I’m only two days and five months late for the Big Dreams Blogfest!
I signed up ages ago for this brilliant, organized idea for accountability for my writing goals, but I keep forgetting to do the posts! A big thank you to Misha Gericke and Beth Fred for the idea and the opportunity.
I have a target of 100 rejections. That means I’m putting myself out there regularly and learning to deal with the anxiety and angst.
- Submissions: 9
- Rejections: 8
- Acceptances: 1
- Still pending: 15
- 2016 Rejections: 30
My goal to finish writing Ferals & Blights was Nov 1st, but I’m not going to make it. I have a good reason, though. I reached the last half and realized I needed to go back and write more. I increased my target word count from 35k to 75k.
- Edited 9 chapters
- Butt in chair days: 14/30
- 1k days: 8/30
Clearly, I can do better on my days of writing. I thought I was doing well with this until I counted. Not even half my month was spent writing, even though I KNOW I had the laptop in front of me every day. *shakes fist at Twitter*
I also belong to a critiquing group online called critters.org. For membership, I must critique one story/month, but sometimes I like to do more. The best would be 4/month.
Because of my dysautonomia, it’s important I walk frequently. I’ve fallen behind here, as well. I would like to say that’s because I’ve been writing, but clearly the data does not support this excuse!
- steps: 110,823
- miles: 49.17
Whew. Okay, now that the scolding is over…
- Butt In Chair count to 20 and the 1k Days to 18.
- Edit 8 more chapters.
- I have to walk more. Let’s aim for 70 miles.
The dialogue starts with you. What goals did you achieve in September?
