Update Day - Big Dreams Blogfest
My goals are to write a million words and make a million dollars. My monthly goal for the past couple of months has been to rewrite Perfect Harmony and send it to my agent. This keeps not happening. This month I managed to rewrite 28 pages, mostly because I have to turn it in to my professor today. And I'm going to have to re-rewrite the first chapter before I do this. At this point, I'm a little bit frustrated. I'm tired of rewriting the same pages. And I want writing to be fun again and to not have to worry about what other people think.
I don't know what a realistic goal for May is. I hope to finish re-writing Perfect Harmony and send it to my final CP before sending it on to my agent. But I've said that before. And I due have two essays and a textbook due in the near future. I'm looking forward to summer when I have more time on my hands. The MFA was supposed to improve my writing. It may be doing that but all the feedback and constant criticism is slowing me way down. And messing with my head.
It will probably be tomorrow before I can come around and comment. I'll be chained to a desk with no internet access all day today.
