I need some new writing goals. I initially had two, and I completed one.
New Writing Goals:
1. Compile a set of 15-20 poems that can be used as a writing sample.
2. Submit poems to 12 different literary journals/magazines.
Why these goals? The first one is because I'd like to apply to an MFA program. All of them ask for a sample of your poetry, so I need to have something ready. They don't usually ask for 20, but I have at least two schools in mind that focus specifically on writing for children/young adults and I figure I'll need a different set of poetry for those schools.
The other goal is because I don't submit my work enough places. Even if all 12 of them reject me, it's still better than never submitting anywhere, right?
Do you have writing goals?
