"Goal" Post

carol
Goals, goals, goals.

I love setting goals.

As my Grapemo goals have been reached, it's time to set others.

First, February goals in review:

Complete revisions on proposal pages on LMB
Complete synopsis of LMB
Send proposal and synopsis to agent for review


Goal for March:

Complete 100 pages of revisions for KND

Goals for April

Write a synopsis for KND
Submit proposal for review

Writing a synopsis for LMB was a nightmare. I don't have a first draft, only 100 or so readable pages and...well, now I have a synopsis. The story itself is, essentially, still in my head. Writing a detailed (5 pages, single-spaced) synopsis for a story I haven't actually written was an experiment in terror. Happily, as I've been assured, a proposal synopsis isn't carved in stone.

With KND, however, the first draft is already written. Though writing a synopsis is never easy (frankly I'd rather floss my teeth with a razor blade) at least I have a decent foundation and won't feel as if I'm making it up on the spot.

After your stellar performance during Grapemo, your March and April goals sound totally doable to me. Good luck!

As for me, well, I tend to be a seasonal writer (as in, some books get written in the winter, others in summer, etc...) but I really want to finish at least one of the three WIP's I have this year, so I'm trying to write as much as I did last month for Grapemo or more before warm weather starts tugging me away from winter novel and back into summer novel.

Oooh, good luck to you, too! Hopefully we'll knock these projects out in no time at all!

Good luck with your goals! As ugh-worthy as it is to write a synopsis, it definitely seems like it will go more smoothly for KND, so I'm hoping that ends up being the case for you!

As for my goals, they're pretty much the same as they were for Grapemo: all comics, all the time! XD

Congrats on making...and reaching...your goals! I don't look forward to the dreaded synopsis either, but I know you will rock it!

Goals for March are fuzzy at best. I have had company fairly well non-stop since the end of February, tomorrow #3 group leaves and on Thursday #4 arrives, LOL!

Still, I DO have goals...sanity, survival, and having a lot of fun among them :D On the writing front they are more modest. Finish another chapter. Keep moving closer to the May goal deadline.

Forward motion!
