I got week one's goals done: I submitted my submissions (how's that for redundancy?) and I prepped for the freelance writing class I'm teaching tonight.
But no time to wallow in feeling good about those accomplishments! On to week two's goals:
This week I have three goals:
1- work on the stories I'm submitting for my Harvard thesis
2- finalize the chapters I'm handing in to an agent on a non-fiction book I'm ghostwriting.
3- get my application in for a TA-ship
In smaller steps, this is how those break down:
* Everyday write something on each story. I need to focus first on some freewriting about the characters before I can move into the page-by-page editing. So, I plan to journal/blog about each story, each day. I think I'll start with writing letters from my characters to other people in the stories. That seems like a fun, non-threatening way to get into it. I'll have to do this before/after work.
* During break times at work, try to get in edits to the non-fiction book
* Also during breaks, work on the essay for the TA-ship
Ugh, this is going to be a crazy week!
