InaDWriMo: Alice’s writing goals

i-f875c0b07d9b3cb6229668554781b35a-alice.jpgOkay, I’m in. I seriously need to get my writing in gear, and even though I’m still trying to do the tips from AFNFM, I’m finding I need an additional push to actually put fingers to computer and do anything other than email. So here are my InaDWriMo goals:

  • Write the first draft of the Gender Paper from my dissertation, to be submitted to this journal CFP.
  • Draft a paper on gender theory and literature outside of engineering education, with a colleague.
  • Revise and resubmit this paper.
  • I’m not sure how many words that will be, but I’ll try to work it out and post a little meter thingie like Dr. Brazen Hussy has.

    I don’t have a cute kid to share photos of, but here’s a photo of my jack ‘o’ lantern… :-)

    Welcome to the writing club. For the next month, we try to push writing to the top of the daily to-do list.

    (right after commenting on blogs, in my case!)

    I made myself a little chart that keeps track of the word counts on my three ongoing manuscripts. I imagined exponential curves, each in a different inspirational color, soaring towards something reasonably submittable. Two of the three have not changed *at all.* The third has gone from 6180 words to 6173 to 6161 to 6170. I know I have made real progress on this one, but it is not exactly inspirational….
