Goals in the Last Week of May

Well, I didn’t get much checked off my list but I did manage to write 7273 words last week.  My son was sick two days and shared with me.  I spent part of Thursday watching tv with him and playing games.  Friday, I beached on the sofa and read two novels.  Then on Friday evening a tornado hit two miles away.  I wonder how many times an editor has had that excuse — I would have finished my article, but we had a tornado.

This week my goals are:

  1. Cut 100 words and submit my next CW article.  Done!
  2. Get one more interview, do the reading and wrap up my Writer’s Guide article.  In progress.
  3. Do the background research and approach the subject for a CW profile.  In progress.
  4. Watch some more Plot Whisperer videos.  I’m doing this to help me finish outlining the plot for my middle grade.  Yeah, I know.  It sounds like an excuse, but even video #1 gave me some serious insight into my plot.  In progress.
  5. 5 posts for One Writer’s Journey.  Done!
  6. Post 2 reviews on the Bookshelf.  I didn’t get one done last week so I want to do an extra this week.  In progress.
  7. 1 post for PrayPower.  Done!
  8. 1 post for the Church blog.  Done!
  9. Brainstorm new ideas for Writer’s Digest.  I worked on one idea last week but am kind of ho hum about it.  Need a better idea.
  10. Brainstorm new ideas for Education.com.  In progress.
  11. Finish how-to chapter.
  12. Clean up more in  my office.  In progress.
  13. Work some more on my nonfiction picture book rewrite.
  14. Play around with my new picture book idea which will require doing some research.
  15. Script rewrites if any more are requested.  Done!
Off to see what I can accomplish.
