New Video: Update on my Goals

Add heading (4)NEW VIDEO: Goals, Progress,& Books I Read

BIG NEWS

I finished the 3rd draft of my novel and shipped it off to the editor. Okay, so I actually emailed it, but “shipped” has more impact. That was my big goal for the summer and I finished it.

I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Trying not to get too comfortable with that feeling because I am sure that it will return when my manuscript is returned.

One of the other goals that I completed in the month of August was to read 7 books. I didn’t think it was going to happen because of my heavy writing schedule.  I went on a rambling tangent at the end of the video and listed all of the books that read.

 

I did meet most of my July and August Goals. I made progress on the goals I did not complete, so I count that as a win.

Newsflash… New Video Topics

I am super excited to share my new video plans. I am branching out and adding new topics to my youtube channel. The majority of my videos will continue to focus on writing, reading, and encouraging others in their journey but why stop there? I want to bring you videos related to other aspects of my life as well.

I am striving to find a balance between my writing life and personal life. I love writing and this year I choose to start treating it like a job. The downside of this is that I fall into the habit of being in a constant state of work and not taking the time to do other things I love. Ultimately, this leads to burnout and loss of productivity.

Hense, the addition of new videos related to productivity, journaling, cooking, art, craft, and even a few haul videos. As a matter of fact, the first Haul video is here. Check it out!

 

 

Next week will be a follow-up video to the haul, featuring how I used the product in my haul. Also in the works is a three-part video series on bullet journaling and how I use it for daily productivity and for writing life. If you are not bullet journaling this is the perfect time to start.

I would love to know what type of videos and topics you would like to see covered! I will be posting occasional polls on twitter allowing you to help choose the videos and topics. You can find a follow me on twitter @authoraprillea
