July Writing Goals, Update #1

To remind myself and everyone else, these are my goals for the month:

  1. Finish the first draft of SA/get to at least 80 000 words
  2. Work on re-working the plot of GBaMD to rewrite
  3. Prepare for editing SA – research techniques and whatnot
  4. Keep this blog active and get my Instagram going again
  5. Be kind to myself (especially if I don’t get this all done)

Goal #1

I’m at 49,715 words (423 for the week), I had a long week of work and family issues, so I didn’t get too much done unfortunately. Sooo, hopefully next week is better! πŸ˜€

Goal #2

I actually have done some plotting for GBaMD, I even wrote them out. So far I have changes for the beginning, not so much the entire plot, but I’ve fixed so much that I didn’t quite like before. πŸ™‚


Goal #3

I have not done any of this yet… haha

Goal #4

I’ve been keeping this blog pretty darn active and I’m proud. I want to continue posting every two days, though I may change it to every three days, but we’ll see. I also started posting on instagram again (I have three new posts up!) and I have a pretty good queue lined up for it!

Goal #5

I feel like I’ve been doing a pretty good job at being kind to myself, though I do feel a bit guilty for not starting goal 3 or writing much. I do my best to remind myself that it’s okay and just because I didn’t do it yet, doesn’t mean I can’t or won’t.


What about you? Got any goals for the month? Are you making them? Do you have sel-compassion strategy for missed-goals?
