Sprinting through

I’m going to be a little scarce for the next few days. There’s only one week this year when I am not with my children the vast majority of the time, and this is it. I’ve made a pretty unattainable list of goals for myself. We’ll see what actually gets done. If nothing else, I should have Wren ready to send out to my readers by next Monday (yay!). One of those unattainable goals is to come up with a real name for the story, but we know how I am with titles. (Incidentally, both stories mentioned in that post sold, questionable titles and all.)

I’m leaving comments open here today, in case anyone wants to share some goals. Preferably writing, though if you really want to talk about your master plumber’s license, go for it. I’m going to be in and out, so if it takes a while for your comment to come through moderation, don’t despair. It’ll happen.


  1. Ah, goals. I have plowed through writing the last few chapters of my YA sci-fi novel … hurried to finish this novel I’ve been hanging onto for 6 years just so I can say I’ve finished it. So there, I’m saying it: “I finished writing my novel.” But I really need to go back to Chapters 20-27 and flesh out. That is my goal, actually, for the summer. To add meat to those scraggly bones. 🙂

    • Hey Marcia, so glad to hear you finished! That must feel good! At the very least, it deserves a little celebration. And sometimes I think my initial drafts are more like blocking out scenes on stage. It’s the later work that makes everything special. 🙂
