I'm going to start off this post with some questions up front:
So what are your Month of May Goals? How does goal setting help you when it comes to writing? What are your methods of setting goals? Do you write them down, have them in your head, or tell someone? Or maybe all of the above?
Having started to blog about my goals has been beneficial. Because I put them out there for the world to see, it gives me that extra push to ACCOMPLISH them.
Well, here's how I did with my Month of April Goals:
Have a super awesome 30th Birthday!Check Check Check! What a fabulous day! Try not to get depressed for not being married by my 30th Birthday. Check. I actually feel supercool being 30! Woot! Finish Pandemonium by Lauren OliverSuper Check. What a super great book. Can't wait to have the cliffhanger resolved. Finish a revision of my book, FÉLICITÉ FOUNDCheck-o-my-Check. Finished it just a couple days ago. I took my time to make this revision COUNT! *BAM*
- Complete an edit of my WIP, BOUND No Check but I don't care. It was more important to work on my first book.
Will not buyany clothing ---> I'm going to say I half accomplished this. All I bought was a supercool Doctor Who tshirt. And it is beautiful. Read Carrier of the Mark by Leigh FallonCheck. An enjoyable book with a great premise. And it takes place in Ireland so it has to be good, right? Bring on the hot Irish accents.
Now on to my Month of May Goals:
- Go on a much needed vacation to Washington State with my brother's family (Time to have some quality time with my nephews and niece)
- Give myself some R&R (Say 2 weeks) before I dive back into anything related to writing
- Beta a beta's book
- Read The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
- Catch up on checking out blogs in the blogoshere (I've pretty much sucked at this in April because of revisions--Sorry guys)
