A couple of posts ago, I posted on my short-term goals. Let's review:
– Finish writing the story about the imp being thrown out of hell
— Check. It's a piece of shit, but it's done. Not as funny as I wanted, so maybe I will revisit it when I feel up to it.
– Log 3K words in my novel.
— Check. Just barely, at 3031 words since then I posted that entry.
– Get four submissions done.
— Check. Did exactly four and even had two rejections already! Yay!
– One journal post a week.
— Fail. @#$%^.
Okay, it was a useful exercise, since I had to be accountable for myself. I started to do this once before and with everything spinning up for my trip over here, I had to drop it. I can't do it this month; if I could, I would be working on my NaNoWriMo entry (which I really, really wanted to do this year). Unfortunately, I will be back at home on my two-week mid-tour vacation this month and I doubt Mrs. Axe will leave me much time to do any writing for those two weeks. We will be much too busy swinging from the chandeliers.
(Muse: Wait, what?)
I'll look at taking this concept back up in December. We'll see. In the meantime, I have a few more journal entries percolating.
