My goals aren't huge this week. It's a big one work-wise and if Monday has been anything to go by, it's going to be even more hellacious than I suspected. So I'm not putting any pressure on myself.
My revision is done. I added about 5K to the total length of STUMPED, which isn't too bad. It's sitting at 86K now which is a little long for YA, but not outside the ballpark. So my goal this week is to go through and cut all the unnecessary words and redundant phrases. I figure if I cut 100-150 words per chapter, I'll be good.
But if I don't, it's no biggie… I'm sure my agent will have ideas where I can trim if necessary. I plan to send the MS off by the end of the month, so I don't have a huge amount of time. Hopefully just enough for my CPs to do their worst!
And that's about it for goals. I have so much to do at work this week because the deadline for Cannes is fast approaching and we have a film that's being sent there as well as being screened for a test audience here. So everything else has to take a backseat.
What are your goals this week?
