One Writer’s Journey

Goals as We Move into February

Filed under: Uncategorized — suebe @ 2:23 am

I’d love to say that I made my word count last week, but you probably noticed that not much got marked Done!  After I felt cruddy for a day, my son came down with a respiratory infection.  I can always work with him home, but since I didn’t feel good either, motivation was lacking.  Still, I managed to pull down 5600 out of 6000 words.  Not great, but not horrid either.

I’m not sure what I’ll manage this week because I’m taking today off — its my birthday!

Still, I’ll see what I can manage the rest of the week.  Here are my goals:

Weekly Goals (these are my must-dos for the week):

  • 5 posts for One Writer’s Journey.  Done!
  • 1 review on the Bookshelf.  Done!
  • 1 post for PrayPower.  Done!
  • Write my posts for the Church blog.  Done!

Goals with Deadlines (That’s right.  I’ve got deadlines again.  Pitching pays off, folks!):

  • Pitch to WOW!  Deadline:  2/15
  • Outline my next article for WOW.  Deadline for article:  2/27
  • Come up with interview questions and solicit interviews for my next CW article.  Deadline:  3/15.

Non-Deadline Goals:

  • Pitch some ideas to a nonfiction editor.
  • Finish the cookbook proposal and get it out.
  • Get an essay on writing back out.
  • Rewrite the picture book I had critiqued.
  • Do some more work on a PiBoIdMo idea.
  • Work on my agent research.
  • Rough submissions for Blue Mountain cards.
  • Keep working on my web site.
  • Work up some ideas for leveled readers.
  • Work on the middle grade. Go over the Plot Whisperer notes that I originally made.
  • Pull out the YA that I’m going to workshop at a retreat this spring.
