Coasting toward "The End"
Friday, August 22nd, 2008

Progress on Texas Men

Well, not quite coasting, but I have 94 pages to go, have the first three chapters firmly in my head, and I can commit to writing 9 pages a day minumum for the next 10 with a day for revision at the end—so easy, right?

I just have to keep organized. I finished up the second novella and took a look around my place and got a little creeped out. Dishes stacked on coffee tables, unopened mail, stacks of books that need to be put back in their proper place. So today, I’m committing to the following:

1) TM-3: Add 15 pages (hit 16 pages with the help of friends and a couple of sessions of timed writing!)
2) TM-3: Complete ch 1

3) Wash rugs
4) Strip bed and wash sheets
5) Complete 1 DSRA crit
6) Clean office
7) Clean bedroom
8) Clean bathroom

9) Complete 1 DSRA crit
10) Dust rooms
11) Sweep/vacuum downstairs
12) Mop floors

13) Complete 1 DSRA crit
14) Reorganize To Do stack
15) Clean pool

The last time I posted my To Do list here, I kept to task, so maybe I need to do this for the next 10 days, huh? Maybe not. But at least you can keep me accountable throughout the day if you don’t see everything getting crossed off the list!

I did have some very good news day before yesterday I’d love to share. DOWN IN TEXAS has sold to the bookclubs (Doubleday, Rhapsody, and Book of the Month Club)!!!
