Misha Gericke and myself. Misha dreams of making $7500/month in royalties in five years time. And I dream of being a millionaire. This blogfest is so we can all support each other and be accountable for creating a plan to obtain our dreams, however small or large.
And I'm so thankful for this bloghop today! Why? Well, because until Misha reminded me it was time to post, I didn't realize it was this week. It gave me a post. More importantly, it gave me a kick in the butt. I had already finished my draft of Perfect Harmony last week which gave me 63,130 words to deposit in my bank toward a million. (If you look at my expert counter on the side you can see I'm almost half way to a million). And I'd started to make agent revisions on the manuscript I completed in June, Finding Hope. But I thought there was still time in October, so I hadn't began to update social media or format The Other Marlowe Girl for nook or smashie. Getting Misha's reminder made me make time for that. I updated my email signature and the cover widgets on my blog today. I attempted to update my twitter background with the A Missing Peace cover but it turns out the current cover just looks better as a background. I did get TOMG formatted for smashie though I never quite got accepted to the premium catalog and I got it up on B&N. In addition to this I've made good progress on FH edits. So my goal is to finish my read through tomorrow. (I'm writing this on Thursday night). Then go back in the first 90 pages and mark one character's behavior problems that I didn't realize was a problem until 90 pages in. After that, I'll send it to my cp, and finish reading a friend's book over the weekend for a review. My plan for next week is to start self editing PH and hopefully have that in the hands of a first reader by the time my cp gets FH back to me.
So when we see each other next month I might not have as much to report, because I plan to finish my daughter's baby book before I start drafting my next book. But I hope to have both Finding Hope and Perfect Harmony revised. I hope to have Finding Hope sent to my agent and Perfect harmony ready to go to my agent as soon as we know what's going to happen with FH.
So that's me? What are your goals/plans for this month?
