monthly goals, and even some of my "long term" goals. June is just around the proverbial corner and then half the year will be over. Yowza! So today, I'm going to mix Wednesday's Words with my Monthly Goal Review (cause I'm running out of month and we have a Spotlight tomorrow).
Prior Goal: 4,000 words.
Achieved: 8,539 (can I get a woot, woot!?)
Goal for new week: 7,000.
Excuses / comments: "The end" is in my field of vision and I'm amped! Of course, this particular "the end" will only lead to "the beginning" of massive revisions BUT, I'm still excited. I also challenged Heather with a deadline. We're to have to our respective drafts done by May 15th (the same drafts we worked on for the 30k challenge). We both need it, and if I can manage it, it will fall in line perfectly with my 2009 goal to have a complete draft done by May or June. What does it all mean? I have to write around 17k over the next 16 days. Given my track record with other challenges, I know I can do it.
Now for my review...
Still on track to have my WIP finished by the end of May.
Still on track for my end-of-year goals.
Read seven books.
Finished the 30k in 30 (one) days challenge on time.
Practiced reading outloud.
Reviewed my goals for April!
What didn't I accomplish?
I didn't manage to write daily, as hoped, but I've still done very well, I think.
I didn't do a book review STILL.
I didn't post a teaser.
So for May I charge myself with the following:
Finish this draft by May 15th, which will cover one of my year goals.
Read at least three books.
Write at least three Fashy Fiction prompts (I'm awful about this and awful at it).
At least one book review.
Maybe that teaser I keep talking about.
AND...the usual, i.e. blogging, commenting, learning, etc.
Woo! Glad that's over with. Please sift through all this madness as you please and add your own goals - weekly, monthly, yearly, whatev! If you'd rather just answer a question, what have you been doing this spring? How's your weather been?
