On November 1, I made some 2 month goals. How did I do?
Once again, I'll cut and paste the goals, and write underneath how I did. I'll use a different color, although those of you who read this blog on Facebook won't see the different color:
--keep writing a poem or two a week.
I only did this for 2 or 3 of the weeks of the last 8 weeks.
--organize next book-length manuscript and chapbook manuscript. The book-length manuscript will be my Jesus/God in the world poems and the chapbook manuscript will be the modern working women poems.
I accomplished this--hurrah!
--submit to the journals that stop taking submissions at the end of December.
I did this too.
--submit older book manuscript to 2-4 publishers.
I submitted the full-length manuscript to 2 publishers, and a chapbook manuscript to one publisher.
My goals for 2010 aren't much different from the ones I always post.
My main writing goal is to keep writing. I'd still like to write a poem or two or three a week and submit individual poems to journals.
But here's my main hope/dream/goal: by this time next year, I'd like to have a book forthcoming or published from a press that's reputable (I'm not averse to self-publishing, but I don't think that 2010 will be the best year for me to start a press). I'd love for it to be a book with a spine, although I'd also be happy with a chapbook.
