Jan Plan Goals

 
I had decided to participate in Christa Desir’s JanPlan a while back. Here’s the little explanation.
 
“The Jan Plan will involve committing to finish one project. One. However you define “finish”. Just doing what you have to do to get one project out of your unfinished knitting basket.”
 
So here are my goals.
 
1. Revise a little on The Proper Way to Say Goodbye. I haven’t done any querying on this for a while. And then I won a 10 page critique from Kelley York. She had some great suggestions and I decided to rework it. (Thank you, Kelley) So I made my changes and then sent the first few chapters to Theresa to get her opinion on my changes. And she sent it back covered with red marks. (Thanks, Theresa. :( Naw, I’m just kidding cause really, she pointed out a bunch of things I need to change. So thanks again, Theresa–for real, and be warned, I’m gonna make you read all my other stuff from now on too.)
 
After I make those changes, I’ll give it a quick once over again, and then go back to querying.
 
2. Finish my rough draft story (Never Again) from NaNo. Before I can do that, I have to make some calls to find someone to interview. So it depends on them. But I’d better get working on that.
 
Bonus-but it’s not really on my list cause I’m not sure I’ll complete it.
 
3. Finish my newest WIP (Tori). Now this is the one I’m worried about the most. I’m only 5,000 words in, so I don’t know that I can do it. I’ve got lots of ideas down for scenes and just need to get going on it again. And that’s why it’s not on my officia list.
 
So that’s my list. And thanks to Christa for hosting. You can visit twitter at #JanPlan to see how others are doing.

    I sound like an evil CP! lol But I learned from the best ;)

    Lots of new stuff for me to read in the New Year, can’t wait!

    And I see on the side you’re reading Jennifer Echols Such A Rush. I love her and haven’t got to that one yet. You have to let me know how it is.

    You can do it! But I totally understand re: your newest WIP. I’m working on something I know will take me a lot longer to finish than normal…but that’s okay. Sometimes good stories take a while to craft.
