ROW80 - Round 4 - Goals get set go

Ok, round 4 of row80 has just kicked off. I'm setting my goals here and raising the stakes for myself, I think I'm crazy but a lot of stuff needing to be done spawned by the end of round 3 and there is no point writing if it doesn't get beyond my hard drive and my blog. This round is all about learning to juggle multiple projects and facets of writing.

1) Keep up with my 6x week yoga routine
2) Continue with studies
3) Complete spreadsheet data for novel in progress
4) Keep up with my daily ghost themed blog postings throughout October
5) Get up to date with backlog of poetry rewrites
6) Start submitting poems to the markets by the end of the year
7) Overhaul my website by the end of the year. I might save this for the christmas break seeing as I'll be off work for two weeks.
8) Write at least one new poem a week (may start this once October's out of the way and my blog schedule isn't so intensive)
9) Read and critique at least one poem a week
10) Get back in the reading habit.

Best of luck everyone and I can't wait to see how you're all doing.

Let's see if Word Press will let me post my comments this time. (I am not fond of the fact that, if it doesn't like the way you sign in, it simply deletes what you've written. Sigh!)

Anyhoo...You've set ambitious goals. Good for you. I'm sure you'll do well.

There are several writers who have included exercise goals. You would think, as a personal trainer, I would have thought to do the same, but nope, I didn't. I think I'll take the hint and add it to our first official check-in.

Great list, Katy. Good luck with your goals this round!

I've seen a couple people reference the use of a spreadsheet in their goals. Sounds good -- do you just track word-count, or other things too? Anyway, great goals. Good luck and happy writing!

Thank you Angela and Ruth.

Jaime, thanks for dropping in. My spreadsheet is explained here in an earlier post <a href =">spreadsheet</a> Basically, I've finished the first draft and I'm figuring out how to develop it properly before I begin the 2nd draft. Happy writing to you too.
