Halfway Through the Year—2017 Goals Check-In

monthlycheck-in

 

So…it’s come to this. The halfway through the year goals check-in. Things aren’t…going as well as I’d like.

These were my goals at the beginning of the year:

Get a handle on the negativity that’s seems to be plaguing me.

Do what I can to affect positive change in the world–even if they’re only small things.

Write day and night like I’m running out of time.

However…this is how I’m currently feeling.

Because everything is chaotic and scary and I’d like that shit to stop now. So…I’m looking for volunteers for this:

I’m desperately hoping that my end of the year check-in is a hell of a lot better. And I’m also hoping Deelylah, Torrance, and Jess are having a better time of it.

Monthly Goals Check-In: May 2017

This month…

I am so done with it, and I don’t even know where it all went. Much of it has been lost to stress, anxiety, and depression. This does not make for good goal fulfillment.

Let’s take a look at the goals I set for May, shall we?

Revise and re-release at least one of my stories that I have the rights back on. (Nope. But I did get an utterly gorgeous new cover that I can’t wait to share.)

Progress on RP. (Yes.)

Progress on TFAD (If we can count progress as I have more of an idea for this thing than I did last month, we can call it yes.)

Complete 7 client edits. (4 down, 3 to go – but I still have a few days left.)

Complete all May blog posts. (Yep.)

Progress on 4 client websites. (3 out of 4.)

Complete the 7 sewing projects I owe people. (1 out of 7, but I still have a few days.)

Begin deconstructing and reconstructing wedding dress. (Dress is deconstructed and is in the process of being reconstructed.)

Read some more. (Yep. Holy shit, Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell is bizarre but delightful. 

Okay, for June I’m going to:

Do all the June blog posts.

Finish the wedding dress and make a flower girl dress.

Progress on RP

Progress on TFAD

Revise and re-release at least one of my stories that I have the rights back on.

Go on our annual writers retreat and laugh myself stupid and write all the words.

Write a wedding ceremony.

Go check out the other bloggers and see how they did. Hopefully, it was better than me. Jess and Deelylah.

Monthly Goals Check-In: April 2017

Man… this has been a month. A long, weird, disquieting month.

Sadly, my mother-in-law died recently, so much of this month has been dealing with grief, and frustration, and anger at a certain family member on that side who needs to be throat punched. But that’s life.

Weirdly, I managed to accomplish quite a few things. This was my list.

Finish the client edits I have scheduled. (Yep. Scheduled 3. Edited 6.)

Complete all April blog posts. (Yep.)

Finish up work on 2 of the (now) 5 websites I’m working on. (Finished one, progress on two and waiting for client response on both.)

Knit 3.5 pussyhats (Yepper.)

Progress on new book and Mist & Stone. (Progress on new book. Zilch on Mist and Stone rewrite.)

Continue with the Organized Home Challenge (Yes and also no. We’re still cleaning and purging but not in order of the list.)

Finish sorting stuff for donation. (Still sorting. Still donating.)

Sew more journal covers and open Etsy site. (Nope.)

I also completed a bunch of things that weren’t on the list.

I proofed, reformatted, and reuploaded 6 of my books.

I did a podcast with Focus on Fantasy Romance about editing.

I updated my blog links.

I cleaned up my blog tags and categories.

I also read 6 books from my TBR pile.

All things considered, I did pretty well this month.

Okay, so…my goals for May are:

Revise and re-release at least one of my stories that I have the rights back on.

Progress on RP.

Progress on TFAD

Complete 7 client edits.

Complete all May blog posts.

Progress on 4 client websites.

Complete the 7 sewing projects I owe people.

Begin deconstructing and reconstructing wedding dress.

Read some more.

Be sure to see how the other bloggers did. Jess, Deelylah, Torrance, and Gwen.
