November Goals

Here we are already in November, and for the first time in over a decade, I don’t find myself dreading the spectre of Christmas!

How’d we do in October?

  • Keep writing Thunder Road Book 3. No word count goal again. Any forward progress while I’m on tour for Tombstone Blues is going to be considered a win.
  • Finish “A Door in the Rock” and rewrite it based on editorial advice.
  • Try to get “A Door in the Rock” typeset and printed in time to hand out at C4.
  • Post at least one blog per week. (I’d like to do more, but in the pursuance of realism have to be honest).
  • Turn in my story about The Puzzle Box by The Apocalyptic Four for Prairie Books Now.

While I finally finished “A Door in the Rock”, I just finished it, so at this writing it hasn’t gone off to my editor yet, this makes my goal of having it printed for C4 (on…checks watch…Friday) a little unrealistic, but at least it’s done.

I did manage to average more than a blog post a week, but I did not in fact post once per week, and as these posts are supposed to be about accountability, it doesn’t feel right crossing that one off the October list.

And what about November?

  • NaNoWriMo: I decided what I’m going to write and I’m going to put words on the page dammit. It feels like a long time since I’ve had steady, big word count days, and I’m hoping this will kickstart my routine back into shape.

That’s it. What? 50000 words in a month isn’t enough for you? I’m calling it enough for me. Anything else that happens is a bonus.

Write on!

  1. Nano, eh? I’d consider it, but there’s this thing… at work… that I’m still working through. I’ll encourage you, though. To paraphrase my wife, paraphrasing Michael Swanwick’s wife, “Write faster, Ginther!”
