Here I am, ready to take stock of what goals I have (or haven’t accomplished) on my writing path. While I didn’t meet all my targets, I stayed busy with writing and didn’t slack. Sometimes the idea of how long something will take to write or edit isn’t realistic or the story takes a shape I haven’t anticipated. So while I’ll strive to be more productive in the next four weeks, I’m quite happy with the progress I made last month.
What I’ve accomplished since September:
–Wrote The Elephant Hotel chapters 3-5 (two chapters short of my goal)…as well as did some necessary research
–Started compiling another list of literary agents though I might wait to send another round of queries. I’ve received a few more rejections, but the last couple have been filled with constructive critiques based on partial reads (i.e. not the basic form letter). I will probably start a list of the suggestions and execute some changes before sending more queries. I’m still waiting for half the agents from the last round to get back to me.
Goals for the next 4 weeks:
It is a pretty light agenda for the next month…basically, just write, write, write! 🙂
–Draft The Elephant Hotel chapters 6-10 (more if I have time)
