Mid-July things started going horribly off track. August, they were pretty laughable. September, I got my act together, but my goals were pretty doomed.
Highest Priority Goals
Project A This is how I started talking about ALICIA, which released In August. Which, I guess, makes this a success.
ALCHEMY Draft 2 I wanted to be done, but must settle for 47% done.
PLANET It sits in a slush pile, being slushy. Again, I think that makes this a success.
Mid-Level Priority Goals
Exercise 5 Days a Week If I could, I did and then some. Injuries and a cold did make a couple weeks not successful.
Read COOKIES AND SCREAM (yup) 2 more books TBA (started ZOMBIE MOON, but didn’t finish) VAMPIRE ACADEMY: SHADOW KISSED (yes) COFFIN HILL (nope) RAT QUEENS 1 & 2 (almost done 1) GOTHAM ACADEMY 1 (yes)
Keep up with the comics Yes-ish. There’s a few SILKs (5-7) that I need to read. All other currently following series are up to date. Bonus: This goal will be easier now that my town will have a comic shop!
Visit 3 ROWers for my check-in day. Nope. I was horrible all summer. I’m trying to be better.
WIPpet Wednesdays See ROW80
Additionally: SUNLESS was published. I finished side reads A WINTER WRONG and THE STORYBOOK OF LEGENDS. I started pre-writing for YELLOW. I had a wonderful summer with my kids.
I’m sure I’m forgetting something, because I’m rushing to write this. See, I found this 13 week goals thing. And starting it yesterday puts it in perfect alignment to end when ROW80 Round 4 does (not that I did that one purpose). And I gave myself some crazy (but hopefully achievable) goals. And I’m not done my work today. My father-in-law called me three times and all the furniture chaos his move activated hasn’t settled yet, but it needs to because a week from tomorrow will hopefully be my daughter’s birthday sleepover… Oh, the house is such a mess!
So, I’m off to make up a college, nursing home, and mechanic shop. Then, I’ll be trying to beat the clock (bedtime being the deadline) and getting everything else done.
Got any time to spare? Put it in my cup?
