Wednesday's Writing Update: April's Goals

 

Happy Wednesday!

Writing Men of Foxwick is going well. I'm on my last short story ("Monster Hunter"), and I'm self-editing the other stories this week. If all goes well, I hope to send Men of Foxwick to a few of my critique partners by April 1st.

I have April's goals planned out.

1. Rewrite/edit Part III of The Phoenix Prophetess.
As part of Camp NaNoWriMo, I've decided to rewrite at least 30,000 words in Part III of The Phoenix Prophetess and edit as well. So wish me luck "camping"!

2. Edit Men of Foxwick from critique partners' suggestions.
I hope to get Men of Foxwick to my CPs in April and perhaps get it back before the end of the month.

3. A to Z Blogging Challenge
Yes, it's that time again! I want to focus on blogging too in April, particularly visiting blogs. My theme this year on this blog is All About Foxwick.

That's all my goals for April, and since April 1 starts Monday, this will be my last March post, so I have time to gear up for the challenge.

2013 Stats Since January 1st
38,854 words written (11,775 so far this month!)
587 pages edited

Sounds like you're on track. Looking forward to your theme. Enjoyed the Flashes last year!

Kittie Howard said...

You're inspiring, Cherie! Looking forward to your A-Z posts!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Good luck with the goals. I think I need to follow your example and set some specific ones.

Al Diaz said...

I wouldn't miss it for the world. You're one of my favorites! :)

Patricia Lynne said...

Great goals. I need to figure out mine for April aside from the A to Z challenge.

Gwen Gardner said...

I wish I could get so much done! You're very inspiring, Cherie. I need to take myself in hand now. I'm looking forward to your A-Z :)

Jai said...

You are amazing. I am looking forward to your A-Z.

You are so organized. I'm still blown away that you edited my entire novel so quickly. My first editor on my first book took a year and did a crappy job. And then I had another that tried to help me edit and it took her four months to get through the first chapter!

Christine Rains said...

Can't wait to read MoF! And your A-Z posts. It's going to be a great year for the Challenge. You've written lots this month! Woot!

J.L. Campbell said...

Sounds like you're making waves, Cherie. I gotta finish up my posts too.

Camille Picott said...

I just love reading about your goals and accomplishments. Looking forward to reading your A-Z posts!

There's so much going on, I have to post Friday... le siiigh. That's OK.

I'm loaded up for April and ready to go. Hopefully, I'll only have to visit.

Lexa Cain said...

What ambitious goals - but if anyone can do it all, you can! :-)

Heather Holden said...

Congrats on already being on the last short story for Men of Foxwick! You have so many fantastic goals for April. Good luck accomplishing them all! It's going to be really fun to see your A-to-Z posts come April. :)

DL Hammons said...

Can't believe A to Z is right around the corner already! :)

Julia King said...

I'm excited for the A to Z blogfest. We are getting so close to start day. Bring it!

Cathy Keaton said...

Good luck with April and getting all those blog posts written. I'm curious to see how it's going to go. ;)

Good luck on the A-Z challenge:-) And how in the world to you count all your words written in a month?

nutschell said...

These are great goals, Cherie! Good luck! I'm skipping AZ this year to focus on my rewrite, but I'll still be dropping by to check out my bloggy buddies. :)

It sounds like you have a busy month even without the challenge of A to Z. Good luck.

Dropping by from A to Z Challenge. This is my first year participating.
