My World Builder series will be back next Friday. But in the meantime, we are in a new month so it’s time for some new monthly goals!
I use goals to keep me focused on the big picture and get me closer to where I want to be via smaller, easier-to-manage steps.
To say July was a failure is an understatement. I am not really sure how I let the month get away from me, but it did. Far away! I managed almost none of my goals so most will be rolling over into this month.

01 Write 20,000 words of my current WIP, The Blessed
I’m sitting on an 18k outline and have done NOTHING with it. Since I failed to write 10k last month, I am going to be stricter and make this goal double.
02 Complete Main character profiles for The Blessed
In order to give myself a fighting chance at these goals, I am changing this to the main characters in my manuscript.
03 Complete relevant location settings for The Blessed
As with the above, I am going to focus on the main locations featured in book one.

04 Update at least 10 earlier blog posts
This was one of those goals I actually managed! However, there are still so many to go, as I’ve had to go back through to fix small issues such as the URL slug and the categories.
05 Update the Tutorial List links
I want to get all the sections within my Tutorial List updated and organised so that they are all active, working links

06 Reading Challenge 50 (1 books)
I don’t know why I’m struggling with this one so badly, but I am. So I am reducing my number to one a month. Maybe then I’ll actually manage it!.

07 Do (at least) 10 online courses
Another fail. I normally manage more than 10, but once again July was a fail and I only managed 7. I need to get this back up to 10, pronto!
08 Launch Newsletter
This is the goal that I was most annoyed at failing. I have been planning the damn thing for ages and had a setback with the PO Box address.
I am so close, I actually have the layout all set up, I just need to finish a few things. So by hook or by crook, this newsletter will launch in August!

Due to last month’s embarrassing fail on almost all my goals, I have removed a few and kept August at a more “manageable” level.
