September Results / October Goals

I’ve posted previously about my obstacles this month. Things are improving, but the issues still remain for October. I’m planning my goals with this in mind, but not limiting myself entirely, just taking it into consideration. I’m still aiming high. One major goal is the revision of my story The Lonely Orchard. The deadline for Realms of Fantasy’s women’s issue is in November, and I’d like to get a story in for it. My chances go up when they eliminate half the competition. πŸ˜‰

September Results:

  • one story reviesed and submitted (new submission)
  • one article written
  • one story rejected and resubmitted
  • one critique
  • started my PARSEC story

October Goals

  1. Article revision and submission (due before 10/10)
  2. Novel Crit for FM buddy
  3. Revise The Lonely Orchard and (let it breathe for a week then)Β submit
  4. Short Story writing: one in progress – bring it to completion
  5. Novel prep (culture building, outine work)

  1. I wish I could submit to the Women’s Issue… 😦

  2. Alex, I have a feeling if this goes off well, maybe they’ll do a men’s issue. At the very least, the men will have grounds to request it. πŸ˜€

  3. Greetings! I wanted to say “hi” to another scifi writer. I recently realized that all of my online writing friends are male (not that I don’t appreciate them by any means) so I thought I’d look for more female scifi writers. I’ve been enjoying your blog so far. I hope the toe is healing well. I, too, report on my accomplishments each month, though other things have slowed since I started writing my first novel. Eek! I hope you’ll stop by my blog sometime–we already “know” some of the same people. Good luck reaching your October goals!

    p.s. How old are your kids?

    • Hi Eileen, nice to meet you. πŸ™‚ Congrats on the novel. It’s an intense experience – I hope you’re enjoying it. The way I figure things, you can work on a lot of little things, or a very big thing. πŸ™‚ Both are rewarding.

      The toe is much much better – another two weeks and the dr will let me get back to my fitness plan. πŸ™‚ And the kids — my daughter is 4 and my son is almost 2. It’s a wonderful age (though the boy is much more work than the girl ever was – I have a feeling I’ll be saying the reverse come their teen years.)

      Take care!
