Goals for the week

WRITING GOALS - Focus on my YA book for now. It seems to be going smoothly (well, more so than the other, anyway)! I know most of my characters and the outline is coming along nicely. I need to finish the outline and enter what I have so far into the laptop (not fun)! I've been writing it in longhand and I have no real idea as to how many words I have so far. Also, everything just looks so much neater all typed up. It's going to be time-consuming and frustrating, but I'll have to do it eventually.

For my 2 childrens' stories - they have been sent to an editor already, so they are good to go. I just need to research the market and try and find "homes" for each one.

Also, I'd like to come up with a couple more good ideas for childrens' books, as I love writing for kids!

So...YA - outline and what I have so far entered into the computer
Ch's stories - find "homes" and generate at least two more ideas

My 8-month-old keeps me from setting any kind of real schedule, so I'm going to log my time and check back in here Sunday with the results.

FITNESS GOALS - since this isn't just a blog about my writing, but one about accomplishing ALL of my goals...I am planning on TRYING to start eating right and exercising. I'm so tired of being exhausted and feeling bad, catching every cold and bug that comes along. I also wouldn't mind looking better! healthier, drink at least 3 bottles of water a day, and exercise for 30 mins at least 5 days this week.


  1. I like your goals, Tammy.

  2. Sounds like a great list of goals for the week. Good luck and happy writing!

  3. This is the first chance I've had to check out your blog, and I REALLY like it! I've got one that's similiar in the goal setting aspect, and find that it helps me stay on track a lot better. I hope yours helps you do the same. I like your goals this week by the way! Best of luck with them!
