I am still making progress on my most recent set of goals, those being:
1) Write a query/proposal for “Where the Sky Meets the Sand”
2) Research publishers for it and choose one
3) Send that query/proposal to the chosen publisher
4) Begin writing the next novel, with the working title of “The Big House"
5) Continue to blog on schedule
6) And be more diligent on working out and losing weight
Earlier in the week I did some work on the query as well as continued research on publishers. I really want to send my manuscript out somewhere, but I know that by jumping in when the thing’s not ready is not to my advantage. All things in their own time.
Most exciting however is that I have continued working on the new novel. Currently I have written 3,338 words on it, which, if I have a goal of 70,000 words, it is 4% written. Oh, boy. I’ve also been doing more research on this novel. It is set in the early 1970s and includes elements of the Vietnam War, a religious order, and a young journalist learning the ropes. That is going to require a lot of research on the part of this novice.
The blogging is on schedule, the exercising is close and the weight – not so much. Oh, well.
I did clean out my office this weekend so hopefully the clean and organized space inspires me to keep going. I’ve also been wanting to take some new portraits for my blogs and website, as my hair is so much longer now. The Hubby took a few last week and here are the ones he took this afternoon.
What do you think? Any a keeper?
(This is the same picture as above it, except I left my wrinkles in this one. Can you tell the difference?)
