October Goals

Well, for the first time in a while, I really underperformed on my goals. I have no excuse, except that goal number one took me much longer than I expected this month. In other news, my Imitrex prescription has been a life-saver, allaying six migraines in the month of September!

My goals for September were:

  1. Work on ToB&L Book 4 revision.  CHECK. I finished this yesterday, on the final day of the month.
  2. Finish ToB&L Book 6 revision. No check–didn’t even begin.
  3. Begin ToB&L Book 5 revision. No check–didn’t even begin.

My goals for October will be:

  1.  ToB&L Book 4 revision. Now that the draft is finally done, I can start editing. Normally I’d let the draft stew for a bit, but this one took me so long to write I feel ready to dive back into the beginning parts– in fact, I’m eager to do so. The draft came out to almost 140K words; I’d like to get it down to 115K or less. This revision pass I’ll be honing the focus of the book, cutting extraneous scenes and information.
  2. Begin ToB&L Book 5 revision: I really, really want to get started on this one this month, but, after last month, I’m not entirely certain it will happen. I’m putting it on the goals list anyway.
  3. Other I’m inserting this category because of all the various “other” projects that inevitably sprout up during the month and surprise me. I’m sure some will arise in October.
