Here are some of the goals posted last month.

Jonathan Lazar Finishing outlining the last third of my first draft so I can finish the first draft. And then working on some revisions with other books, coupled with school work.

Daniel Escurel Occeno I have three short stories, which I entered in a contest. I think; it was Harlequin. Been awhile. The three need endings. It might be later to write on the stories, but my mind and thoughts are trying to figure out how to end it. The contest was to write first chapters and I decided to make it into short stories instead of novels.

Audrey Paulduro I’m amazed at how many things can actually become a fiction novel if you really think about it!!

Lois Paige Simenson Read through first draft of novel for plot, flow, pacing.

Chad McClendon Not murder anyone outside of a work of fiction.

Jacinta Amutsa Finish outlining my first novel and start writing the first draft before the month ends.

Daniel Escurel Occeno To self-publish on an eBook my novelette, “First Time Traveling Machine”. The story is a time travel romance; Henry Pelago volunteered to try an unproven machine and he ended up at London 1895.

Beth McGee Write a 6 page Moratorium on renewable energy development land use. Done^! Edit one audio book chapter, finish online survey for website, go on vacation for 10 days.
