Okay. I've got lots of goals set for this weekend and I mean to achieve them. Writing stuff down like this does help me get things done. So here goes.
- Finish my damned Novella: That is, finish my first draft. I've enjoyed writing this, as it's the first thing I've ever done that I actually outlined before hand. I got to tell you, it makes things way easier. If I ever go off on a tangent, I at least know what my end goal is. It helps, it really does. I'm thinking it'll end up between 20 and 25k words long. I might edit it down to half that much, but whatever. I'm just concerned with getting this damn draft done first. Feels like I've been working on this all summer. Not finished, getting close though. I didn't get as much time to write as I hoped I would.
Put my existing novelette up on Smashwords: I can't forget to make sure they don't post it to B&N though. After that I think I can wash my hands of it and call that one done.Complete.
- More cover art: I think I'm going to have to quit stressing and just do it. Let's not talk about this.
Wash clothes: My wife and I are still trying this deal where she does the yard stuff and I do the washing. I hate to say I like it, but I think it's a whole lot easier than the yard. I'll probably feel bad and help her though. It isn't fair.I did wash clothes, not as much as I should have. But it counts.
- Sigh. Take another look at my rejected novel and see if I should query it, en masse, to everyone on earth that has anything to do with a big publishing house or trunk it, or maybe self-publish it. Would you believe I forgot.
Finish A Dance With Dragons: It's the other thing I've been working on all summer. I'm around 800 pages in so far, only a few hundred more and I won't being reading anything else about Tyrrion, Jon, Jamie, or any of the rest for the better part of a decade. I'll be sad when I'm finished, I really will.This may have been the reason I didn't get more of the other things done.
- Buy more beer: Cause I'm out. As some commenters mentioned, this one makes completing the others even harder. I was a teetotaler this weekend.
If I post again over the weekend I'll be quite mad at myself. I need to be writing, not blogging, someone call me on it if I do.
