August Goals…

Deb makes us do goals. (Okay, she doesn’t really make us, but she strongly encourages….) Actually, I think goals are a wonderful thing. However, I hate staring at all the ones I don’t hit in a month. Somehow it feels like I was sleeping while the test was happening…and it was a timed test…and I was naked…

But it’s those months when you hit every single goal on your list that make you feel damn good.

So, here goes for August:

1. Finish two chapters of FJR (which is my current mainstream novel)
2. Finish one chapter of Two Rooms (which is my soon-to-be-current fantasy novel) and have it ready to submit for the writers group by the end of the month–that’s for Ali’s sake, demon that she is.
3. Finish reading/critiquing the stories for the writers group (because I can’t expect them to work for me if I don’t work for them. Right?)
4. Read The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.

We’ll see….

    If you never make goals, you never are disappointed. It’s a simple mantra, but it keeps the shakes away.

    Ya know, one chapter of the new fantasy novel would be great. Though, I’d never object to two. 😉As far as the test taking analogy goes, look in the bright side – you are a nudism buff. (Ha! Pun!)
