This also meant I got to see a lot of my family members, and that my sisters and brothers and I were all together for the first time in probably close to a year. It was a lot of fun, but as you might have guessed, I didn’t actually get a whole lot done. In fact, I didn’t open my computer all weekend.
I know. I was shocked too.
1) Write at least 3 reviews.
Still where it was last week.
2) Finish NaNo novel.
I’m at nearly 6,000 words for this month (whee!) and I’m continuing to crawl my way to the end. 🙂 With just a couple of good, solid days of writing, I think I could have this knocked out.
3) Build a list of 5-10 agents to submit MGG to.
I started browsing QueryTracker and adding to/updating the list of agents I’d been building for TSB last year, since I had a feeling some of them would work for MGG. I’ve highlighted 4 agents I definitely want to query, removed a couple who don’t really sound interested in this genre, and blacked out a couple more who are currently closed to unsolicited queries. So just a little more time on this, and I’ll have a solid starting place.
4) Revise MGG query and chapters 6, 7, 10, and 11.
I’ve been poking a little at chapters 6 & 7, and I think I’ve got a pretty good hold on how I can update those to better fit with the new setting without losing any of the bits that need to happen there. I don’t know if I’ll be able to complete the revision on four full chapters before the end of the month, but I will give it my very best shot. At the very least, I will outline how things need to change.
5) Read 2 books.
Yeah, remember how I said if I didn’t finish Riveted last week, it would be because I had forcefully made myself focus on other goals? Yeah, guess what book I finished last week. >.>
On the plus side, I get to mark this goal off my list, and I’ve started reading Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.
1) Finish at least one blog series that’s in the queue.
2) Read 4 books, including one nonfiction book.
3) Start revising 2013 NaNo novel.
How’s May treating you guys? Doing well on your own goals?
