed to give them more time, right? Why not? Hope you all came to agreeable terms.
