It’s March at the end of this week. Oh. My. Stars.
How the first two months of 2019 have disappeared so fast, I just don’t know. But it has, and I’m rolling along with it. Or being rolled over by it. Really depends on the day. 🙂 The beginning of March marks the start of the fourth Quarter for my writing goals. Quarter four for me covers March, April, and May.
Goals for Quarter 4:
- March: Revise my second manuscript. 2nd round of full manuscript critique with my peer critique group friend.
- April: Finish revising second manuscript. Print new business cards.
- May: Finish revising third manuscript. Attend NESCBWI Spring conference!
I don’t have anything listed for goals for querying or pitching researching agents/publishers this quarter. I really, REALLY need to finish the revision of these manuscripts before the end of my 2018/2019 writing goals year. I’ve worked so hard this year and accomplished so much more than I thought I would (this Blog was part of the goals I didn’t think I’d be able to do this year) but I have yet to fully revise an entire manuscript and that HAS to be done. Writing the stories and having that body of work behind me was a huge goal. Having those stories revised is necessary to continue on the road to publication. I have started writing query letters and getting my feet wet in that part of this journey, and I may continue to play with that process, but I HAVE to get these two manuscripts revised. It will take precedent over any other work that can be done. I’ll also be attending a conference in May, continuing the Blog, being an active member of my peer critique group that meets twice a month, and taking care of all the things that come along with those things. But, as often as I can, I will be revising.
How are your projects coming along? What are you working on right now or what are you excited to begin working on?
