Goals in the Last Full Week of June

Well, I didn’t manage to hit my word count last week.  I pulled in only 5660 out of 6000 words.  I did a lot of non-writing writing work (research, reading, and the like) but I do wish I had managed to hit my word count.

My goals for this week are:

  1. Finish collecting interviews, outline and draft my last article for the  CW annual guide.   Done!
  2. Solicit and collect interviews for piece #2 in the rotation, another craft piece for CW.  In progress.
  3. Solicit interviews for piece #3 in the rotation.  This is a markets piece for the newsletter. I have commitments for half the interviews I need.  I’d love to make this 100% by the end of the week. In progress.  
  4. Work on a new pitch for Education.com.  In progress.
  5. Prepare some activities for Gryphon House.  Done!
  6. Do a bit more work on my nonfiction picture book and ask a friend to critique it.  Done!
  7. 5 posts for One Writer’s Journey.  Done!
  8. Post a review on the Bookshelf.
  9. 1 post for PrayPower.  Done!
  10. Write my posts for the Church blog.  Done!
  11. Brainstorm some new writing ideas.
  12. Work on plan for middle grade rewrite.  In progress.
Good luck with all of your goals for this week!

  1. When I need a writing rudder and feel aimless, I click on your blog link, knowing I will read about goalsetting, persistent progress, and lots of evidence of the w. habit…a motivating dose of everything I need to set or maintain my course. Thanks for the light! Heather Brinkerhoff.

    1. Heather-
      Thank you! You don’t know how much I needed to hear this today. Now off to get something done in the 35 minutes before someone else comes through the front door. Maybe it will work best if I put the phone in the microwave!
