Okay, so new year, new goals and all that. The biggest goal is while I’m still doing freelance work for others, but I’m making a concerted effort to put my writing first. It bums me out, but that’s not what’s been happening for the last year or two. And that needs to change.
So, I’ve been writing every day. I’m experimenting with what time of day works best. But I’m doing it–even with the other projects, I’m still adding to my story every day, and I’m super excited about that.
So this month, I’ve edited an 80K book, a 73K book, a 32K book, and some other minor odds and ends for peeps. I’ve also prepped five 80K (avg.) novels and half of an 800 page book for audio.
I’ve also finished up a number of (late) Christmas gifts and client orders, and I’m working on other late gifts.
I didn’t get all of my blog posts, unfortunately. We had to put Morrighan, our kitty down, the night before the post was due, and I just couldn’t do it. So, in the interest of self-care, I tapped out. I might eventually write it, because it bugs me to leave stuff undone, but I’m not going to beat myself up if I don’t.
Self-care is another thing I’ve ben getting better at this year. I’m making far more of an effort to do it than I have in the past. I’ve also gotten back into the habit of my daily gratitude journal.
So, my goals for February are:
- Continue to make daily progress on the WIP.
- Finish all scheduled blog posts.
- Finish all scheduled audio preps.
- Finish all scheduled edits.
- Finish the remaining Christmas presents.
- Practice good self-care.
- Have a blast with Jess when she comes to stay with me for two weeks!
