It’s time for #writemotivation again!
April is OVER!
Where did it go?
It went to the A-Z Challenge, which I managed to complete. Sadly, I did not manage to keep visiting new blogs each day of the challenge. Some things happened – mostly good things!
Before I go into all of that, though, I’m going to wrap up my April Goals. May is also an official #WriteMotivation goal-check month, so I’ve got new goals to announce! But first, April.
April 2012 Goals:
1. Complete first draft of Undoing.
Did not happen. But I did start it!
2. Finish All Hallows Eve contest critiques and get them emailed to everyone.
Hurrah! One down!
3. Finish short story for entry in the Ozark Creative Writers contest and the Nimrod Literary Awards.Another down!
4. Finish read-through of Weeping Willow.
*sigh* nope. I started working on the read-through, but didn’t make much progress.
5. Get a significant amount of May’s blog posts pre-written & start planning some for June.
April took some very unexpected turns in life, so I’m pleased with what I accomplished. I wish I’d gotten a bit more done, but I don’t feel bad about it.
Now, on to May!
May 2012 #WriteMotivation Goals:
1. Complete first draft of Undoing.
I’m hoping to pitch this in October at the Ozark Creative Writers conference. That means by then I need at least be in the second round of edits. So I NEED to finish this in May.
2. Finish read-through and start serious edits on Weeping Willow.
This is my back-up to pitch if Undoing doesn’t get finished. That means I need to get some serious work done on this in May, too.
3. Revise essay for Ozark contest.
I’m not going to be heart broken if this doesn’t get done. I’d like to try at least, though.
4. Write all devotionals through the month of August.
This should take me 2-3 days tops. I just need to sit down and do it.
5. Start working on self-pub devotional idea.
I need to get #4 done so I can start working on this 😀
I’ve also got my one-year blogversary coming up on May 20th (that I have to figure out something absolutely AWESOME for)! And I have a super-top-secret project I’m working on that I’m going to debut in June.
Now, the big news!
We’re buying a house! 😀
Congratulations on the house!! It’s so exciting–and scary. Hope the move goes smoothly.
YAY! on the house!
And YAY! on progress!
You can do this! So cheering you on…
If you need me to throw some zombie T-rexes your way, I can accommodate! 😛
Congratz on the house! ^_^ And good luck for May! 😀
I’m so excited about your house. But you know this bwah hah hah!
May is going to be fantastic – and I’ll see you in TWO DAYS!!!
Adding to the chorus–Yay on the house! And wow, you have a lot on the writing plate! Kick May’s butt! 🙂
Congrats on the home purchase. So wonderful to get to put those roots down like that. April was such a busy month with the A to Z blogging challenge but May is here and #writemotivation is going full throttle. Good luck with your various writing projects as well, especially the conferece items and the self-pub devotinal.
when i first glanced at this post, i thought you’d already crossed off goals for may! OMG! i thought, how could she already be that far ahead! good luck with your goals! you’ve got a lot you want to accomplish. i feel like a slacker.
You’re looking good on those goals! Keep it up! 🙂
Yay! Congrats on the house-buying!
The A to Z challenge sure did make April fly by didn’t it? You’ve got a lot of great goals here.
Wishing you a very productive #writemotivation month,
Thanks, Jocelyn! I’ve definitely got to get the ball rolling, hehe.
Ooo… super top secret project for June? Even I don’t know about this one!
Yes, you do know. When I remind you what it was, you’re going to go “Duh!” 😀
