It’s week two of the new year and, so far, there’s good progress coming along towards my goals. I’ll admit that getting into a routine again is proving to be a little difficult but there is progress and that’s what really matters. For the most part, I’ve been trying to solidify concrete plans to accomplish said goals.
The way I’ve done this is by making a To-Do List of what I need to do. That might mean that I need to get through five pages of line-by-line edits or maybe go back through a story and check for consistencies. Certain stories have that have their own To-Do List. I’m only focusing on one story at a time.
Last year, I couldn’t focused on one initial goal and that caused a few issues for me. I felt all over the place with no much direction or how to get there. I’ve learned my lesson and I know how that indirection affected my work and goals. I’m trying to do better and hopefully, this method will help me get a bit more organized.
On a side note, my resume and cover letters have gone out to, hopefully, future jobs. All that is left is to play the waiting game. I’m a bit used to that but, at the same time, it isn’t the greatest game. I wish results were given quickly as oppose to a later time but that’s how it is.
All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
