Getting my little duckies all in a row (via Yahoo images)

This week has been far more productive than last week.

#1 – Edit “Elliott”: Okay, not with this goal. Still haven’t started. But I’m starting to feel the itch that the time will be right very soon.

#2 – Submit twice a month: I only submitted once this month. The story I wrote for my second submission did not turn out well, so I scrapped it. BUT…a poem I submitted in December to a national contest, judged by the poetry editor of Writer’s Digest magazine, came in #5. I was (and am) very excited about that!!

#3 – Post once or twice a week on the blog: Okay, I haven’t really posted much here other than the ROW80 updates, but I figure the blog posts I’m creating for the Hugo House sort of count, because if I wasn’t writing them for HH, I’d be putting them up here on my blog anyway. This one compares books to the movies they inspire. Guess which I think is better?

#4 – Write a poem every week: I wrote a poem for the HH blog, too, for the Word of the Day section. That day’s word was gloaming. It’s not a great poem by any means, but at least I was writing.

#5 – Read a story a day: Doing fairly well with this one, although I think I missed a day or two this week. I’ve decided to apply for grad school, so much of this week has been spent getting my acacemic ducks in a row, as well as writing the all-important and dreaded personal statement. Everything is due by Tuesday. Luckily, I’m almost finished with that (damn  darn brilliant) personal statement.

So that’s been my week. See how everyone else is doing here.
