Looking Back & Moving Forward

Right around when I began this blog,  I wrote a general plan for the upcoming months. Incredibly, that plan, with some unexpected additions, has actually been fulfilled! It seems like time, then, to lay out a new plan for the upcoming months:
  • Finish my 2nd manuscript.  Though my Camp NaNoWriMo goal has been met, there is still quite a ways to go before this draft is finished (as illustrated by the fun graphic below.)  
    • And then that draft will need to be edited.
  • Participate in Pitch Madness, a contest hosted by Brenda Drake:
    • A 24-hour window to submit a 35-word (max) log line and the first 250 words of a completed manuscript for a chance to make it into the final round, judged by a slew of agents.
  • Anxiously await results of the preliminary rounds of the RWA chapter contests in which I've entered K&S.
  • Begin book #3 for November's NaNoWriMo.

What are your goals for the upcoming months? Share them in the comments!


  1. Ooh, I've got a couple of goals! Read a bunch of PBs and MGs over the next few weeks; write outline for MG novel to have ready by Nov.'s NaNoWriMo; immerse myself in a 5-week pb writing course at end of August. Nuts, I thought it would be quieter than the past few months, but nope.

    1. Ooh wow. Not that I'm surprised, you do always keep busy! Are you starting a new MG for NaNo, or finishing your other one? On the plus side, you have a couple weeks before the course starts to relax a bit with the reading!
