Ok. The schedules are all in. The information has been gathered and the google calendar is completely updated. With all of that done and a realistic view of what the fall is going to be, I’ve set my goals for the second quarter.
- September- Finish manuscript 1. Revise manuscript 2. Start researching agents.
- October- Finish any work on manuscript 1 or 2 leftover from September. Continue researching agents. Prep for NaNoWriMo.
- November- Complete NaNoWriMo.
By the end of this next quarter, I should have three manuscripts in varying stages of “readiness” to start sending out and an idea of which agents I would like to send them to. This is A LOT of work to commit to in the next three months, especially with everything going on, but I am up for the challenge and so excited to start digging in.
I haven’t decided what story idea I will work with for NaNoWriMo. I need to wait until I’ve completed manuscript 1 and manuscript 2 before I can decide because I need to get those two stories done and out of my system first. When my brain goes to my writing, I’m automatically immersed in one of those two worlds. I don’t want to fight that right now by trying to decide on the next story I will write. Those worlds are currently calling me and I need to go lose myself in them.
How are you doing with your writing goals?
