I began 2011 with lofty writing goals. And broke those down into month-by-month goals.
How did I do for January?
I met almost every goal I set. The first goal I didn't meet was finishing the current draft I was working on with my WiP. However, I did finish that draft during the week. I don't think being a few days late is too bad for someone who hasn't had a structured writing path for more than a year.
It was good enough for me that I gave myself a quick pat on the back.
The other goal I missed was finding names for every main and secondary character in my next manuscript. Again, I came close.
Now I have new goals for February.
One of them is to see if I can increase my writing time by half an hour a day. I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but it will take a little doing on my part. I have two ideas on how to accomplish this, so I'll have to experiment to find which works best. Or if neither works and I have to find another way. Or if I have to use both of them.
Another one is to decide on names for the three remaining nameless characters in my next manuscript. All males. And find a name for a business that involves food.
In addition, I want to complete the next draft of my WiP, but that's a HUGE goal all by itself. It may not be possible, but I'm going for it.
How about you?
How are you doing on your 2011 goals so far?
