I have to not give myself too many goals, because then I inevitably have more than I can handle, which means I won’t finish and then I’ll spend a few days hating myself over the not finishing of things.
So. Goals for May:
- Submit all my short stories to one market or another. Send some of them out multiple times to different markets, depending. Just submit short stories.
- Read one book. I know that is not a lot, but I haven’t had much time to read over the past few months. Reading a whole book will be a triumph.
- Finish the last four chapters of my current WIP, thereby completing the second draft. I know I can do it. It’s within striking distance.
- Keep reading about and writing poetry. Even if it’s just a little haiku during lunch.
I think I am going to call it good. This is plenty for me.
