Given my lackluster success at last month's goals list, I'm going to be a bit more broad this month. Since there aren't any major holidays this month, I should have three solid weekends for writing. The last weekend is my cousin's wedding, so I'll be traveling for that, but that's the end of the month and I'm really hoping to have all my goals completed by then. Here's the plan:
Passover kicked my butt more than I thought it would. During the week itself I was too busy to get any writing done and the week after I was so exhausted I needed every moment to recover. Then I had to drive home again, which killed any weekend writing time for this last week in April. Basically, I was successful at my goals for the first half of the month, but the latter two weeks were a wash. Here's how I did:
It's been about a year now since I put together a proper goals list that I knew I could keep to. My life has started to gain stability and my writing time has settled down to a proper schedule, so I would like to try setting these goals again.
Some considerations for April that I will have to keep in mind are 1) Passover, which will take away a few days from my writing time, and 2) Editing, since I'm expecting the copy edits for Dragon Adventure, the second round of edits for Justified, the first round of edits for Dragon Home, and all the edits for The Dragon's Hoard series and Short Stories.
With all that in mind, here are my goals for April:
If I can confine my writing to just those stories, I could very well be able to complete one of them and make a lot of progress on the rest.
