As hinted at in my last, but one post, call that a post? yes! I have agreed to make my writing goals more public. Why?
- Because I want to move my writing on.
- This blog is supposed to be about a writer, that’s me, who writes about her writing.
- I enjoy challenges.
- Lastly, I’m not afraid to be open and honest, well to a point. There are some things that you wouldn’t and don’t need to know. A girl has to have some secrets.
So, along with my partner in crime, Colleen Chesebro, who writes the very inspiring blog Silver Threading http://cmchesbro.wordpress.com I am going to set myself weekly writing goals and I will blog every Monday, about this…whether I’ve been successful, or not.
As with most writers, I have a long list of things that I want to write and do. I’m not going to bore you with my everlasting list, I’ll kick start my goal chasing, with just three things, this week.
As I was thinking about this post this morning, I received another commission for the Guardian/Direct Line project that I’ve been writing for. So that will have to go to the very top of my list.
Let’s say that’s a corner kick for me. In theory, If I get my act together it might translate into a goal. But, as we all know , that doesn’t always work out. It isn’t a done deal until it’s a done deal.
2. Write and email the threatened blog post for Hugh.
Hugh, who blogs at Hugh’s Views and News. http://hughsviewsandnews.wordpress.com has asked me to do a guest post for his blog. He in turn, will do one for my blog.
This week I plan to do that and email it him. Watch out Hugh!
3. Pitch an article idea for a publication that I haven’t written for before.
I’ve had this idea on the go for a while now. This is the week I will start to put that particular plan into action. Don’t forget, this also includes market research of the publication, planning the article idea, in rough. Then coming up with a unique and interesting pitch to obtain a commission.
I have no idea where I’m going to find a unique and interesting pitch…I think I may have put it in the kitchen drawer! I’d best find it quick…the clock is ticking.
And that is all for now.
It might not look like a very big list of goals to achieve, but with a post a day on here to bore you with , lots of reading to get through, a hubby with Parkinson’s, who sometimes likes company and needs more help, and a weird head [mine not his] that sometimes does its own thing…it’s more than enough. Oh, and we want to live in a clean-ish house ,with clean ironed clothes. Excuses, excuses …hey?
If I complete all of these items, I will add-on some extra time and penalty shoot outs. [Hark at me, like I know what I’m talking about!]
We’ll see how it goes, so watch this space if you’re interested.
This will also be posted as a page, because as we all know, posts soon get lost in the blog archives.
Now, why don’t you pop over to Colleen’s blog [ on the above link] and see what she’s got lined up for her goals!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Monday afternoon.
Until the next time.
- Complete commission for Guardian/Direct Line project.
