WFMAD & Writing Goals

halseanderson asks, "what are your writing goals?"

I'm going out on a limb by making this public (Saying something publicly has always meant I Have To Do It and If I Don't I'm a Failure. Like I said somewhere else, I'm a recovering type A+.). Anyway, here they are : 

1. Finish a first draft of current wip by Halloween (pushing it, but feasible), but at any rate before the winter solstice. Defnitely have enough ready to go for the next Vermont Novel Writing Retreat (assuming there is one).

WFMAD has been a huge help. A little bit of time every day means that when I have more time I don't have to spend part of it trying to figure out where I was and get back into the world of the novel. I'm there already.

2. Research a non-fiction magazine articles before the end of the summer. This is the only time the research can be done. 

WFMAD Sunday - one page. Today - two poems.
