2017 Writing Projects List

From Kate’s Writing Crate…

As a magazine editor and contributing writer, I have paid assignments for two magazines. As a freelance editor, I have paid projects. As a freelance writer, I have goals I’ve set for myself. I plan on writing about 410,000 words in finished pieces this year.

          Here is my current 2017 writing project list:

Magazine assignments:
(numbers will change as page counts go up or down by eight pages depending on ads)

12 Thoughts from the Editor columns, 450-500 words each
20 Q&A articles, 1,200-1,400 words each
50 articles, 800-1,200 words each
4 book columns, 500-1,000 words each
52 Facebook thoughts/book reviews, 250-500 words each
Total: about 100,000 words published

52 posts, 250-500 words each
                                                Total: about 18,000 words

4 articles, 1,000-1,500                   
Total: about 4,000 words


         Finish roughing out the plot.
Writing in proper format.

My planned word count total for 2017 is over 410,000, using averages.
