Monday Night Goalposts

Well, it's the start of a new school year tomorrow. I have three kids who will scamper off the wonderfully scheduled world of classrooms and assignments, recess and new friends. Unlike while at home, they will actually have something to do. :D

For me this will mean a few [or several, if I'm lucky] extra hours to write in the week. Yay! [Imagine in October when ALL the kids will be in school! Eeeek!]

Inspired by my dear friend, Moira Keith, I am going to start posting my weekly goals here on Monday night. I want to be disciplined...if even just a little bit. :D

August 18, 2008 - Critique week:
1) Finish C5,6,7 for Leigh Royals
2) Continue work through Lauren Murphy's ms...a few more chapters
3) Keep up with CP, Estelle Harte. Critiques, recritiques--her story is going to rock! I'm very excited for her. A contemporary romance for the American Story line at Harlequin. Go Estelle!
For me:
1) rewrite Switzerland scene.
2) reread 7 books [if I have time ;-)] You know, in between everything else...

With football season approaching... I wonder, why is the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio? I've been there a dozen times [Canton, I mean] or more... still I don't know.



  1. whooo hoooo on the kids being in school, and your goals! Totally attainable. I have my pom poms ready. (or a whip if it is so needed)

  2. Good luck - that's a lot of critiquing!

    I envy that last goal. I'm trying to read a book a month this year. And I'm behind. :)

  3. HOoray for goal setting!!!! Good luck!!! And if you have any good reads, send them my way - :) both your won work of course and any books, I'm reading again, hooray!

  4. That's a lot on your plate, but yeah for school starting.
    And thanks for all you do.

  5. Holy critting! How do you manage the time to write? *shock*

    And I'm going to steal the weekly goalposting from you (and Moira) as well. Except...well, it's already Tuesday. Hmm. I think I'll do mine on Wednesday nights--it works well with school stuff, too. :P

    Good luck on your goals!!! You're a braver woman than I! :P

  6. I should do a survey...take a poll. How many crits are people doing? I mean, I have time to write. I'm writing. I feel like I should give back, that's all. Without the people who did critiques for me in those first years of writing, I wouldn't know shit.
