April Goalsies

These recap and goal posts are coming later and later in the month. I'm such a slacker.

(Heh heh, I said 'goal posts'. Like soccer.)

Moving on...


1. Finish revising Temper and get to betas!
I'm about halfway through my first pass of revisions, so I want to finish up then send it off to betas to get some feedback!

2. Write three chapters on new project!
It's true. I've started a new project. I'm not doing word count for this one because I'd like to see if setting goals to get to a certain spot in the story works better than word count. Also, I'm writing this one out in a notebook. That's right, actual PEN and PAPER. How old school. I don't want to say too much about this story yet, but it's about FORBIDDEN LOVE and ZOMBIES. The current title is THE INFECTED and I already have a pretty awesome opening.

3. Continue to blog a lot and comment a lot!
The online blogging/writing community is totally awesome. I like being more active, even if it takes up a bunch of my time. It's a fun way to procrastinate! :)

4. Read books!
I'm not setting a number, but ideally I'll read about 6 so I don't fall too far behind. I think I'm going to read a book a day in whatever month I choose to query. Not only will it get me away from the internet and stop me from checking my email 800 times, but I'll get way ahead on the 100 books in 2010 challenge!

What do you hope to accomplish this month?


  1. My goal is to get out of bed 30 times! :)

    I'm becoming jealous of the methodical way you're going about this book writing business. You are unstoppable. Nothing slows you down. It's almost as if you're a female terminator...except for writing. LOL.

    Seriously, I'm shooting to have a query letter ready by the end of April. That's no easy task.

    Good luck on your goals (as if you need it).

  2. Great goals! Considering how well you did last month, I have no doubt you'll succeed in each one of those goalsies!

  3. Good luck with your goals! Happy Easter!!

    My goal is to actually finish my outlining. I hate outlining. UGH! ;)
