June #writemotivation Check In Number 2


I missed checking in last week.

It was a tough one.

I decided to put my focus where it was needed the most and my kids won. They will always win. Without going into the gory, emotional details, let’s just say we are all the better for the detour, and move on to this week.

Here are my June goals:

1. Make word count goal of 2000 words five days each week. Needless to say, I am behind on my word count goal. I do plan to catch up as fast as I can. I hope I can do that this week.

2. Complete requested project by the end of the month. I revisited the area that inspired this project over the weekend and really got some great ideas. So excited about this book! While I do hope to finish soon, it may take a little longer than I planned. I will write as long as it takes to get this done well.

3. Plan blog posts for the month and post weekly. Posts are going well for both sites – better than I expected.

4. Read & review at least two books. First review already posted for SCORPIO RACES by Maggie Stiefvater! I’ve read five books so far this month – GOAL HALF ACCOMPLISHED. Maybe I can post another review before the end of the month. Maybe.

How about you? How are you doing with your goals?

  1. Goals? They are a fuzzy destination point somewhere out on the horizon. I’m trying to get a routine going about writing and reading but after a school year’s worth of having to stick to a schedule I’m reveling in lounging in bed and playing Candy Mania on my iPad. I am attempting to send one finished project out every week, be it publisher or an agent. My TBR is becoming embarrassing and the library is either sending reminders to renew or pick up a hold. Of course, this happens every start of summer break. I’ll settle down. Yes–that would be s goal right there.

    1. ha! taking a much needed break at the beginning of summer is called a vacation, i believe. i do love the goals you mentioned – ready for submission? how exciting! i wish you well. and do keep us posted!
