I have a million things on my mind for this summer. I want to finish my novel FINALLY. I have already forgiven myself for not finishing it earlier. Why beat myself up? It was a crazy and busy school year. The key now is to make goals that are realistic and follow them. I have two months off with the exception of working with the Writer’s Circle in Summit. I am going to teach an intensive Screenwriting class.
I plan to read the notes for my latest draft of Bait, my novel. After I do the rewrite and it’s out being proofed I will continue with the second book. I outlined the book and plan to do a little of both. I have a new supernatural book that will have to wait. I am thinking about embarking on a non-fiction project, and that will be my last project.
Doing a million things at the same time will only end up with nothing done at all. Set a goal for one of those projects that you have put off because you were too busy this past school year. Don’t do more than two things at a time and have some fun.
