I saw a news report on the supposed 'end of the world' according to the Mayan calendar. Don't get me wrong, I love the end of the world scenario. I'm writing about the end of the world for crying out loud! But a lot of people have been freaking out about it and prepping for the end or planing on committing suicide before the end. Really, all the stupid things that people think when the end is coming. I have a different problem with the end -- procrastination.
Originally, my goal was to finish the first draft of my story by December. Obviously that deadline has come and gone. So I'm still working hard on All for Owen, but now I don't have a goal. I've honestly been planning on setting a new goal for the first draft on New Years eve.
I'm being lax now, so I can set myself up for a successful New Years resolution! I know, I'm just as bad as those doomsday, eat drink be merry folks!
I can't let it happen.
My new goal is to finish the first draft before December 21st. That's right, while people are stocking up on gas masks and practicing their zombie survival skills, I'll be writing furiously (well, I'll also be practicing zombie survival skills -- don't judge). Because this goal is for this year. And on New Years Eve, my resolution will be to rewrite, polish and submit my COMPLETE manuscript to a lucky literary agent.
Bring it on Mayan's!
