Wait! Not that kind of goal.
Yeah! That’s more like it! The kind of goal where I set a huge deadline and then sweat it out right to the end. Without getting hit by the train. I’m into that not being chopped or bashed by my unreasonable expectations.
My second book, a YA post apocalyptic novel, is half way done. My…GOAL!!!! is to have it completed before the boy–my senior in high school–graduates on June 11th. That way I can celebrate his jumping into the great unknown of adulthood without having to worry about the “new book baby” and my wonderful, lovely, intelligent, and perceptive editors can read/kill with red pen over the summer to their heart’s delight.
Back to work. And one more, ’cause I’m getting giphy with it.
