So with November done and my latest novel rough draft on ice, I’ve decided to write a to do list for December.  It will help me stay focused and no, it’ s not all going to be writing related.

  • Finish Christmas Knitting:  I am making my boys an Adorkable Monster.  I have two different color yarn for each. One is almost completely done, I just need to sew on the arms and horns.  The other I started tonight and I got one leg done.
  • Finish writing “Unrequited”:  I am working on a short story called Unrequited.  It’s specifically for a submission call to Science Fiction Romance Quarterly but the call is for something steampunk.  If they don’t select it, I might find another publisher for it or just self publish it.  We shall see.  I’m only 500 words in.
  • Edit “Stealing the Wolf Prince”:  I’ve gotten some very helpful comments about my manuscript and it’s going back into editing.  I agree with the comments made and will improve my manuscript accordingly.  Some of them I wanted to work in anyway and some I was worried about from the get go.  Vague I know but I’m not about to reveal spoilers.
  • Take online course Creating WordPress Websites II:  Already signed up.  I start December 11.  SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.  I’ve always wanted to learn more about web coding and design and I can apply that to my own writing website.

I think I’ll leave it at that for now.  I have plans for as far out as January but my to do lists can get rather fluid.  Lists help keep me on the right path.  I can get a little distracted and way ahead of myself otherwise.  Do lists help you?
