Kick in the Pants

Wow, this is a great idea!

On Christine D'Abo's blog, she gave a challenge to set goals for the next six weeks.

Since I have a story to finish for the Shreveport conference and the synopsis and pitch as well, this couldn't have come at a better time.

I can't stop, though, until I finish my first manuscript, which I WILL DO come Hell or High Water TODAY. 3500 would do it. I lost 800 over the weekend to duplication and various scenes that didn't work.

Work tomorrow on the mail route then get back on MOL to get as closed to finished as I can in February before working on synopsis and pitch.

So here's my Kick in the Pants strategy, Christine.

Big Goal: Finish my first MS today then commit to finish MOL for Mar 1 conference appts, including synopsis and pitch.

This week's goal: 10-12,000k, 2,000 a day ( I can do this! I can do this!)

Challenges: Need two days for work and neglected house cleaning, will lose ground reworking new plot lines since I left MOL, fear - I'm in the middle

(Yes, I'm avoiding writing on my own challenge)

The timing is good, isn't it? You've set yourself quite a goal, but then again you've got a deadline anyway. Good luck!
