Writing Goals

Blog Features & Headers (2)

The semester is here! I’m hoping to write an entire piece by December so that I can have it query ready by next semester. I’ve got about 15k of it done at this point in time and so long as I keep with my schedule (thanks Pacemaker.Plus) I should finish on time. When I look at like 500 words every few days, it certainly feels doable, especially since sometimes I have days where I write a few thousand words.

Right now, I’m noticing that I’ve flown through my outline and I’ve already drafted up to what I think my climax should be. So I’m probably going to change my climax while I unpack the rest of these scenes.

Wish me luck!

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.


  1. Erghhh. I definitely need a physical calendar. Otherwise, I just don’t write. I need to kick my butt into action. Thanks for the writing inspo!
