The Coming Week of Writing for Mando

This coming week should be an interesting one, with one of those make or break views for my current writing… allow me to explain.

Last week, as you know, I finished the second installment of Miami Spy Games, and sent it off to the publisher, Hobbes End Publishing. I then took the weekend off and relaxed. No writing, barely any reading, just a man and his thoughts. Oh, and a bunch of alcohol.

But starting right now… today… I will begin a new week and new, more intense goals for my writing.

My goal, first and foremost, is simple: finish the third Miami Spy Games installment by hitting 2,000 words per day, today through Thursday… 8,000 words. On Friday I will then write the first 2,000 words of the fourth Miami Spy Games story.

But, wait… there’s more!

I’ve been seriously neglecting my other stories, so I have a simple goal of writing 500 words on one of the following stories each day: “Cabal”, the third Keyport Cthulhu story (currently at 2,800 of the 5,500 words finished), Dying Days: Origins (8,000 of the 25,000 finished), and Death Cult: Death Metal 2 (18,000 of 50,000 words)… my ultimate goal would be hitting 500 words on each of the three stories per day, obviously.

This week I think I will do a daily recap to see where I am… so you can see and especially so I can see if I get behind, and motivate myself with embarrassment to keep on pace.

As always, wish me luck!

  1. Damn, good luck mate!


  2. Write slave, write!


  3. I’m learning that spending all of my attention and time on one story sucks. Your formula seems pretty sound. Write some of one, work on another, swap back-and-forth if the inspiration in there. There’s a blessed madness in that formula that needs to be embraced more often.
