My Goals

Goals are good. Procrastination is bad.


Okay, I'm going to set some goals. I am writing a 50,000 romance targeted at Harlequin's Romance line. It will have approx. 15 chapters.
  1. I want to have the rough draft finished by August 30, 2007.
  2. I will right 5,000 word each week for the next 10 weeks.
  3. I will write at least 5 days a week, and aim for 1,000 words per writing session.

Go Me!

And I'll probably add to the list above.

Research Goals:

  1. Find out more info on mortgage underwriter departments in banks.
  2. Find out usual bank structure... top dog and positions under.
  3. Refresh myself on pregnancy. (been there, done that!)
  4. Look into mortgage insurance and stipulations for getting... ie. property up to code.
  5. Research hotel bars. And as many huge, colorful, umbrella toting drinks as possible. (Mental note: better bring husband as back up. It's been a LONG time since gone out. May need assistance walking/standing/remembering. TEee-hee!)
  6. Look at modern condos in Toronto.

And this list will grow.

I would definitely suggest bringing your DH along. You wouldn't want to to do TOO MUCH research for your story (wink,wink)...if you know what I mean. :)
