Monthly Goals August/September 2014

Monthly Goals. The text 'monthly goals' underneath a scroll with a key on it. A look back at my goals of the month.

And that’s the end of August and almost the first week of September gone! Back to day job work I have gone. ^_^

I Want to Read:

  • Blackwood by Gwenda Bond
  • Pantomime by Laura Lam
  • Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon
  • Playing Tyler by T. L. Costa
  • Stolen Songbird by Danielle Jensen
  • Feather Bound by Sarah Raughley
  • Essence by Lisa Ann O’Kane

I Want to Write:
– at minimum 1 chapter of A Promise Broken
– rework at minimum one scene from the Space Ghosts tale

I made everything! Except for the chapter of A Promise Broken, but I got distracted by another (and supposedly single-month) project and I got several chapters of the Space Ghosts done, so that’s still not too shabby. I didn’t get a whole lot more than this done, though, and I’m not entirely sure why not which bothers me. Still, I’m reasonably happy with the progress I’ve made on things.

For September I’m going to stick to keeping things fairly simple.

I Want to Read:
– Earthrise by M.C.A. Hogarth
– Unbound and Free by Becca Lusher
– Solitary Star by Clare K.R. Miller
– The Revenge of Kaivalya by Sumana Khan

I Want to Write:
– this dratted collection of train-stories already so I can publish it in the last quarter of the year ><
– rework at minimum 1 chapter from the Space Ghosts
– rework 1 scene of A Promise Broken

Since I have a delightfully massive buffer for A Promise Broken at present, I’m going to go ahead and scale that book’s goal down a little for September. Just a touch. I want/need to focus on the other two projects at the moment. ^_^ (I’m soooooo sloooooooow nowadays.) It’ll be a pretty interesting month to be sure, but hopefully it’ll be a good one too. ^_^ I’ve got plenty of books to look forward to at least. ^_^ The day job is also starting up again, which is also nice. There have been some changes in the way things are run, so I’m not sure how it’ll affect my hours yet. Hopefully not too badly. (But then I was hoping that the dental woes would be on the home stretch by now and… they’re kind of not. Ugh. I would like that to stop hovering over me now, so onwards we go.)
