It’s time for another Row80 check in! This week’s gone by so quickly, and tomorrow’s Halloween. Our stomachs will soon be stuffed with Thanksgiving feasts and then it will be mass hysteria as the holiday shopping season commences. I can hardly wait. Or not.
Time’s ticking away on 2011, and I’m vowing to push hard on my goals for the next few weeks. I really want to begin the query process, but I want to be completely organized before I do it. I’m working on it, but still have a ways to go.
This week has been pretty productive. Wednesdays list was a big one. I did get through INTO THE DARK. I hadn’t read it in a few weeks and was surprised to see how much I really enjoy it. It’s a good book, and I’m proud of it. I also managed to cut out another 3K or so, getting rid of unneeded clauses and extra language.
I also got some more research done on e-publishers and agents, but not as much as I wanted to.
I haven’t worked on THE PROPHET yet. My mind has been focused on INTO THE DARK. I’m just not great at going back and forth.
Thriller Thursday went well, but it still doesn’t get the traffic I’d like it to. I think one of the issues is that the posts are long, so I’m going to work on cutting them down to about 1500 words.
I did get my crit partner’s pages read. Catie Rhodes has a very good book on her hands:)
All in all, a productive several days. Lists do work!
Here are my goals for the next check in:
1) Make final changes on first three chapters of INTO THE DARK.
2) Finalize list of e-publishers. Continue to work on agents.
3) Write a minimum of 500 words on THE PROPHET.
4) Get back into yoga. I’ve been utterly fail since we got back from Indy. I’m tired and lazy, and I know yoga will help. I just have to do it:)
How’s your week been? Are you all ready for Halloween?
