Month of June Goals


Well, guys and girls, I'm really glad I'm posting my goals on my blog. It's helping me to accomplish them. I'd suggest you do likewise, for sure.

Well, here's how my month of May goals went:
  • Go on a much needed vacation to Washington State Check and Check
  • Give myself some R&R for two weeks before I doing anything related to writing Check. I did get sick the week I was supposed to start editing again, so I technically took three weeks off. But then I had a bout with editor's block (writer's block but only when editing). I'm finally back in the game now.
  • Read The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter Check and Check. I loved it so much that I've already finished its sequel, Goddess Interrupted. My holy crap, this series is incredible. Read it! Now!
  • Catch up on blog commenting Check but this is an ongoing goal.
Well, on and upwards I go. *Drum Roll*

Here are my Month of June goals:
  • Read The Mortal Instruments: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
  • Complete an edit of my wip: BOUND
  • Hand off BOUND to one more round of betas
  • Beta a friend's book--Ashley, I'm so proud of you!
  • Continue forward with my no sweets diet. I've done 12 days for 21. Woot!
  • Exercise three times a week
Well, what are your Month of June goals? Or what's new in your life?

Writing. Jewels.

    I'm participating in BuMoWriMo in hopes of knocking out a large portion of my next book.

    1. I've heard about BuMoWriMo. I'll have to participate in that next year. For now, I'll eagerly await NaNoWriMo! I was a part of the fun last November and actually finished a book in the month. Nice. Well, Alex good luck with your writing. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. Some great goals there. I got about 80% through with City of Fallen Angels (which I thought was going to be Simon's story and not just a continuation of Jace/Clary angst) and quit. I have no interest in reading further. But I am enjoying to steampunk Shadowhunter stories.

    1. I'm only a few chapters into COFA. I like the storyline, but am worried it is going to be a little too steamy for my liking. But I can skip over those parts. My sister finished it and loved it. I'll see how it goes. I like the Steampunk genre. Don't think I could ever write one, though.

      Keep on writing!

    1. I could definitely be better with being on track. Ugh! This poor body of mine just gets so tired. But, alas, I push through. :D

  4. I have two major goals in June: (1) edit SHARING HUNTER, YA novel; (2) write curriculum for a church camp I'm involved in. If I get those two done, I'll be in good shape!

    Great job on your goals, Julia!

  5. A vacation to Washington eh? As an Oregonian, I inevitably approve of this.

    This month is going to be crazy, and it's all related to writing! Camp Nanowrimo, Editing, Betaing for others, all that great stuff. Oh, while doing the freelance work. Well, this is what I signed up for when saying I would be a full time writer. Good thing we love it!
