- Finished first edit for Mothers Don't Die (65,000 words) and recruited 2 beta readers.
- Found a narrator for the audio book for Standing Stones through ACX. Now waiting for first 'draft' of recording.
- Tabled Rivers of Stone (this was a hard decision, but July and August = research trip to support this project).
- Wrote a poem a day (April's A-to-Z Blogging Challenge) on my writing blog
- Experimented with a second promo (discount) for Standing Stones through EReadeerNewsToday.
- Participated in ROW80 as sponsor and made goal of reading x5 each week. Didn't always post my check-in on time, though.
- Surprisingly made a start on the memoir project (and taught a workshop).
What I didn't complete makes a longer list. Is it useful to say what I didn't do? I agree with Denise Young that when our writing routine gets knocked to pieces, for whatever reason, we can struggle to return, measuring success sometimes in very little achievements.
Should I even sign up for Round 3 that begins July 6? We'll be on the road for 6 weeks in Canada (hopefully cooler than the 104 posted today), but I already know that setting goals in the categories of WRITING, COMMUNITY, MARKETING, CRAFT, and OTHER (exercise, quilting), will keep me focused.
And I want those goals in front of me -- that commitment to writing keeps me focused and able to support others. I'm in.
How about you?
