My goals are fairly straightforward this week. I finished (or think I may have finished) a first draft of my revised last third of STUMPED. Once I get feedback from my CP, I will polish that baby up and get it off to my agent. Assuming, of course, my CP doesn't thnk it's a steaming pile of dogshit and I need to go back to square one and rewrite... if that's the case, well, there may be some tears, hair-pulling and large quantities of wine. Then once the tantrum is over, back to the drawing board.
Assuming things are all good in Ozzy's world, I am ready to dive back into The Sidewalk's Regrets to revise that again. I spent the last two afternoons listening to the playlists I made for the novel, and I feel ready to get back into Sacha and Dylan's world. I think I've even thought of a better ending too. And by that I mean better than both the inconclusive original ending, and the sort of HEA ending that's on it now. I think the new ending will be bittersweet, but hopefully will feel like the right place to leave this story.
I've had a very relaxing long weekend, and feel better than I have in a while about everything - getting some sleep does wonderful things. Work is going to be busy, of course, with the short week, but I'm feeling much less overwhelmed and anxious about everything than I was two weeks ago. So that has to be a good thing, right?
What are your goals this week?
