We are almost halfway through June and I have yet to post my goals for the month. It’s been busy around here!
I didn’t quite make my goals last month. I had a goal to write 30,000 words of a new project and I made it to about 20,000. I don’t know the exact number yet because some of it is still handwritten in a notebook. (I need to type it up soon so that I can give some pages to my writer’s critique group, though!) It wasn’t as much as I would have liked but I’ll take it. I also put together a decent outline, which i’m very happy to have. In the past I’ve always been a pantser (no outline) until I was nearing the end of a novel, but in recent years I’ve had a desire for an outline to help guide my way through. They’re never detailed, but they’re more than the “starting point, middle event, ending” that I worked off of in the past. I think I also said that I wanted to send The Porcelain Doll to my beta readers and it is with them now. (Thanks guys!) In terms of reading… I think that I had a goal of eight books and I read four. Why did I get the sudden reorganize all of my belongings?
My goal is 30,000 words of the new project. Ideally I’d go for 40,000 to make up what I missed last month but I also have two outlines that I’d like to put together and those take time as well. Also, it’s been a busy month and most likely will continue to be!
I’m going to try to read eight books this month. I’m a little behind and I don’t think that eight will get me caught up but if I make that number I’ll see where I’m at in July.
What are your goals for June?
