My goals for Friday and Saturday (I originally posted them separately but meh) were:
Find something to post to Becoming Writer Workshop. Recommend doing further edits to “Monster in Manhattan” story and posting the second draft.
Did edits to “Monster in Manhattan” Story and posted it to the workshop group.
Find six more contests and journals to send off to.
As it turns out, I had a copy where I had already added more magazines so I only needed to add a few more to get to 20.
Pick a writer to contact and get clear about the contact. Ask any necessary questions.
Spoke with a writer about their personal essay piece and about submitting, etc.
Give three people feedback on the workshop website.
I did give more feedback to one person. Two more to go.
Write letter to writer.
I guess I thought I was going to pick a writer one day and actually write them as a goal separately. I ended up doing everything all to together in typical Kate fashion.
Watching the video for, and start working on the next assignment in the LitMagLove class. There is no video. The assignment is to send a story to five different magazines. I’ll have to do that by the end of day Sunday. I’d like to do it tomorrow but the stuff I worked on today took me about 6 or 7 hours and I’ll be at the fellowship thing for too much of the day to be able to do that tomorrow. Especially since I need to do a few more edits to the story and to my base cover letter before I sent it.
Still, I really productive day and I’m pleased about that.
So, here’s what I have left to do this weekend:
Give 2 more people feedback.
Edit “Monster in Manhattan”
Edit my cover letter.
Figure out which other four magazines I’m submitting my story to since I’d already picked one.
Rework my cover letter four times.
Attempt to send my reworked cover letters to the correct magazines along with my story.
