July 2018 Goals

How is your summer going? As I write this, we’re in the middle of a two-day heat wave with a heat advisory. I’m happy I can be inside all day. There are some days I really appreciate my job.

I managed to do almost all of my goals.

  • Outline Cinderella retelling Done! Plus doing another outline!
  • Start hardcore research for WWI Done!
  • Finish Rock of Ages draft 1, edit and prep to send to beta-readers Done! And sent it to the beta-readers
  • Finish editing He Leadeth Me and send to proofreaders Done!
  • Start figuring out Christmas story ideas for Christmas collection (optional) Done!
  • Perfect the songs in the new piano book Not done, but I had a reason for it. My wrists hurt too much to play songs with lots of octaves, so I started working on Un Sospiro by Liszt instead.
  • Finish reading and review at least 3 books Done!

As for my goals for July, they are a little more simple since I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo again.
