As readers of this blog know, I am an avid list-maker. I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately, and so I am hoping that making and posting this list of things to do will calm me down/organize me. Here goes:
* Promote the writing retreat I'm leading at the Boston Center for Adult Ed next Saturday. (Speaking of which, please check it out, dear readers!
*Look at some old stories to see if they are ready to submit: Rest of June, Darfur, Marriages Mysteries (by end of the month)
*Type up the notes from chapter 2 (of my novel). Continue writing it. I would love to have a draft by mid-October.
*Submit, submit, submit.
And in the spirit of patting myself on the back, here are some "recently dones"
* Organize lists of journals to submit to, and journals I have submitted to and been rejected from (wah.)
* Send first chapter of revised novel to writer's group
* Send essay on body image to MFA friends for review
Hope everyone has a nice (if rainy, in New England at least) weekend!
