Wow. That’s depressing. The quarter is over and I’m reviewing the goals I set for myself in January. I’m not exactly pleased.
On Jan. 8th, I posted these goals.
#1) I am not yet finished with the rewrite of my WIP, but I’m almost there. I should be finished within the next week. I could make excuses (two illnesses and unexpected trips out of town) but the truth is that I just didn’t push hard enough to finish in the time frame.
#2) I have been working on a budget for the editing/cover costs for my WIP. I feel confident that the funds will be ready when my manuscript is ready.
#3) I don’t have a completed draft. I have a solid outline and a decent start on it, but it’s not ready for submission. Best case scenario: it’ll be ready. Worst case: I’ll finish it late and have another short piece for submission elsewhere. Not a waste either way.
#4) I decided to put the short fiction piece on the backburner and focus on the poem. I have been working on it and it will be ready for submission this summer.
So, before I spend any more time beating myself up over failures, I’ll set some new goals for the 2nd quarter.

There it is, folks! Wish me lots of uninterrupted hours sitting at my desk.
