At least for me, there are many milestones while writing a book. For example: each completed page is a milestone. One page written is one less you need to write before completion. You could even say each day you sit in front of the computer is a new milestone.
I keep track of the hours I work each day and the number of pages I write. This way I can see (quantitatively) how much I’ve written. I feel it’s a great boost to see my daily numbers. Even if I’ve only spent 30 minutes and written half a page, it’s 30 minutes I’ve been able to enjoy writing and I have about 200 words to show for it. This is my reward, my milestone.
But this is a big milestone for me. One that definitely deserves attention:
I’m officially half-way done with my novel, Jac and the City of 1,000 Worlds.
I think that’s pretty cool.
I was planning on writing on a new topic this week, but I felt this was something to stand up and cheer about.
