Well, I wasn’t planning on altering my goals for this month (so late in the month), but entering that novel contest did it for me.
I double checked the rules for the Genesis contest. Now that I’ve submitted my piece I can NOT submit it for publication. I’ve already sent it places, but haven’t heard anything good yet. I’m not going to submit it again until after May 15th – when I will know if I’m a finalist.
If I’m not a finalist, I can start submitting it again. If I am a finalist…I don’t think I can, but I have to double check the rules.
The nice thing about this is that it takes some of the pressure off. I don’t need to submit the manuscript, so I can focus on my essays and editing my other manuscripts. Oh, and the newspaper. See how nice it is to have one less veggie on the plate?
Looking forward to another month of goals! (And don’t forget that fabulous February day!)
