Here at Write or Consequences, its goal setting time again. A goal should stretch your ability, without causing stress or strangling your creativity. State what you want to achieve, write it down and then map out the route that will lead to accomplishment. We’ve been down this road three times already and here is a quick recap of those accomplishments/ice buckets.
Dawn: Goal One = ice bucket; Goal Two = ice bucket; Goal Three = DRY TEAM
Lorinda: Goal One = ice bucket; Goal Two = DRY TEAM; Goal Three = DRY TEAM
Sandra: Goal One = DRY TEAM; Goal Two = DRY TEAM; Goal Three = ice bucket
Terri: Goal One = ice bucket; Goal Two = ice bucket; Goal Three = back surgery pass
I am confident that eventually, all four of us will achieve our goal of self-publication, and in the meantime, we’ll be here supporting each other, setting goals and maybe getting ducked with buckets of ice.
Our next goals will run through October 30, 2016.
Dawn will edit Book One of her three book series to make it publish ready and she will write thirty thousand manuscript words on Book Three.
Lorinda’s goal is completion of first draft of Book 3 of her three book series and twenty thousand words of the second draft of Book 1.
Sandra will publish Book 3 and Book 4 of her Promise House novellas.
Terri plans to get back to work, post-surgery, and will have pages to submit for critique every week for the duration of this challenge.
Stay tuned for updates on our progress.
Terri Richison (writing as Terri Rich) lives in Clear Lake City, TX with her husband and a giant Great Dane (giant even by Great Dane standards). She is working on self-publishing women’s fiction and avoiding getting a pie in the face if she doesn’t produce pages for every critique session! PIES OR PAGES! Terri started telling stories almost as soon as she could talk – she learned everything she needed to know about storytelling at her grandmother’s knee. Craft however, is something she is still learning – those damn commas give me nightmares!
