Deb makes us do goals. (Okay, she doesn't really make us, but she strongly encourages....) Actually, I think goals are a wonderful thing. However, I hate staring at all the ones I don't hit in a month. Somehow it feels like I was sleeping while the test was happening...and it was a timed test...and I was naked...
But it's those months when you hit every single goal on your list that make you feel damn good.
So, here goes for August:
1. Finish two chapters of FJR (which is my current mainstream novel)
2. Finish one chapter of Two Rooms (which is my soon-to-be-current fantasy novel) and have it ready to submit for the writers group by the end of the month--that's for Ali's sake, demon that she is.
3. Finish reading/critiquing the stories for the writers group (because I can't expect them to work for me if I don't work for them. Right?)
4. Read The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.
