Friday Done List April 5

Goal 1. Adult Short Stories, Essays, And Humor

  • Received a rejection on a humor piece. I kid you not, I've submitted so many times to that place that the editor and I are on a first-name basis. I may have mentioned that before. 
  • Resubmitted the humor piece. It was accepted and will be published next week.
  • Attended a workshop/presentation on travel writing, because I'm traveling this fall. The workshop was quite decent, but now I have so much travel reading I should be doing.
  • Worked on that short story. It seems as if I'm so close to being done.

Goal 2. Submit 143 Canterbury Road To Agents

  • Made one submission.
  • Made a note to myself to check out a literary agency that I thought only represented children's work, but I was wrong.
Goal 3. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding
  • Four blog posts counting this one.
  • Marketed one of those posts on Facebook. Will also market it on Twitter and Goodreads.
  • Reading two arcs in hopes of being able to support the writers. These are digital arcs, and they aren't great for reading on a treadmill or stationary bike. I can't increase the size of the text.
  • One of those arcs could end up being a reading arc for Time Management Tuesday here at the blog.
Goal 4. 19th century novel, which is totally just for fun.
  • Did a little bit on a third draft of a first chapter.
