We’re into July so it’s time to create some more monthly goals. They help to keep me accountable and focused on what I need to get done. 🙂
Don’t worry, Monday Marketing will be back next week.
In June I originally had 13 goals, that somehow ending up becoming 15, which was a little crazy. Add to that several days of 30-50-degree C heat and I was not able to get as much done as I had planned. I managed 10 out of 15.

01 Write 10,000 words of my current WIP, The Blessed
Last month I put the word count into a detailed outline and boy was it detailed! It topped off at over 18k words. So now, it’s time to put that outline to work and start hammering through the WIP.
02 Complete all character profiles for The Blessed
I have a number of them partially written and some completed but I want to revisit them all and get a tighter grip on all the details.
03 Complete location settings for The Blessed
I have been building this world on and off, but I want to sort out more detail for the locations, at least for the settings featured in book one.

04 Update at least 10 earlier blog posts
I have (mostly) updated my posts, so now I’m working through my guest posts.
05 Create a Book Review policy
I have been thinking about doing book reviews on this blog. So, the first thing I want is to create a clear review policy.
06 Update the Tutorial List links
I made the decision to break my Tutorial List down into sections. I now need to go through all the links and fix them (this is because I’ve been changing the URL slug of my posts). I started this but it’s still ongoing.

07 Reading Challenge 50 (2 books)
I failed miserably at my reading challenge last month so I am reducing my minimum to 2 just while I get myself organised. You can see my progress on my Reading Challenge page where I list what I’ve been reading.

08 Do (at least) 10 online courses
Last month was the first time I failed to do 10 courses. So I am going to make sure I complete this in July.
09 Launch Newsletter
If you follow me on my Facebook Author Page you will know I have FINALLY got a PO Box address set up, which means I can now launch a newsletter!
There is still some additional work to do before I am ready but I am REALLY hoping to get it launched this month.
10 Design a detailed Marketing Plan
I have a lot of notes for my Marketing Plan but I want to get them solidified and create a workable timeline. Yes I know I’m not even close to needing it, but I like to be organised well before it’s needed. 😀

I’m keeping to a more manageable number of goals this month because a number of them are going to be a little intensive.
I’ve removed some of the common ones such as clearing documents, updating my Master List, adding a month of content to my Content Calendar.
I am hoping to make 2018 a cracking year for completing goals! 😀
