Okay, quite often when I am headed to a social function, I remind myself: Maggie, don't talk too much. It's not that I'm an extrovert, just when I get nervous, I feel like I have to fill the silence with meaningless babble.
And here I am on my blog, talking too much. I've posted most days this week, but it's just because it seems like I've had a lot to say.
Anywho, July 1 is here. Yep, the year is half way done. How are you doing on your Resolutions? Here's my run-down.
1. Revise Letters Never Sent and submit it to agents/publisher.
****Finished round 4,982.3 of revisions. Have begun querying agents, and am waiting feedback from one crit partner. Then I will resubmit. Woohoo!
2. Finish a rough draft of Danielle, Never The Bride.
****Last month this had grown cobwebs. Now those cobwebs are growing mold. So yes, still no progress here.
3. See a weight on the scale I haven't seen in a few years.
****Yahoo. Running (I'm up to four miles) and diet have been going well. I have half a pound to go! Yes, I'm on the slow track, I realize this. But all in all, I've lost thirteen pounds in 2011. I have half a pound to my original goal and five pounds to my dream weight goal. I think slow and steady is going to be good in the long run.
4. Get going on long-term savings.
****Nothing has changed here. But, on the bright side of things, my first royalties from Growing Up Gracie came in and instead of using the money, I promptly created a MAGGIE-WILL-GO-TO-STORYMAKERS-2012 account.
Feels like a pretty good month. Six more months to go!
How are you doing on your works in progress? I know lots of ladies were planning to finish in mid August. Are you on track?
