I'm finding the need to set some goals for my new MS. Thanks to my terrific critique partner who is always setting really hard goals for herself, I'm feeling like I need to do the same. I won't be staying up until 2:00 in the am to reach them though.
My first goal is to finish all of my character profiles and all my settings by the end of July. Then in August I can finish my research and be ready to start a rough draft in September.
If I don't have goals, I tend to just doodle along, flaking off in all directions.
