Final Summer Update on Goals

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Last month I updated my goals. This month is the last of the summer goals. So … how did I do? Well, let’s take a look!

Here are the goals from last month:

  1. Edit and rewrite second draft of F2R
  2. Publish EoM (July 31st)
  3. Continue on collaboration with M.K. and K.C.
  4. Complete outline to Fallen and rewrite (AGAIN)
  5. Revisit Fated (Ithia) to take notes for rewrites and prepare for querying
  6. Revisit BA and restructure as necessary.
  7. Continue helping kids to read and strengthen reading skills.
  8. Finish backlog for reviews (9 left).
  9. Finish outline of DS52614.
  10. Continue having family adventures!

Here is my progress:

  1. Edit and rewrite second draft of F2R — This is actually going to be done by the end of this (August) month.
  2. Publish EoM (July 31st)   The party for the release is still going on! If you would like to stop by, I’d love to have ya!
  3. Continue on collaboration with M.K. and K.C. — This is still going! I’ve finally started writing my parts! Yay!
  4. Complete outline to Fallen and rewrite (AGAIN)
  5. Revisit Fated (Ithia) to take notes for rewrites and prepare for querying — Actually, pending not so good remarks from one of my bod writing buddies, I sent this to some alpha readers to get some thoughts on where I need to go back and rethink. I’ve gotten some awesome feedback and will begin notes on an additional rewrite soon.
  6. Revisit BA and restructure as necessary. — I’m currently in the process of this. I’m taking notes and brain storming ideas on how to END the book. :) So, soon I can mark this off.
  7. Continue helping kids to read and strengthen reading skills.    My kids have done amazing over the summer, but since school starts early this year (next week actually) we’ve made the decision to back off for the rest of the summer.
  8. Finish backlog for reviews (9 left). — I’ve actually added a book. But I have 9 again!
  9. Finish outline of DS52614. — I’m waiting to buy a novel writing/outlining software to do this.
  10. Continue having family adventures! — of course this is an ongoing one!

So, here are my goals for the next three months (through November) as school is starting and my productivity will drop again . . . a lot:

  1. Edit and rewrite second draft of F2R.
  2. Send F2R to beta readers.
  3. Continue on collaboration with M.K. and K.C.
  4. Take notes, organize, and rewrite Fated.
  5. Finish BA’s rewrite
  6. Finish backlog for reviews (9 left).
  7. Finish outline of DS52614.
  8. Find time for me to relax (don’t laugh).

I’ll still update my progress on each month! If it’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s I do better with goals and setting deadlines for myself. So, keep an eye out for September’s update!
