October Accomplishments

I was slightly less productive in October than I was in September, but only slightly:

  • Wrote 41 poems
  • Submitted 7 poems
  • Submitted my chapbook manuscript to two competitions
  • Started assembling a folder of potential poems for my next manuscript
  • Started a spreadsheet to keep track of writing guides and whether or not they helped me
  • Figured out a good work/life balance. Finally. That only took six months.
  • Completed October Unprocessed (I’m typing this as I eat a completely unprocessed yet utterly decadent mushroom and zucchini lasagna).
I did not get around to developing a recording system for chapbooks/poetry collections I’ve read and liked, but I’m beginning to think that’s not necessary.
Goals for November:
  • Continue with my regular plan of daily poetry writing, weekly poetry submissions, and biweekly chapbook submissions
  • Continue developing my folder for the new manuscript
  • Begin a long nonfiction project I’ve been thinking about since April
  • Do research for the coolest horror story ever. I can’t wait to write it. But it’s the kind of thing I want to prepare for first.
  • Survive the move to our new townhouse relatively unscathed
