Where Did April Go?

I can’t believe it’s April 28th.  Has it really been almost a month since my last post?


The month has flown by what with a hectic book review deadline, kids’ school activities and a long weekend away in New York City which has left my writing competing for a spot in my schedule.

Things are settling down though and the writing is picking up.  I am not where I want to be when it comes the goals – that consistency thing – but I’m still striving for them.

My goals are as follows:

1. Write 500 words or 20 minutes per day. (Creative)

2. Complete 60 pages of a 120 page script. (Creative)

3. Draft work of short fiction for the Writer’s Digest competition in June. (Creative)

4. Work on my paranormal revision: 30 minutes a day – Tuesday, Thursday, Fridays and during scheduled Writing Times.

In the last few days, I have been accomplishing goals #1 and  #2, mainly by combining them.   I have decided to take my writing time to another level and have it outside the home instead of in, and that, so far, has worked wonders.  Now, I only started this weekend, so we’ll see where that leads, but it’s been a good start.

Goal #3 has been modified a bit — instead of short stories, I am working on submitting at least 2 scripts to the Writer’s Digest Competition.  I’m excited about this because these scripts are what I’ve been working on this weekend.  I just need to submit approx. 15 pages.  In working on my screenplays have renewed that love I have for writing screenplays.  It’s been great.

Goal #4 – nothing lately on this one.  Soon, though.

So it’s been a good end-of-the-month.  Of course, there are two more days to go but I feel pretty confident that this upswing will continue.   I get to have another writing time outside of the home tomorrow night so I’m excited to see more progress.

Wishing all you ROW80ers an amazing week of words and progress.

  1. I totally feel you on April. But, at least you don’t do this thing I do. From April 1-10 I think June is the next month. I totally forget about May, so I freak out.

    Combining goals is a great way to get stuff done! I hope the upswing stays true for you and things keeping going great. 🙂
