Goal Review September 2018

Last Month's Goal

I Want to Read:

  • A Slip of the Keyboard by Terry Pratchett

I Want to Write:

  • 5,000 words of fiction

Setting my goals ridiculously low turned out to be a good thing in the end because I actually managed to complete them! Barely, but I did! Well, no. That’s not fair. I barely managed to finish my reading goal because I’ve been in a reading slump and most of what I’ve read this month I had to force myself to read. I sat down yesterday to make my way through the final part of A Slip of the Keyboard and it was a struggle. But I managed!

Writing was far more effective and productive as I ramped up the revisions for Thrushbeard, now in possession of an actual title, an actual cover, an actual release date and pretty much anything else you could think of that a book release could need. Probably. So that goal I kind of blew out of the water. Unless you think rewriting from scratch doesn’t count in which case I still made it because of all the new stuff I added but it isn’t nearly as impressive.

Thanks, month of terribleness. I appreciate the fact that you were terrible and disappointing. But I shall continue to put on a brave face and keep going because, really, what else can I do.
