I’m back from my son’s graduation from Nipawin Bible College. Now, it’s time to really crack down and generate some income.
I’m trying to hunt up work again. This freelancing can be tough going.
Complete edit of 90,000-word manuscript on prayer ~ Edits 1 & 2 were done Friday morning. I am now waiting to hear back from the author re: final tweaks.
Complete edit of 27,000-word fiction manuscript ~ haven’t heard anything more on this yet
Edit three more poems ~ hope to do this today
Continue as first editor of the Write! On news bulletin ~ pretty much on track
Now that I’m back, I need to get back on schedule.
Two five-minute skits for our mid-week kids’ program ~ done
Sometimes I’m tempted to look for a position as a staff writer. The whole submission thing is so uncertain except…I am certain I will not sell my writing if I do not approach publishers, editors, and agents.
Reading for my doula certification course ~ I will finish this in early May.
Reading to maintain my PTS certification ~ In favour of hunting up more work, I may put this off for a bit.
Skills development ~ I think this, too, will have to wait.
Fiction ~ I read a little of the first Wheel of Time book while I was away.
Doula Certification Requirements
Finish my reading ~ see above
Complete my exam ~ first week of May
Complete my research paper ~ first week of May
Online lectures ~ first week of May, if not before
Letters of recommendation ~ I want to approach people next week, so I can pick up the letters the first week of May.
Instead of waiting until the end of May, I want to have everything in the mail by mid-May.
Exercise & Fitness Goals
I’m seriously thinking of starting each weekday by working out for half an hour.
Row Specific Goals
Check in twice per week ~ on track except for this past Sunday when I was in Saskatchewan
Check in with other ROWers ~ So far, this is a pipe dream this round.
Keep in touch with my writing buddy ~ nothing formal
