This week my kiddo is off school for Fall Break. The weather in Central California has been in the mid-seventies and gloriously sunny, and nobody is in a very fall-ish mood. We’ve been doing lots of this…
Because of Fall Break, I’m allowing myself a week of sporadic writing, but as soon as my girl goes back to school, it’s back to work for me. I’m going to hit my manuscript hard. I’m going to finish my draft. I’m going to revise as necessary, And then I’m going to send my story to my brilliant and trusted critique partners. After that, there will be more revising, plenty of polishing and fine-tuning, and then my precious story will be off to my agent for her first read.
*My goal is to do all of this before my family and I move, just before Christmas.*
I feel like if I declare my goal publicly, I’m much more likely to stick to working at it and, eventually, accomplish it. So, there it is: I will make my story agent-worthy before Christmas. I think I’ll fit in a 10K or two as well.
What’s your end of the year goal?
