First, let’s see how I did on last month’s goals:
Goal 1: Work on new Tumblr account.
Goal 2: I have over two hundred notes on COLLAPSE that I want to work on (word usage, phrasing, continuity, and feasibility mostly). I want to finish them all by the end of the month.
Goal 3: Finish editorial pass on GLITCH, with emphasis on word usage.
So, yeah, I’m pleased with myself. To be honest, the notes were WAY easier than I thought they would be. I guess when you have vague notes like “Work on this” it’s easy to ignore them. Next time I make notes on a book, I’ll be sure to be more specific because it’s really annoying when I have no idea what past-me was talking about. Seriously, that girl is a pain in my ass.
Anyway, for this month’s goals:
Goal 1: Get rid of certain phrasing styles I overuse in COLLAPSE, as well as too many questions, and sentences beginning with “before” or “after”. Update the outline.
Goal 2: Work on promoting the Spamfiles. I’m not very good at self-promotion, the annoying fault of being so shy. Expect me to start mentioning it on Twitter a lot.
Goal 3: Fix the awkward phrasing in GLITCH. Continue word hunt. Trust me, this will take a while.
Basically the same triad as last month. It’s also in the order I want to focus them on, although Goal 2 is more of an ongoing objective rather than a specific task.
Do you guys have any goals for the month, writing or otherwise? How did you do in January?
Man, I told myself I would stop adding questions to the ends of my posts in an attempt to garner comments. Oh well. It’s not like it’s a goal ; ). Yay semantics!
