Goal Review February 2018

Posted February 28, 2018 by Lynn E. O'Connacht in Goals / 0 Comments


Last Month's GoalI Want to Read:

  • Welcome to Bordertown by Various Authors
  • The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson
  • On the Edge of Gone by Corinne Duyvis (reread)
  • Stranger by Sherwood Smith and Rachel Manija Brown (reread)

I Want to Write:

  • I juuuuuuuust want to finish this booooooook and rewrite the ending that is aaaaaaaaaall universe. T_T
  • Also if I could get started on one of the fairytale retellings faintly bouncing in my brain that would be terrific
  • Also the short stories bouncing around in my head. If I could not have a zillion taking up space, that would be good, please and thank you, brain.

I have accomplished ALL THE THINGS OMG!

Okay, no. Fine. I did not manage to get started on the fairytale retellings or the short stories, but EVERYTHING ELSE I ACCOMPLISHED AND IT WAS AMAZING.

I finally finally finally finished the first DemiPrincess book. I still don’t know quite what I want to do with it. I expect I won’t until book 2 is in revision, to be honest. But it’s finished in the sense that it’s at the stage where I’m happy to consider whether to aim at traditional publishing or to stick with indie. Finally!

And I read a ton. As I sit here, writing this, I’ve managed to read 12 books! Which is 1 less than last month, but also one of them is a chunkster and last month I read no chunksters at all, so… And I read all the books on my goals list. :O :O :O :O

So. Yeah. In that sense it was a good month. Considering I also started (and so far have trouble keeping on top of) a short college program, job applications, discovering baking, and various nonfiction projects, and dayjob work, I am very pleased. One day I will look at what I do and find it impressive instead of sighing at all the ways in which I could have done more if only. Today is not that day.

Today, as I write this, also, I will keel over and sleep in a little bit. But hey I’m managing to get this post written up on time. That’s also a good bonus! GO ME!
