As I shared earlier in the week, my first book signing was today. I really had no idea what to expect as it was held in the thrift store run by a friend of mine (ok, she became my friend when her daughter married my ex-husband. Can you say redneck? Life in a small town.), but I think that overall it went quite well. Again, because it is small town, I knew everyone whose books I signed, but that helps because then I didn't have to look like a fool and say, "what did you say your name was? Ellen or Felon?"
So the book is doing well. I recieved my fourth quarter statement from my publisher and I was pretty pleased with that. My first check will be arriving in the next two weeks.
Daily goals –
1- Write for an hour a day. I can't honestly say this happened this week. I really didn't work on anything new all week, but I did write two extra blog posts, so I will give myself two points, because I make the rules here.
2- Market my book or other current project for one hour a day. I can say with confidence that I did market my book everyday. One day I think that is all I did. Seven points.
3- Comment on one other blog. I think I commented on other blogs six times this week, maybe more or less, I lose track. Six points.
Weekly goals –
1- Post to Dino Chronicles three times a week. Ok, I posted five times, because I am still shooting for blogging every day the entire month of January. But I think I can still only give myself three points, because I gave myself points for this above.
2- Post to Writing What I Can When I Can twice a week. Yup, two times, two points.
3- Work on my social networks, by adding to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Goodreads and Pinterest each once a week. This has got to be a first. I think I only worked on social networking three times this week for three points.
1- Do research on my novel. Didn't get to this yet this month.
2- Submit something somewhere. Still sticking with my story that I submitted two things already this month. Eight points.
Which all adds up to 31 points out of I can't remember how many points. Maybe my system has failed me.
