Goal 2. Prepare Mummy Hunters for Submission. As a result of reading a book recommended by a NESCBWI workshop leader, I'm actually thinking of doing another revision of this. (Multiplier!) My writers' group will be thrilled. Also, I have some editors lined up to submit to.
Goal 3. Generate New Short Work/Programs.
- Still working on the flash and liking what's happening with it. That's influenced by the book I'm reading, too.(Multiplier!)
- I also made a submission
- Am reading the new issue of Carve.
- I knocked off a 500-word flash essay
- Received a rejection on an essay submission. However, that rejection came from publication that had ignored an earlier submission, not responding at all. So this response suggests to me that I did a good job of matching submission to market. Just not good enough, of course.
Goal 5. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding
- Weekend Writer Print Resources post--Promoted to Google+, Google+ community, Facebook community, Twitter
- Sherlock Holmes post--Promoted to Google+ and Twitter
- Books from Sherlock Holmes post reviewed at Goodreads
- TMT post--Promoted to Facebook, Google+, and Twitter
- Arts Center East post--Promoted to Google+, Facebook community, and Twitter
- Call for CCLC material
- Submitted material for CT Center for the Book website
Goal 6. Generate New Work: I'm considering doing NaNoWriMo this year.
Am I using anything I learned at the NESCBWI Conference? I'm reading the book I mentioned above (and will write about here at length at some point) and what I'm taking from that I am planning to apply to a couple of different writing projects. Which makes reading that book a Multiplier. It applies to more than one goal.
