I say “G” because this week focuses on goals and guest posts. My first guest post (ever!) will be over at Marcia Richards’ blog this month. Her blog is smart, sexy and the colors are so easy on the eyes, she could blog about squirrels in a battle for the Winter Nut Challenge and I would read it. Her style is so smooth and positive. If you are not following her, hop on over and check her out. No need to send me marshmallows. My guest post at Marcia’s blog will be about Goals! With the new year already flying by, we need to make sure we’re not taking on more than we can accomplish. Rock on Marcia!
In other “G” news, I will have my first guest blogger (everrr) over at The Great 80’s coming in February. Sharon Howard tells us what it was like in England in 1988. I am excited about this! I have never traveled outside of the country and always wanted to know what life for a teenager was like in other places. Join in the fun. I will be doing some shout out’s to remind all my peeps about Sharon’s guest post. Her blog is amazing and honest.
In ROW80 tirades, I am freaking out because the more I edit my NaNoWriMo novel, the more I get down on myself. I know it is a good story, and know it is the first novel I have ever completed (with the exception of the novella I wrote and never edited back in 1998). Maybe it is my perfectionistic attitude toward myself. I read about this attitude, and it can only lead to emptiness if I let it own me. I am in the process of my second edit/rewrite and then I am going to have someone else look at it.
Also, I started writing my second book idea with the help of 750words.com (which I am loving!). There is something about forced accountability that helps me.
On the menu for this week:
- Continue to clean up “Bound and Broken” rewrite.
- Finish query letter for “Bound and Broken.”
- Read 50 more pages of “The Art of Subtext.”
- Read/comment blogs.
- Write 750 words a day.
- Get to gym at least 3 times this week.
- Relax for two hours today.
I hope everyone else in this ROW80 thingamabobber is doing amazing! I look forward to reading about all my fellow ROWers goals and progress. You can link here if you are in on the ROW80 fun!
