That said, today is the last Friday before the end of June, so I thought I'd do a post on how I've been doing on my goals lately. The colored sentences are my comments.
Read 75 books.
Behind on this, mainly because of the bad start I had to the year.
Read more William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and other classics.
Will get to this as soon as I've finished Les Miserables. I'm three quarters of the way through, but it's taking long because I'm reading bit by bit.
Research relevant time periods and facts for various works in progress.
Haven't started on any works needing research. And once again, for everything I say that's behind, it's because of the first four months not being productive.
War of Six Crowns 4
Postponed until completion of Wo6C3 rewrite.
Optional: One other on my to-do list
Working on a non-fiction book about writing just to give me something to work on if the fiction doesn't feel like coming out.
Opsies and Lysties
Optional: One other on my To-Do List.
This will probably be one of the three books listed in Edits because I still need to rewrite them all.
Postponed due to rough draft not being suitable for rewrites.
Rewrite not started.
Rewrite not started.
Will be self publishing all of my books for the foreseeable future, but will update on each book's status:
War of Six Crowns 3
Book being drafted again due to not being suitable for editing.
Birds vs Bastards
In process of being prepped for publishing before the end of the year.
Any two of the “Edits” projects.
War of Six Crowns: The Heir’s Choice
Being prepped for publishing in October.
Make a point of visiting every follower and commenter on both main blogs.
Working on this, but probably will put this on the back burner.
Weekly posts on my War of Six Crowns Blog.
Not yet, since life in general is keeping me from regularly posting on any of my blogs.
Weigh 65kg by end March.
Maintain weight for the rest of the year.
Obsolete, since my new diet means I can't really pick up weight for as long as I stay on it.
Do more exercise in general.
Trying to walk more and play tennis, although the rainy winter here puts a damper on those plans.
Eat healthily. I.E. The minimum refined carbs.
This I am doing. Since I'm eating NO refined carbs.
Do other arts. E.G. Paint. Needlepointing.
Doing needlepointing and crocheting at the moment. Want to paint, but the light's bad this time of the year.
Get involved with people with similar interests to me.
Got involved with a group in my church, so at least we have our faith in common.
Get back to singing regularly.
Nope. And this is probably the one frustrating me the most.
So yeah... Even optimistically, I'm not ever going to catch up on most of these things. And I'm not going to push myself to. But what I will do is check up on myself at the end of the year to see exactly how far I managed to get with everything.
How are your goals going?
