I discovered my math was a bit off for my novel. I only need to keep a pace of about 350 words a day to get to the length I want. I audibly sighed in relief when I figured this out.
When I created my spreadsheet with weekly goals I noticed it was adding up way too fast and then realized “Doh! I forgot to subtract the 35,000 words I’ve already written!” Then I realized I’d also divided by too few days. That’ll teach me to do math and post it on the internet for all to see. Again, doh!
But the wonderful thing is that by my correctly calculated pace, I’m not nearly as far behind. I’ll probably be able to catch up completely this weekend. Huzzah!
