My weekly writing goal for the week commencing 17 November, 2014 to 24 November, 2014.
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.
Complete commission for Guardian/Direct Line project.
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.
Well hello there and thank you for dropping by here.
I'm a middle-aged Yorkshire lass, who sometimes screws my writing head on and produces articles. Amongst other publications, I have been published in Dog's Monthly and The Guardian. I mostly write about animals ( I've been rescued by two adopted greyhounds), but, I am happy to write about any topic really.
I have fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism, and my hubby has Parkinson's disease, so life is a challenge at times.
On this blog I have a good old moan, try to offer advice and have a good laugh at myself.
So, join me on my journey... as I visit the hospital - yet again and wear rather too much purple.
Thanks for reading.
