Time for the Wednesday update. Be sure to visit all of the Row80 blogs. I’ve accomplished a little.
- Writing: I am toying with the idea of NaNoWriMo. Even though I know I can’t reach the 50,000 word goal. I enjoy the fun and sprints. Summer camp with NaNo was lots of fun. Anyway, I’m almost finished editing my WIP, that will leave me more time to write. Knowing how much time I have, I’m starting small, 3,000 words a week. This starts after I finish editing. Look me up at NaNoWriMo I go by Writechik. I pulled out the rough outline I made 4 years ago. Read through and froze in my tracks. I wrote the outline when I finished the first draft of Dead in the water. After looking at it again, it sounds too much like Breaking Bad. There was a nasty teacher who was the mastermind behind a meth ring. What’s funny is, I don’t have cable and have never seen a single episode of Breaking Bad. Now, I have to go back and come up with something else.
Editing: Finish editing my WIP, Dead in the Water. Finish edits by October 21. On track. I have about 30 pages left. Then I need to print it out and reread it.Just finished edits. Yippie. Now, I have to go to work. Bummer.
- Submissions: Start submissions
October 22Nov.1, send out 2 a week the rest of the round. Stop laughing….think positive. Pushing the Submissions back to Nov. 1. I’ve got the WIP printed out. This morning I’ll be making a list of agents and publishers to send it to. Yikes! That’s scarey.
- Social networking: This is the hardest. I am bad at just liking a post or a tweet and leaving. So my goal for this is to respond more to blog posts, even reblogging, and be more involved on twitter. That’s not measurable. Comment on 3 blogs a week. I’ve commented on 2 just this morning.
- Blogging: Have 2 nonRow80 blog posts a week. I’ve only posted once this week, should have one up tomorrow.
Coffee: Master my new coffee pot. Apparently there is a learning curve.Done
I’m on track. Makes me happy, I think I will celebrate with chocolate 🙂
