October Progress and November Goals

October Wrap Up

  • Write 1000 Words (per day)
    • ACHIEVED
    • 31070 total words, 1002 words per day (average)
    • Hallelujah! I finally made one. 
    • I don’t know if it was outlining my new YA Contemporary, finishing my Magical YA, working on Fraun Book 3, the blog posts, or just video scripts that pushed me over the edge BUT I DID IT. 
    • I feel better.
  • Read 150 Pages (per day)
    • ACHIEVED
    • Boom. 14 Books, 4650 Pages. 
  • Edit 2 Chapters per day
    • ACHIEVED
    • 62 chapters edited
    • Edited my Magical YA a little. Edited Fraun Book 3 a little. The point is I MADE IT. That’s 3/3 on goals. 
  • Post at least 2 shorts to the blog
  • Post new videos to YouTube on Tuesdays
    • ACHIEVED

Some months (like September) are total chaos. I always feel terrible after missing every single one of my goals. But then there’s months like this. 

What’s my point?

DON’T GIVE UP. DON’T LET ONE BAD MONTH DEFINE YOU. KEEP WRITING.

NOVEMBER GOALS

My brain has decided the next thing I write needs to be a YA Contemporary with absolutely no fantasy or science fiction elements. I’ve tried to ignore it and work on other things. Instead, I have a full outline. 

But, it’s November. So instead of dismaying…I’m NaNoing. 

National Novel Writing Month is an online challenge.

I (and everyong one else who is doing this challenge with me) am going to write 50000 words in one month. Wish me luck!

*Because of this goal, you may notice I’m dropping my editing goal. I’ll still edit when I get a chance, but it’s not my focus!

  • Write 50000 words of the YA Contemporary in one month
  • Read 150 Pages per day
  • Post at least 2 shorts to the blog
  • Post new videos to YouTube on Tuesdays

WRITING GAMES

  • On Twitter I’m continuing with #AuthorConfession, #SmoreWords, and #TheMerryWriter
  • Over on Instagram I’m attempting to participate more on the Poetry Board, #novemberauthorwipchallenge, and #authorschallenge2019.
  • If you know of any other cool games I should be playing in September, drop them in the comments!
