Making plans

          At a certain point, I get burnt out on a project. Other ideas tumble around inside my head, begging to get out. I have two projects both finished in rough draft form. My goal (but don't hold me to it) is to work on them until the end of the month and then try something I haven't yet. Nanowrimo. Twice.
          I haven't done a middle grade book before, but that's my goal for October. And, for November, a fun idea that's been obsessing my thoughts. A story my teenage daughters (or at least the two who enjoy reading, if I can keep them off the computer and their iPod touches) will love.
          My other goal is to have set times for writing and revising. If I don't make the time, it doesn't always happen. With the kids back in school, it should be easy. Right?


  1. : ) I hope it's easy for you. A failure to plan is a plan to fail, and it sounds as though you have a good plan, so you're on your way!

  2. I'm jealous that you have two rough drafts finished. That's awesome!

    One thing I discovered when all my kids were in school was how startlingly easy it was to fritter the time away and the school day was gone and what had I accomplished? So having a set time sounds like a great plan!
