Here are the goals posted on the Facebook Page and in the Group in March.
Pam Martin Outline first book of new series, continue revisions of WIP from other series, 2 product descriptions, blog posts for two blogs, FB posts for two pages
Daniel Escurel Occeno The same thing as the previous weeks or months. It will get done. Body fever from insect bites are now traveling worms for inflammation. The medical profession calls it arthritis all over the body. Livable. The mind is mush however.
Sean McGuckin I’ve gotta edit this, but I feel like I’m abusing a newborn child doing so. Idk what to do.￼
Laura Denise Peterson-Phillips Find someone trustworthy to keep my books.
Alisha Vincent Finish rough draft of my novella.
P.J. Marino Finish first draft of my new sci-fi 1hr comedy TV pilot.
Bill Kelly If I can do another two to three thousand words, I’ll be fairly satisfied.
Mary Hill 10 pages a day for the next 10 weeks
Erin R. Smith Working on a fanfiction story to get myself going on my personal narrative essay.
Adam Renfro I’m editing 10 pages a day. This is my second full edit of the novel I’m writing. Here’s my editing process:
1. I edit 10 pages online (it’s in Google docs right now).
2. I print those 10 pages and edit the printed document. It’s amazing what I miss while editing digitally.
3. I then run those 10 pages through Grammarly.
4. I burn my degrees in English and writing because I’m obviously a fraud, a feckless imposter, a Thesaurus-using charlatan.
