Weekly Goals 1-5-17

Now the house stress is (pretty much) over, it's time to knuckle down and get some work done before I have to focus my energy on packing and moving.

I had a wonderfully inspiring weekend with the subject of my ghostwriting project.  We spent part of both weekend days together, talking and I have some wonderful material to work with now.  Every story she tells me ends up spinning off into other stories and each one is more fascinating than the last.  I feel like picking the right ones is going to be the hardest part, because they are all so interesting.

And there are so many more to come…

So this week my goal is to finish the more boring parts of the book proposal and make a start on a couple of sample chapters and putting together a basic idea of the shape of the book through a chapter breakdown.

It will probably take me more than a single week to do all that, but it's a goal to start with.  I just have to hope my day job calms down a little bit so I'm not too exhausted and stressed out to sit down and write at the end of the day.


  1. That's always a writer's problem (this one, certainly), not being ground down by the day spent doing other stuff.

  2. At least the subject matter is interesting. Here's hoping the day job calms down.
