Actually, the title should be “Setting Writing Goals When Life’s Kicking Your Ass,” but that wouldn’t be very polite, would it?
It’s shaping up to be a crazy insane week at the old Glue Factory (aka day job), so here is my writing goal: one sentence per day. Last night around midnight, as I opened my working document for the first time since Friday night, I wrote a sentence in this 40,000-word-outline I’m trying to do. Then I got carried away and wrote three more. Four sentences! Then I closed the document.
It’s gonna be one of those weeks. Now I’m off to work, where I hope to talk to a prof in our vet school who’s in Afghanistan taking care of our “dog soldiers.” Okay, some days I love my job at the Glue Factory.
UPDATE: The winner of “The Native Star,” the great new book by MK Hobson is….drumroll…SHANNON. Shannon, I don’t have an email address for you. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get your book to you. If I haven’t heard anything by Friday, Oct. 15, I’ll draw another name. So stay tuned!
There’s still time to comment below for a chance to win the J.R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood companion book–drawing’s on Friday!
