Goal time. Mostly because I have nothing really great to talk about, I’ll talk about the stuff I mean to do, but generally don’t get to.
1. read all submissions
2. Originally I planned to bang out the CWC submission and then just worry about writing something new outside of that. But I’ve discovered that the ‘banging out’ which I thought to be ‘editing’ turned into ‘must rewrite’ and by ‘rewrite’ I mean ‘write all over again because most of what I have is absolute tosh’. So that means more writing than I anticipated because I have a hard time turning in stuff that I know sucks the big one. So, three pages a day.
3. One page a day on the new story. That way I can take my time with it.
4. Read some stuff on the side. I want to finish Willa Cather’s My Antonia because it turns out I really dig her writing. Plus I want to read one contemporary writer this month. Mix it up a little.
That’s all she wrote (or wants to write). What about you guys?
Jenny writes dark fiction that her mother hates. Her stories and essays have appeared in Across the Margin, Pantheon, Shimmer, Black Denim Lit, Skive, and others. When she’s not writing her own stuff, she’s reading mysteries for Criminal Element. When she’s not writing fiction or reviews, she’s writing/directing/performing/designing plays at Springs Ensemble Theatre.
