Memorial Day weekend was mostly lazy, with a whole lot of not going anywhere. It was lovely.

Goal update:

1) Write at least 3 reviews.
I’ve written two so far! One was published last week, the other is scheduled to go out later this week. I’ll see if I can get #3 written before Saturday.

2) Finish NaNo novel.
Over 7k for the month, through two more scenes, which leaves me with just 5 or 6 scenes to go. I CAN DO THIS. (Five to finish the story, six if I want to throw in an epilogue. I will probably throw in an epilogue.)

3) Build a list of 5-10 agents to submit MGG to.
I’ve got a list of 8 agents! I’ll do some more in-depth research on each one as soon as I finish the necessary revisions to the story.

4) Revise MGG query and chapters 6, 7, 10, and 11.
Yeah, I might not finish the revisions on the actual chapters, but I will at least start them sometime this week, by God.

5) Read 2 books.

My stretch goals are totally not going to happen, except for one:

Read 4 books, including one nonfiction book.
I am actually into this one, since I’m reading Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott, which is interesting, amusing, and so far pretty easy to read. If I finish this one and one other book this week, I’ll have hit one stretch goal, yay! πŸ™‚

Just a reminder, if you want to sign up for June, the signups are open now!
