Weekly Goals 30-3-15

I plan to send STUMPED off to my agent before the end of the week.  Which means I need to finish cutting words out of it.  I'm more than halfway through, and if I have a good couple of nights, I should get done by April 1.

After I finish STUMPED, I'm taking a two week break from writing.  The kids are on vacation for 2 weeks post-Easter, and I have a ton of stuff to do at work, including two trips to Auckland.  So rather than diving into a new project and having no time to work on it, I'll break and hopefully come back fresh to my long-ignored NaNo book.

And that's it for me.  The A - Z blogging challenge starts on April 1 and I foolishly signed up with the idea I'd wing it and just write something each day rather than following a theme.  It didn't feel as daunting then as it does now….  We shall see.

What are your goals this week?


  1. Oh Kate, congratulations on Stumped!!
    I know the A -Z would be easy for you... but I also understand taking a break. Either way... have a good week!

  2. Good luck on finishing with your cutting. And I hope you have some fun while your kids are on break. Although it might be hard with them underfoot...

  3. Sounds like you are on an editing roll! Congrats and keep it up. I have some edits to get through and I am hoping to be done by 4/1 too!

    Good luck with A-Z.

  4. Way to go finishing Stumped! Good luck! And I hope the Auckland trips go well. Did you read Arlee's post about Apples? that got me thinking... You can wing it and make it work.
