ACFW Novel Track

Christy here... September means a new month for Novel Track. I compare Novel Track to NaNoWriMo.  I also like to think of it as another number for me to keep up with. I'm already counting points. I'm already watching the clock - Am I late? Am I early? Is it lunch yet? Is it time to go home? 

My Novel Track Goal is 15,000 words for the month. I'm adding an entire subplot to a previously written manuscript.  Yeah, I know, this may qualify for the Novel Editing Track, but it's September and that's what they offered.

I can tell by reading the posts of the participants that this system does have an upside. It is encouraging reading that everyone is just as busy as I am and they are also getting their writing accomplished. And, they post "0" when they didn't write anything.

Do you find it helps you to join something like Novel Track or NaNoWriMo?  Or do you prefer to keep your progress to yourself?

  1. I do enjoy doing book in a week or month challenges. It makes it more fun.

    Good luck, Christy!
