It would be great if may proved to be as successful writing-wise as April. I don't just mean in terms of work being accepted or published: I'm talking as much - if not, more - in terms of volume of writing.

I was quite pleased with how the month started - I made the deadline for an anthology, although I was not very happy with my submission. Neither were the editors - who promptly (but nicely) rejected it.

The necessity of gaining employment this month is looming very large so my time spent on writing will be severly limited. Despite this, I want to write and submit a short story every week, and also to finish my chapbook this month (or first draft of it).

I hope this strikes the right level of ambition - within reach but requiring me to exert myself.

Time will tell!

I think they sound like good goals for May. I know you have to get a job this month, but try to keep a solid 2 hours writing a day. You can't just give up on writing. Even if you change it to four hours at the weekend, make sure it is part of your life. You can do it, so make sure you keep time for it no matter what comes up.
