Month of November Goals

Happy November, dear friends! I hope your Halloween was spooktacular! Well, I'll just jump right into my goals.

Here is how my month of October goals panned out:
  • Recuperate from spraining my ankle Uh... It turns out that I fractured a bone in my foot. I had to wear a hideous boot for a freaking month. Luckily I'm out of the montrousity of ugliness. But I've got to rehabilitate my poor foot now. Silliness, I say
  • Read BEYONDERS: SEEDS OF REBELLION by Brandon Mull Check. Great book
  • Finish listening to DIE FOR ME by Amy Plum Super Check. I loved this book sooooo much. Read it. Now
  • If I have time, I'll edit some or all of one of my writing projects Nope, I did open up one of my projects and read the first chapter to my new roomie. She LOVED it! Just you guys wait...
  • Start my new job, love it, and learn it fast Check on all accounts
  • Find a new place to live in Salt Lake City before I'm driven mad by the long commute Check and it didn't happen soon enough. I truly was going crazy driving two hours a day.
  • Enjoy my half birthday... Check. I loveth growing old. haha
Well, I'm feeling good about my goals and hope to have success in the coming month. Here are my month of November goals:
  • Finish listening to the audio book CHIME by Franny Billingsley
  • Listen to the audio book SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater (I just got a library card and by golly I'm gonna use it--bring on the audio books. Yes!)
  • Read FINALE by Becca Fitzpatrick
  • NaNoWriMo--50K and/or finish writing my dystopian book called SPHERICAL
  • Do something social at least once a week
  • Have a super fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday *gobble gobble*
  • Be better at reading and commenting on other blogs. So sorry for being anti-blogospher-social
How did your month of October goals go? What are your month of November goals?

    Writing. Jewels.



  1. Some great goals for November! Sorry about your foot. Good luck with NaNo - you can do it!

  2. Sorry to hear you fractured your foot. :(

    Yay NaNo! I'm doing it too. It'll be great! Good luck this month.

  3. I loved Chime! I hope you do as well. :)

    1. I'm loving Chime so far. It's like a feast of imagery!

  4. I'm in for NaNoWriMo too. I still have no idea what my novel's about, but I've got a start.

    1. I'm happy that you are doing NaNo too! It's gonna be great. Good luck!

  5. Those walking-boots are horrid. I had to wear one for a number of months after my third leg surgery, and again after my fourth leg surgery some years later, when I had some of my metal hardware removed. I hope your physical therapy goes well.

    1. Oh, Carrie-Anne, that stinks. I'm sorry to hear you've had to have so many surgeries. Ugh. I hope you don't have to go through any more surgeries.

  6. Sorry about your foot! My younger brother has to wear one of those boots right now because he fractured his foot - that stinks!

    Those are some great goals and progress! Good luck with NaNo!

  7. I'm glad your foot is doing better and the boot is off. Fantastic goals! Good luck with NaNo!

  8. Sorry to hear about your foot! I hope you recover quickly. :)

    Although I love Stiefvater's writing, I didn't like Shiver. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear about your foot. Years ago I was in a leg cast and it was the pits to say the least. Glad to see you're out of it now. (: I read Amy Plum's Die For Me, but honestly I wasn't that crazy over it. If you read the next one in the series, let me know if it get better. (: Anyway, looks like you've got awesome November goals, and good luck with the rehabilitation, hope you're not in any pain.

  10. It is wonderful on the way to be suitable examine and who also verify education it he strength of mind absolutely accomplish quite a few matching.
