i wrote this because:

i want to take over the world

but no srsly sometimes it's nice to have a lil reminder. esp bc writing is exhausting and SOMETIMES WE ALL GET TIRED, YKNOW??

this book is special because:

yes, yes i am making you put this in writing, bc at some point in drafting YOU WILL NEED THE REMINDER!

WIP at a glance



WC goal:

finish-by goal:

the book

put a short pitch here (if you have one) that kind of recaps the heart of the story and will keep it at the forefront of your mind whenever you open your doc. idk you can do whatever you want that's just what is help fOR ME lol

the goal

why are you writing this book? put in in words! make it stare you in the face! no matter how small or outrageous, let it sit in front of you every time you sit down to work.

the heart

what's the heart of your story? for me, it's really helpful to have the heart of my story distilled down to a sentence or two, bc when i'm lost in the revision weeds, it usually that heart i'll go back to repeatedly when i feel stuck. if you don't know it, that's okay! but keeping this question in mind may be helpful

this week's focus

what are you focusing on this week as you draft?

this month's focus

what are you focusing on this month? could be something as simple as getting a single chapter done or as in-detail as explaining to yourself what POVs you want to write, and why

also! it doesn't have to be writing related! live your life!!!
