Snippets Of Selfishness


Just a quickie post today. Kind of all about me. Being selfish. Sometimes you just have to be that way. 🙂

The rewrite of The Unmaker is continuing. And I’m disappointed by that fact. I say that because I feel like I should have it done by now, I wanted to have it done by now. I think that the reason why is I did not give myself a deadline.

So in order to rectify that little oversight I hereby give myself the deadline of December 21, 2012. No wait that’s a deadline for something else. At least I think it is. Seems as though I’ve heard Something about that date.  😉

Okay enough giggling. My deadline for finishing The Unmaker is – November 30, 2011. That’s it, now I’ve done it. Committed it to paper and this post. and I’ll post weekly updates on the process so I can keep myself focused. Printing out a list of to-do stuff, weekly goal sheets, charts and other ‘tools’ to keep myself on track, because I love to that kind of thing too.

This kind of process helped me to get a first draft finished earlier this year. So it stands to reason that it’ll work again. I don’t know why I didn’t do this already. I mean I love lists and such things with numbers and bullet points.  🙂

Maybe a word count and page count widget on my blog. Or some kind of calendar thing that counts down the days, hours and minutes to my deadline. Hmm…..

Thanks for reading this rather self-indulgent post today. Words of wisdom and advice are always welcome.

  1. Well done for setting yourself a deadline and for making yourself accountable – by posting it on your blog. All the best with your re-writing, and just think how you will feel when it is finished.

  2. The best way to reach a goal is by first setting one. Best wishes on seeing it completed 🙂
