"Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view build for themselves great monuments of nothing." I heard this from the mouth of a girl whose idea of a good time was indiscriminate sex and fighting. She looked back at a night of really poor judgement, and said to the other person involved, "I'm sorry." The other girl asked for an explanation. The girl replied, "There is no explanation, just excuses," then she used the above quote.
Unfortunately, when it comes to writing, I have been guilty of building monuments of nothing. I always had an excuse for not writing. Because of this, for the first time, I'm setting writing goals. I decided I will build no monuments when it comes to meeting them.
Goal 1:Finish revising and resubmit "Dreamers."
Goal 2:Finish current wip
Goal 3:Write 5 days a week (blogs and e-mails don't count)
Goal 4:Query, submit, revise,repeat
And the biggest goal: Build no monuments.
