September 2018 Goals

Tomorrow it will have been a year. One year since I married the love of my life. Time flies very quickly, doesn’t it? My August was busy, but very good! I got a lot of work done both in the house and also on my books.

  • Go through HLM proofreader edits and send to formatters DONE! And proof copy ordered!
  • LHaR edit #4 and send to proofreaders Done!
  • Edit #1 of Christmas stories, send to beta-readers, and then edit #2 Done!
  • Finish writing The Haven of Rest Done! And I can’t wait to work on editing it.
  • Work on book covers with Perry I ended up needing to find a new cover designer, but we have the book covers almost figured out! Be watching for a cover reveal soon.
  • Work on novella release Done!
  • Polish up the first 4 pages of Un Sospiro and start working on pages 5 and 6 This is one thing I didn’t get much done on. I have the first 4 pages fairly well polished and started working on page 5, but not much with page 6.
  • Exercise at least 3 times per week Done!

September Goals

And for this month, I have a slightly shorter list, but some of these things will take some time.

  • LHAR final edits and send to formatter
  • Work on Orphans of the West blog tour
  • Christmas story edits #3-5
  • ROA edits #3-4
  • Get upstairs bedroom ready to paint
  • Work on pages 6 and 7 of Un Sospiro
  • Exercise at least 3 times per week

What are your goals this month?

A New Chapter

Today is the first day of September. Where did the time go? Tomorrow I start a new chapter in my life. The title? Married Woman. I’m a bit scared, but not really nervous. I know God’s been in control of this entire journey and He will continue to be as long as Bill and I keep Him at the center of our lives.

That being said, I’d like to reflect a bit on August and then move on to my September goals. There will be quite a few pictures.

August Goals:

  • Make veil (DONE!)
  • Make decorations (DONE!)
  • Pack everything (DONE!)
  • Move most things to Bill’s (DONE!)
  • Read some marriage-y books (DONE!)
  • Read a fun book (DONE! I actually read more than one)
  • Finalize Gestern blog tour (DONE!)
  • Sew a couple other things (undecided as to what they are yet) (DONE!)

It’s been a busy, but productive month. The best part is that everything went smoothly and here, the day before the wedding, I am barely stressed. Praise God!

  • Edit Sing the Wondrous Story
  • Edit He Hideth My Soul
