Alright, I do I get started? Where do I write my summer goals? Right here, just like I’m doing right now or there is a special page for these particular series of Posts?

Tried a few days of Camp NaNoWriMo, July session, and it’s just not working for me. Sooooooo – Summer Goals: By August 31st – WIP first draft revisions go into second draft rewrite. AND re-start on the Upper MG quest that I’ve outlined & and have the first two chapters in first draft form. Yay, Summertime! Yay, for having achievable goals!

Summer goals? Finish a couple scripts that I am lagging behind on and start to blog on a more consistent basis. Also, getting my children’s book on the market soon.

My summer goal would be to finish the novel I started to write in last year’s NaNoWriMo challenge which I tried for the first time. Will use the month of August to give me the 30days like the challenge used. Using July to get more consistent and disciplined with writing so August goal can be accomplished.

I have to finish the script for a graphic novel in development. Also put the nail in the coffin of a feature-length espionage screenplay.

To print out the many related memory pieces I’ve written over the past few years, to see where I’m at in the process of creating my memoir. I’ve encountered some obstacles so far- ran out of printer ink- bought more cartridges, then the printer broke. Now in the process of installing, although having a bit of a time. Help me,Lord!

Once I get them printed out and see where I am, will begin writing a book proposal.

Finish first draft of story inspired by a series of Toasted Cheese Sunday Brunch Writing Prompts. Blogging at some point, and maybe looking back at a story I had started for a contest that I never turned in. Maybe I’m far enough from the event with the other character to write with some truth but not get so attached (there’s another story that could apply to, too).
