July Accomplishments

Hear, hear! The Great Writing Race of 2010 is over, and I lost but who cares? Cheers one more time to the winner: John!

As the end of the year approaches, I’m trying to sort out what I accomplished, what I didn’t, and the why behind both so that I can better plan next year. What I did not accomplish and why I think I didn’t: I did not finish either rough draft that I intended to. That kinda…

Using Momentum

If the whole point of the contest was to push out words, I did that. And did enough to accomplish the goals that I set for September. There are more check marks than normal. So, using the momentum that was created while being challenged by the crazy wordsmiths that are my friends, I have set…

April Goals, March Sum-up

I didn’t do too bad in March. Got some queries together and off. Got some new pages written–not as much as I wanted, but enough because it helped keep me from going insane while the queries were doing their thing (and they still are, by the way). All the critiques for both groups got finished.…
