To give you an idea of my day, I had an appointment at the dentist this morning. This follows on from madly rushing from the house yesterday thinking I was late. So despite today being a nursery day for The Sprogs I still had to rush off and have my mouth poked, prodded and drilled. And fork out money for the pleasure. -_- But…! If I put that to the side the rest of the day has been pleasant enough and there are two writing events this evening I’ll be attending. Well… Da Shared Brain is going. I’m not.
Given that I had a massive change of heart on Saturday a lot of these goals are now moot. However, it won’t hurt to take a look at what I’ve done with regards to finishing them off and assessing where I need to be going forward.
~Transfer ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’ edits back to Scrivener
Done. It took far longer than I was hoping, but it’s done.
~Do a ‘kindle read’ of ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’
~Send ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’ to beta readers
Since I hadn’t done the ‘kindle read’ I didn’t want to send the file to betas. It didn’t seem fair.
~Send one review request for any story in the Meeting Each Other Series
~Start NaNoWriMo (and keep up with the daily word count – DON’T go overboard if unnecessary)!
No. Well… I started, as you saw this morning, but I’m not up to date. And I’ll need a pretty major day devoted to it if I plan to catch up. Don’t know if I’m going to get that to be honest. *sigh* Early days yet. We’ll see.
October 2014 Goal Recap
~Complete all tasks assigned by Breathless Press with regards to Slippers & Chains
Frankly put, this is the most important goal. And yes, I’ve kept up pretty well. So well in fact that this is the only area where I’m up to date. But, looking at the priorities, I believe (and am happy) that this is the right way around.
~Complete edits on ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’ reading for sending to Karen in November
My edits are done. I just need to get some beta comments before I’m happy sending anything to Karen. I should be able to get that this weekend. *fingers crossed*
~Ensure chapter by chapter outline of Slippers & Chains: Second Base is ready for working on
Done, which leads neatly into:
~Make decision with Ileandra about who will do NaNoWriMo this year
Also done. It’s me – if you hadn’t already guessed(!). And I still think this was the right decision; it’s not like Ileandra would have had better luck what with the work she needs to do for Fab Fables.
Goals for November 2014
Well… I guess there are two things I need to focus on really. Everything else can go on hold.
- Complete any and all additional tasks assigned by Breathless Press
- Send ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’ to Karen for editing
- Complete draft of Slippers & Chains: Second Base
I don’t have any more Breathless Press tasks right now, so I have a bit of wiggle room.
- Do a ‘kindle read’ of ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’
- Send ‘Simone & Mr Bradford’ to beta readers
- Send one review request for any story in the Meeting Each Other Series
- Complete 500 words of Slippers & Chains: Second Base daily (only attempt the full NaNo goal if other jobs are complete)!
I think that should prevent my head from blowing off. Let’s see how we do. 🙂
