We are now in a new month, so that means, another set of goals I have set. Last month I only completed 8 out of 12 goals. Over half, but not as many as I’d like.
I need to remember to check my timeframe to make sure I actually have the capacity to complete goals before I make them.
See, it’s a constant learning curve.
My goals are not just writing goals, because I have other projects.

01 Use this month to complete the 85K challenge
Due to some unexpected things rising in March, I really fell behind. However the challenge has a 30-day catch up, so I really want to complete the 85K challenge.
02 Loosely sketch out ideas for the sequel to Dark Hart
Not happy that I had to bounce this again, but it WILL be done in this month. Maybe.
03 Add another 50 scenes to my Master List
I have been able to add many more than 30 a month, so I’m upping my minimum to 50. This is the spreadsheet that I am listing all my 1000s of Dark Hart scenes on. Once it’s completed I will be able to roughly plot all the books in the series.
04 Clear through another 400 documents
Continuing to organise all my writing documents, I want to do another 400 this month. I am slowly starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

05 Update at least 10 earlier blog posts
I am still updating my old posts, giving them better tags, titles and header images as well as doing an overhaul of the text.
06 Plan all blog posts for this month
Using my Content Calendar I want to continue to plan my blogs one whole month at a time. So far it’s working well. Just need to remain consistent.
07 Sort new categories and update posts to match them
My blog overhaul keeps throwing up new things I need to address and the category issue is one I want to get sorted quickly.

08 Reading Challenge 50 (3 books)
I have had no time to read which is just awful! I am going to schedule some reading time as I have several ebooks and even more paperbacks that are just waiting to be read.
09 Do yoga regularly
Since moving I have fallen out of old routines, including jogging and doing yoga. While I’d love to say I’ll start jogging again this month, that’s not going to happen. But I at least want to start looking after myself and do yoga regularly again.

10 Do (at least) 10 online courses
I have enjoyed setting this goal as I usually do more than 10 courses a month, but it is good to set a minimum. I’ve gained so much from these courses.

11 Look into Newsletters / starting an email list
I need to continue to face my anxiety over trying new things, and so I want to consider starting a newsletter. I don’t want to jump in without some planning though. 🙂

12 Make 10 new items
I need to really make a push with my business and I want to increase my product lines.
13 Sort paperwork ready for tax time
I do not want to get caught out scrabbling for my paperwork when it comes time to do taxes.

I don’t expect to get all these done but I aim for at least half, but preferably more.
