I thought I was being clever by keeping my March goals short and sweet, but even so, I struggled to meet them. Sometimes life just gets too busy and it’s hard to stay on top of everything. The big wrench in the works for March was my Alaska Essays project, which I had thought was nearly done, but then late in the game needed another revision. For a book of nearly 150,000 words, another revision is a big deal and quite a few hours of work. I guess that’s what I get for leaping to the conclusion that it might be done.
Anyway, my exact goals for March were:
- FINISH DAUGHTER of FORTUNE REWRITE: No check. I made progress, but I did not finish. I guess it will roll over into April.
- FORMATTING PROJECT- No check. This one got cancelled entirely.
- FINISH ALASKA ESSAYS- No check. I did, however, make solid progress on a final and unexpected revision.
- FINISH LIGHT AND SHADOW TWEAKS/READ THROUGH and SEND TO BETA READER(S) CHECK! At least I got one.
- FINISH DAUGHTER of FORTUNE REWRITE: One could say the saga continues.
- ALASKA ESSAYS: I like to think I’ve learned my lesson about using the word “finish.”
- APPLY LIGHT & SHADOW feedback and prep for publishing in May!
