It’s that time again, where I check on my progress and see if I’ve actually managed to have a successful month.
I do love “ticking” things off my list 😀
Last Month’s Goals
01 – Finish Outline of The Blessed (book 1) – PARTIALLY DONE – Started strong but lost track due to some family dramas and didn’t get a nice block of time that I needed. But I’m close!
02 – Brainstorm The Blessed (book 2) – DONE – I actually managed to do some brainstorming for book 2 while doing the dishes! Got loads of ideas and a good number of big plot points noted down.
03 – Write Flash Fiction piece – DONE – Written and submitted and I was really happy with the piece! It will be uploaded on this blog in January 🙂
04 – Write 1 Month’s blog posts – DONE – Not only did I write 1 month’s worth of blog posts, but I have also fully planned out blog posts for November and December and have several written!
05 – Write Guest Post – DONE – this was for StoryWars and you can read it here.
06 – Read one book – DONE – I read and reviewed Eternal Shadow by author Trevor B Williams.
07 – Complete required tasks – DONE – We have now purged a lot of items and organised several areas of the house 🙂
08 – Set up New Sales Platform –DONE – While I’m still uploading all my products, I set up shop with nuMONDAY since Etsy’s changes have not been favourable.
The sharp-eyed amongst you will realise I originally had only 7 goals in October, but I added an 8th partway through the month. So 7 out of 8 goals is pretty damn awesome!
This Month’s Goals
01 – Finish Outline for The Blessed book 1
This definitely needs to be completed by the end of this month.
02 – Start Outlining The Blessed book 2
I’m hoping to use book 2 in the 85K Writing Challenge, but to do so, I need an outline so I need to at least get the bare bones done.
03 – Complete all blog posts for the year
I’ve been able to get so much more completed on this blog since cutting down how many times I blog in a week. So with much of November and December prepped, I want to get them all completed.
04 – Read 1 book
I have some things happening in November so I’m back to limiting myself to just reading one book.
05 – Go through all Artwork and purge
I need to go through all my artwork…and there’s a lot! Some of the originals I want to keep, others I am happy just to keep a digital copy.
06 – Try new hair treatment
My hair has been neglected recently so I want to try some new treatments to give it a boost.
07 – Sort all Stock
My stock has gone a bit haywire and is spread over several locations due to some changes I’ve made in my Craft room. I need to give it another overhaul.
08 – Create 10 new items
I got side-tracked and stopped adding new items to my shops, I need to get back into the swing of making new products.
