July (writing) goals

I only have about five weeks of summer vacation left before my day job starts up again.

I would like to finish/polish the short story I am working on. I need another 2000 words to make it to my 10k word goal for this one. Doable. Then I’d like to submit to my publisher.

I would like to get some serious edits done on my coauthored novel. I’d say the rough draft is finished, but it might need an additional scene or two for clarification. This is the main work I want to get done.

I would also like to get started on my official book 2, which is the sequel to The Protector. Ideas are still percolating, though, so I think I’m not ready to write yet. I’m putting this one on the Fall back burner for now.

On the “secretarial” side, I need to overhaul my website and check out foreign language rights in my contract. I’d like to send The Protector off to a German publisher. I can’t remember what my contract says. 

On the personal side, I still haven’t been to the pool or the lake and I have a paintball coupon about to expire. And I would like to lose five pounds before the day job starts up again.
