I've been bad, friends. I've let excuses keep me from writing. Some were legitimate at the time I made them (I have to study for a test), but then they gave me an opening for more excuses (I've been working really hard for class, so now that it's over I can take a break and go on an anime binge). The point is, I haven't been writing.
So I'm done with excuses. I'm making goals and reporting to you guys to keep myself accountable. Here's what I have on my plate in the writing department:
1) I have critiquing that I've already committed to complete. This spring I've done way more critiquing than writing, and it's been one of my excuses. I'm going to cut down on the amount of critiques I'll be doing in the future. If you're a writing friend I know in real life, (or that I took an online class with) I'll still be happy to critique manuscripts. However, I'm cutting down on my Scribophile critiques.
2) I need to finish edits on Om Nom Nombies. I have some good big picture edits that I know I need to do, but they're all in my head. It's a matter of sitting down and making the changes.
3) I need to finish writing The Neif. I've only added about 1,000 words since the end of NaNo!
4) I need to do some serious research for this year's project. I'm not ready to unveil what it is just yet, but it's going to take more than a couple Google searches to do this justice.
Yes, goals have to have deadlines. I'm saving that for next time. We are moving into our first house next week, and that's the last of my excuses I'm letting stand in my way :) So, no post next week, but in two weeks I'll have an official plan.
