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.

STORIES (6)

Of course, my biggest goal for the next 3 months is getting my novel ready to submit to my editor for a developmental edit. I also want to continue with my marketing plan and some of that is reflected in writing goals.  I tried not to go goal crazy this quarter because writing, editing and revision my work in progress is a huge task.

Whew! I am exhausted just looking at the list. I know that there is a lot of work that must be done to complete these tasks in three short months. I am ready to get to and make it happen.

What are your goals? Do you do quarterly, monthly or yearly goals? I do  a combination of all three and then break them down to weekly and daily goals. It really helps to keep me on task.
