Goals for the week of 1/31
* Finish re-writing the scene in Ch 11 that has been giving me a hard time
* Work Julie's comments into Ch 2
* Get some eyeballs on the revised Ch 1-11
I did none of these things. I have no real excuse.
* Read at least one book
I started a book, and then I feel asleep. I have been the worst reader ever so far this year!
So my MFA program application ended up taking all of my free time this week.
I HAVE BEEN A SUCKY WRITER.
I know why. It's because I don't know how to go forward with revisions from where I am in my WIP and I just avoid, avoid, avoid. I say to myself, I only have 30 minutes right now. That's not enough time for me to get anything done. So I'll just sit here on Twitter for now, and I'll work on this when I have more time. And that happens every day for five days in a row, so if I would have just DONE IT, that's 2.5 hours that I could have actually gotten something done.
I'm so embarrassed. This is terrible.
Goals for the week of 2/7
*Finish reading this book. I have someone waiting for it, I need to stop lagging
*Take even small opportunities to write. Even if I have only a few minutes, that's still enough to revise a few paragraphs
*Continue with my goals to revise and send out ch 1-11
*Outline revisions for the rest of the ms
Hopefully these are doable goals. I have been realizing that everything I want to do takes at least twice as long as I anticipate, so I need to keep that in mind.
Do you have any big goals this week?
*If I never again mention the MFA program again, please don't bring it up. That will mean I didn't get in, and I won't want to talk about it, kay?
