So here I am back in the US of A which means I am also back at school, boo :(. The consolation is that Spain was a blast. There were several moments of the trip where I wanted to exchange a few choice words with some people in the group, but it did not come to that and all was well.
Anyway, now that I have reentered life and have once again immersed myself in a routine, I have noticed that my blog posts have reflected something very disturbing: I HAVE NOT BEEN WRITING!!!!
That’s right, all my recent posts have been related to either my personal life or my writing for the newspaper or class (which sort of counts, but not really because when I say writing, I mean working on my novels or short stories for my own personal pleasure). I have not posted any creative writing goals or updates in weeks!!!
Fear not! I have a Master Plan to remedy this atrocity! It probably won’t work because I’m usually not a scheduled person, but we’re going for it anyway. Cheer me on, friends!
The Master Plan
The hours of 10 PM – 12 AM every day of the week, no matter where I am (this may have to exclude Friday and Saturday nights – I do have a semblance of a life and flesh and blood friends who demand my presence sometimes) are to be completely devoted to either writing, editing, or querying. It’s going to be like taking a shower: something I HAVE TO DO NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS! This way I can still feel like I am being productive toward my most major goal in life, aka becoming published.
I’m serious about this people, Aspiring Novelist has turned over a new leaf. She’ll let you know if the old one blows back over again during finals week/if the summer internship she hopes to attain will force her to select alternative hours.
Right then, here we go …
Creative Writing Goals
Becoming Mrs. Kennedy: At some point this week, I must, must, must, edit this again to prepare for the querying process. It’s just been sitting there for so long, begging to be reworked so as to be sent to eager agents and publishers and hence enthrall young readers across America and from there the globe in the form of a printed and bound book.
Maybe I should start with excerpts of fictionpress.com and authonomy.com.
