Maybe I can’t do what I set out to do. Well, what I set out to do is be a published & read author. There are too many factors beyond my control for that. More immediately, I’ve set out to blog every day and write a short story too.
During the month I’ll post excerpts and rough drafts of these stories over at The Imaginary Lake. Previous bloggy discussions have caused me to worry just a titch if posting a story is a good idea if I want them to be published “properly” (whatever that means these days). Maybe I won’t care by the end of the month.
For May: finish rewrites on novel, send said novel to agent, write a short story a day, blog every day, prepare for my summer classes (teaching a new class & must create all new lessons!), keep the apartment from collapsing in on itself, get the kiddo to skate practice four times a week, take the kiddo to his two-day skate competition, walk dogs, watch new season of Doctor Who, take down current art show, go to the hair salon, go to the dentist, go to meeting with new school director, don’t forget to make gift for mother-in-law (Mother’s Day–not my fav), and don’t alienate everyone around me.
Is that a plan for 31 days? Maybe.
What kind of story are you working on this month?
