In the meantime . . . here is what I think I accomplished this week.
Daily goals –
1- write for an hour a day, this could be working on my book, writing articles, short stories or poetry, or writing extra blogs (my assigned posts don’t count) – I have actually returned to my novel, so I believe I worked on that three times this week.
2- market my book or other current project for one hour a day, this could include researching markets for my articles, devotions, or other writing to various markets, as well as keeping my nose to the grindstone of getting my book sold – I always feel like I am cheating here, but who can keep track of this? Um, specifically, I sent my book out to two charities that I mention in the book. It would be cool if they could promote it in some way. I worked on my presentation that is the end of February. Oh, yeah, and this is exciting. I got an e-mail from a writer friend asking me to speak at her writer's conference. That was ubber exciting. So, I have started working on that. I also added to my media kit. (Do all writer's have one of those? Should I expound on that some time?). So, since I count five things that I did, I am going with five points.
3- comment on one other blog – I noted five blogs that I commented on. And actually this morning, I got caught up on a friends blog and com'mented on like five posts right there, but I am not even going to count all of those.
Weekly goals –
1- post to Dino Chronicles three times a week – three points.
2- post to Writing What I Can When I Can twice a week – two points.
3- work on my social networks, by adding to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Goodreads and Pinterest each once a week – Ok, I did another stupid thing today; I joined another social network. Shelfari. I know, what am I thinking? I am thinking that I will see if it takes off without me doing any more work on it, coz seriously, and I just mentioned this last time, who can keep up on all of that. Anyway, so I added to three established networks and joined another one, so I would say four points.
1- Do research on my novel – five points per month - sorry, nope
2- Submit something somewhere – five points per month - sorry, no again
Finish my novel – 1000 points! Sure, right. Not quite.
Ok, so 22 points for the week. And counting.
