Scapegoat has a roadmap. I envision 16 chapters, I know what happens in them, there are three distinct acts (and an overture), and the goats have all been fed and prepped.
I am planning to write 1,930 words daily (or more) so that I can take a day off each week. Not that I think I should plan to take a day off, but I note (looking back over the last two weeks) that I do take a day off each week, whether I will it or not. May as well plan for my known behaviors, rather than my wished-for behaviors.
Is it November, yet?
