Let’s see how I did on my monthly writing goals for February.
1. Add 20,000 words to the revised first draft of Hero of Darkwood
2. Update Query Letter
3. Submit Lady of Darkwood to 10 Agents/Publishers
Done, done, and done! I actually surpassed the first one, where I actually made it 26,000+ words into my revisions of Hero of Darkwood, which kind of surprised me, as I had to take more days off this month. But I had quite a few days when I was able to get a nice chunk of writing time in, so that helped a lot.
Now let’s go to my March goals,
1. Get 25,000 words further into the revised first draft of Hero of Darkwood
2. Spend a week (7 hours of writing) on short fiction
This, as you may notice, is less than I accomplished in the shorter month of February, but where as we’re getting close to my wedding date, and I’m working a bunch of extra hours next month, I feel the need to scale back my expectations back a little. I’m not a big fan of setting oneself up to fail. Instead, I try to focus on goals that are obtainable, but only with persistence.
Oh! And I also got some rather positive news today. I can’t share any of it until next week, but I can’t wait to post about it here. 🙂
