Goals in the Last Full Week of March

Last week, I managed to write 7254 words.  Unfortunately, I probably won’t be getting my chapter book done before I leave on the retreat Friday.  Why?

Because some nervy editor gave me a contract.  The 9 activities are due next Wednesday.  And then another nervy editor gave me a contract.  The first piece is due in 10 days.  With my son off school for the week, I doubt that I’ll get more than 3000 words written this week.  That means focusing on those deadlines although I do plan to do a bit on the chapter book.

Here is what I’m hoping to accomplish:

Here are my goals for this week:

  1. Outline the CW article.  Done!  I actually managed a rough (very rough) draft on this one.
  2. Write one page/day on the chapter book for a total of 5 pages.  Done!
  3. Do one activity and write it up each day.  That should get me through 5 of the 9.  Done!
  4. 5 posts for One Writer’s Journey.  Done!
  5. 1 post/reviews for the Bookshelf.  Done!  A special thank you to my son who wrote a guest post for me.
  6. 1 post for PrayPower.  Done!
  7. Brainstorm some new ideas.  Done!
  8. Do my reading for the retreat.  In progress.

I’ve found a new market I want to attempt and I want to work on some new ideas for Writer’s Digest but this week that probably won’t be possible.  What can I say?  I’ll do what I can do.  But when April comes around, I want to take another look at my annual goals and see if how I’m doing.  Fingers crossed!
