When I started bootcamp, my goals were:
March – finish revisions on the 2nd half of JULES
April – do a final read-through, write a synopsis and get my first batch of query letters ready
May – start sending out queries and (possibly) start on a SNI
April and May – check and check
May started off as planned, but then I got some really valuable feedback from agents and I’m currently working on a revision of JULES. My aim is to have it finished and off to readers by the end of June.
I loved doing bootcamp and having accountability, but I sort-of fell off the wagon for a bit. I wasn’t writing or editing every day like I was used to and my schedule was all out of whack. I think that made me less productive because even when I’m just tweaking scenes or skimming for filler words, I’m still moving forward.
This summer it’s back to what works!
