Some time ago I searched online for something along the lines of goal templates. I ended up getting a whole bunch of hits in the marketing sector involving quarterly goals. But I didn’t let that get to me, I can adapt to it. So I decided that I’d try to have my writing goals set to three-month time periods. That’s a decent amount of time for having a few goals. Not loo long, not too short 🙂
Last night I managed to finish my initial draft of The Things We Do, something I had kind of dragged my heels about for two weeks because I wasn’t quite sure how stylistically I was going to end it. But I was just like screw it and changed what character was being focused on.
So now my goals from now until end of July are;
- Second draft of The Things We Do.
- Another draft of The Backup Girl.
- Finish writing a first draft of Beyond This Small Moon of Ours.
The last goal has been inactive since last year. I pretty much have most of the story planned out and quiet a chunk written, but I went and let myself be distracted by other stories. My bad 😦
I have this ultimate yearly goal of publishing three/four stories. So far I’ve got one short story out there, so I’m partially there 🙂 I just need to force myself to do it.
