New year, new update, and some other new stuff!
Now for the last 3.5-ish years I’ve been part of the Do You Have Goals/Big Dreams Blog Hop. Hosted by author Misha Gericke, we call it lots of things actually, but the point of the blog hop is to share at least one (crazy optional) goal and publicly hold yourself accountable to reaching it. It’s WAY more likely you’ll complete a goal if you share it. Saving face is EVERYTHING (for some of us anyways).
Interested in making your goals reality this 2017, JOIN us and take that first step! We promise you a cheering squad!
Let’s move on to see how I fared in January.
My big, sorta crazy goal through this blog hop is still going: I’m aiming to write 1 million* words. All words I have to read at some point. I hadn’t been doing that the first 2 years of this blog hop, but I had 2016 to set myself straight there.
*NOTE: I haven’t calculated where my word count is at in relation to that 1 million. I’ll see to doing that next month, have actual stats posted and all. 🙂
All-righty! What were my goals for this month…?
January 2017 goals:
start writing that YA contemp WIP I’ve been mulling over
read the 7 books I have waiting in my most recent library haul
start on some SUPER early not-spring cleaning…so winter cleaning. Sometimes I wish I lived a more minimalist lifestyle. One of these days… *grimaces at clutter*
I didn’t do the YA WIP. I decided to go the freelancing route for now. So I’ve been writing, just no writing toward that.
I didn’t read 7 books. I got 3 books completed, 2 of which I started in December. So not a lot in the reading department. Something I need to change going forward. It’s great I’m writing, but I need to round my schedule out, and I’m not time managing as well as I could honestly. Gonna change next month, promise!
Paused on the winter cleaning. Just because.
February 2017 goals:
start and finish holiday novella WIP
kick off my #ChiVamps series marathon (more deets on that later)
start to plan for A-Z challenge–have no clue what my theme will be this year…>_<
Again, doable goals if I peck away at them little-by-little, day by day. I got this, guys and gals! But in case you’re like “RIGHT” and pulling a doubting Thomas there, I invite you to come back next month and check out how my smaller goals are coming along.
