March Goals

Yeah don’t have high expectations for this month. Or any month really.
February Goals
1. Actually do the editing notes for my new WIP. I really want to do this so I can start sharing it, because I honestly have no idea what to do with it and need some advice.
Well, I did this. I’m really pleased with how it came out, though I still have no idea what to do with it. It’s so different from anything else I’ve ever written.
2. Actually do the beta reading notes. If it’s not too much trouble.
Look! Over there! A distraction!!!
3. Work on something fun, maybe a new WIP. Because that will solve all my problems.
I’ve been kind of fooling around with a few things. No idea what I’ll ever do with it, but it’s something.
Ugh, winter. UGH, FEBRUARY. I’m ready for spring now.
March Goals
1. Get some feedback on my new WIP. It’s a contemporary mystery about the murder of a girl. It’s character driven and very different from what I usually write, so if anyone anywhere would like to look at it and give me some guidance, I’d really appreciate it.
2. Try to edit the WIP I keep avoiding. I might ignore it, but I can’t let myself forget it.
3. Keep working on my latest new project. This one should be easy, I hope.
Just a few more weeks until the equinox and the change of seasons, and I can’t wait. What do you want to do this month? Do you like mystery novels?


  1. You can edit that story - you can do it, little camper!

  2. I'll read your mystery. And I know you can edit that WIP. You just need to want to, and if you don't, there's probably a reason why.

  3. You know, it's totally okay to put off the editing right now. The world is crazy, and sometimes you just need something soft and comforting. That might not be editing right now.

    I'd volunteer to read for you, but I don't know if I'm going to have the time right now. Check back with me next week. (I may or may not end up on another long term, and if I do, I won't have reading time. If not, I will.)

  4. I had a horrible February thanks to the "good ol' boy" freedumb inbred white supremacist trucker occupation here, but fortunately that's done and over with now.

  5. Like Liz said, it's okay to put off editing right now if you're not feeling it for whatever reason (even if you don't know what said reason is). It's sometimes best not to force those things (and I have absolutely NO real world experience with that claim...). You'll get back to it when you're ready.

    I would love to read your mystery for you, but I probably won't have an opening until May at the earliest.

    Best of luck with your March goals! You're doing great!!
