Spring Cleaning Writer Challenge

Hi! I was tagged by the charming & very talented author H.L. Burke for this springtime challenge! In spite of the fact that I find the idea of spring cleaning reprehensible, here's my post! 1. Dust-bunnies and Plot-bunnies: Reorganize Your Writing Goals (Or Make New Ones)   My Big Fat Goal is to get my current novel-in-progress into shape so I can query agents and sign with a really great one by the end of 2018! Easy as pie...I wish! 2. Which Stage Are You At? Expound! a. Remodeling layouts (planning the story) b. Painting the walls in colorful hues (writing) c. Polishing the windows and scrubbing the floors and putting flowers in vases (editing) d. Blueprints (not to the cleaning or remodeling yet… just drawing up plans for the very beginning inklings of a story) e. Some combination of those things (cleaning out a closet) As usual, I’m doing   a. and b. at the same time…and a little c.   Which may explain why it takes me so long to write
