I’m not forgetting you- I swear! I’m just determined to get the mountain of stuff I need to get done, done before Camp NaNo begins. I know it’s never going to happen, but I just have to try!
So, I was sat at my desk this morning and realised that I hadn’t really set myself any expectations for the next few months, especially in terms of my writing. Don’t get me wrong, I have some major decisions coming over the next few months; some, dare I say, should take precedent over writing. But, I don’t want to neglect my writing… again.
So, I have decided on June, what do I plan on getting done (writing wise) between the start of April and June?
Can you guys guess what this aim is? Seriously come on guys- do I need to write the words… okay I will write the words!
Complete the first draft of Red Peril for Camp NaNo!
No. I don’t just mean reaching 50K. I mean, getting to the end of the story.
Guys, I’m guessing you have a rough idea what might be coming up in May… oh you got it!
Ah, but seriously, I wont be able to just revise for a whole month. So I have some short stories that I really need to work on. I have three or four that I need to get written for August, so May will most likely be plotting these out in quite a bit of detail.
Right guys, I have three aims again…
Firstly, I want to get Red Peril close enough to being finished that I can start getting in touch with Beta readers.
Secondly, I want to draft out all of my short stories for the anthology. They are all roughly ten pages long each, which doesn’t sound like a lot; but seriously guys, I need to work out how to write a middle grade book.
Thirdly, time to plan for next Camp Nano!
So… those are the goals I am setting for the next three months. I want you to let me know what your plans are… down below!
In April, I will…
In May, I will…
In June, I will…
Let me know below, and remember guys, being accountable for your aims increases your productivity!
Until next time my friends,
