Goals for Quarter 4

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?

Happy Writing!

  1. Goals are good because I check on them every week. there are some that I tend to keep avoiding so I need to work on those. lately work has been very stressful so that has made it difficult to do much else…
