One week of panic and a few days set aside for putting on my road warrior hat to help a friend changed my productivity. Oddly, my weekend road trip helped in a nice way since I had gotten stuck with something with my skeletal outline. But I've gotten some inspiration and can't way to see how it works out with NEVERLOVE.
So, here are my goals for May 2012
Goals for May 2012:
1: Complete first draft of NEVERLOVE - Not going to get done by the end of May. Will have to adjust this for around mid June. But I don't want it any later than that because I really want to learn how to set and stick to self-imposed deadlines. If I can do it for myself, perhaps there's hope for me yet that I can do it for a publisher - whatever the size.
2: Comment to other blogs, at least 20 to 25 a week - This one isn't too difficult. I usually visit and comment on way more than that in a week but my panic stunt, road trip and the writing have made things...interesting. :-)
3. Complete minimum two blog posts a week - All systems go at this point. Phew!
Now, about that inspiration...Deirdra over at A Storybook World created several blog awards and has graciously bestowed one of them on me. Here is the comment she shared:
You have a fabulous blog. I’m an author and illustrator and I made some awards to give to fellow bloggers whose sites I enjoy. I want to award you with one of my homemade awards: The Inspiring Blog Award. There are no pass along requirements. This is just to reward you for all the hard work you do!

From this blog award, I'm feeling inspired to really buckle down and let my creativity flow into NEVERLOVE. There are other blog awards she's got there. Go here to check them out :-)
So I'm curious, how do you handle deadlines, whether self-imposed or "strongly encouraged" by another source?
