Writer's Pen Wednesday: Setting the Unattainable Goal

As you probably read in my last post, I'm terrible at keeping goals once made. There's that old saying that a goal is just a dream until you write it down, so today, I made a decision to have my current Work-In-Progress ready for Beta Readers (Manuscript finished, and looked over for Typos).

That's my 29th birthday, just in case you're curious.

There it is. Written down in my Google Planner. Once I print off my Blogging Calendar (once we're done moving, and I set up some kind of workspace), I'll write it there, as well. I'm looking forward to using that calendar, and hope that it makes me a more organized person (Mama Miss, the designer recently came out with a July 2014-15 calendar that I purchased).

I'm asking my friends and family for accountability. Ask me how the book is coming. Ask me about the word count. I've done so much pre-work for this book, and built the world and characters so much. I only hope I can do it justice.

I'm keeping a running tally of the words in the sidebar, so if you're curious, you can keep track of it there. This is what I want my life to be, and I feel like I discovered too late that it could be a real thing. Time to get my butt in gear, and get this book written.

I've decided that I want to try to get small publishers to look at it, maybe just see what's out there. I've got my sights set on two specific ones, but I'm going to continue to look for ways to get my work to the world. Starting with this blog, The Modern Jane Austen. Jane didn't give up writing, and she's one of the most famous authors in the world. I can do this.
