Goals for the First Week of December

Yesterday I: finished my NaNo book, put up my Christmas tree, finished my Christmas cards (just need stamps), baked cookies, bought a present, cleaned my front and back patio, proofread 20 pages and finished up judging the Emily entries.

And yes, napped! The only thing I didn’t do on my goals list from last week was get Cindi’s baby a present, but I plan to remedy that at Borders after breakfast. Then go to the library and maybe go get some poinsettias for the front porch. It's going to get cold this week, too, so maybe a coat for the boy. Or a sweater at least.

1) Update website

2) Galleys on DLB and Surface

3) Work on bodyguard book

4) Outline revisions on road trip book

5) Blog at Supernatural Sisters and Wet Noodle Posse

6) Plan my Christmas around the world unit (wish I kept what I did last year!)

7) Get Cindi’s daughter a bday gift

8) Start tutoring

9) Finish Christmas shopping (or get darned close)

10) House

Hm, not sure whose picture to post. I’m deconstructing the NaNo book, proofreading Surface and DLB (Gerry was the model for both heroes) and getting back into the bodyguard. So it’s a three-fer!

Hooray for getting all your stuff done, but boy, you make me tired! I need an energy supplement, I think.

i AM tired! I have to go back to work to rest! The dh says I push myself too hard. This may be true.

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

I would say he's right. Hard to argue with those results, though, unless you get sick or something. :)

P.S. Don't get sick or something!

When I'm off, I always try to see what I could get done if I wrote full-time. But I told him I'd cut back to 500 words a day, since it won't really do me any good to submit before Christmas anyway.

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Of course it will! It will get your manuscript in before all those others that people will be sending throughout December! They still get flooded with submissions, so the earlier you get it in, the better.

Not that I'm advocating you rush. :)

I should be done with the bodyguard book by the middle of the month if I do 1000 words a day. Still need a title!
