... Any more ...
Inspired by Moondreamer’s post on ‘Endless Fresh Starts’, I thought I’d have a quick rewind and see how I’m doing on the resolutions I made at the beginning of January.
I will write ‘Accidentally On Purpose’ at least to the end of first draft.
Well, the word count is on 14,107. I still need to rearrange the first three chapters before I go much further, but not bad progress.
I will continue to write short stories, but I will be more focussed about where I send them.
Apart from a few existing stories which I have markets in mind for, I’m going to concentrate on My Weekly and The Weekly News, and a few carefully selected competitions.
I will try to get at least one more autobiographical/family history piece accepted for publication – hopefully 'John’s War'.
I’ve written it and sent it off, so that’s in the lap of the gods.
I will read more.
I’ve read the Kate Atkinson novel below. I’ve also got a couple more Robert Goddards that were Christmas presents from the Welshman, so I’ll start those next.
D and I will go to the theatre. Instead of just walking past, looking at the posters and saying, ‘That looks good, we should go and see that’, we actually will go.
We haven’t actually been yet, but I will book it – I will!
I will listen to the Welshman. If he tells me not to waste time on certain things, then I won’t. The Welshman is always right.
Yes, but I hate it when he’s right!
I will write to my own agenda and not anyone else’s.
A hard lesson, that I won’t be forgetting in a hurry.
I will attend a Della Galton writing course.
Booked on for 23 February and Lovely Leigh is coming too, so that makes it even better.
I will find a nice way to tell Smudge that he isn’t allowed to sit on the computer keyboard, or to walk across my desk kicking piles of paper on to the floor.
Not doing terribly well on this one I’m afraid.
- And it’s only the beginning of February! -
