Over at Writing While the Rice Boils, Debbie Maxwell Allen asked about summer writing goals, prompting me to think about mine. Lately, I've been immersed in my job and family, letting my writing drift a little. So, this seems like a good time to think about what I want to accomplish this summer and get myself back on track.
1. Finish revising The Grand Chef's Apprentice. For those of you following my blog, yeah, this is the book I've affectionately referred to as Novel #4. I've finally decided on a title! I know, it's taken me so long that it should be a cause for celebration.
2. Test the recipes to include in my novel. Yum...this sounds like fun! Maybe I'll do this first.
3. Begin querying The Grand Chef's Apprentice. I even have a query letter written, thanks to my awesome critique buddies.
4. Begin my new project. I even wrote a plan for it, back in March, when I thought I might have time to get started.
If I got these four things done this summer, I'd be happy, and anything else would be icing! Do you have any summer goals?
