Here's what I'm hoping to accomplish in the coming month:
—Finish my f!%@&$*ing revisions for Second Nature.
Five scenes across three chapters. That's all that's left. (Yes, I know that in my last post there were only four scenes left. But now there are five. Again. Yay.) Sure, I vacillate hourly between so-close-to-being-done-that-I-can-taste-it and I'm-burying-this-damn-manuscript-in-the-backyard-and-never-looking-at-it-again, but I really, really, really don't want to have this goal again next month. With a little luck, that determination/desperation will be enough.
—Come up with topic for my upcoming author appearance.
Yep. That's right. I said yes to doing another author appearance. The kind where I have to stand up in front of a group of people and speak intelligibly on some yet-to-be-determined subject for 10-15 minutes. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I do hope there's a treatment for it.
—Read at least three books.
I'm currently three books ahead of schedule on my Goodreads challenge. (Thanks, Firefly-themed graphic novels!) It'd be a shame to fall behind now.
—Walk, run, swim, or bike at least 3 miles every day.
I have managed to do this every day thus far this year, and I'd really love to continue this trend. I'm sure with all the revision-frustration pacing I've been doing that this goal will be no trouble whatsoever.
What are your goals this month? Or week, or day, or even in the next hour?
Have a great Monday, everyone. See y'all on Wednesday for the Insecure Writers Support Group...
