Welcome to the first edition of Goals Summary for 2018. I really liked these posts in 2017, even if I wasn’t super consistent with them. Hopefully I can do better this year.
What did I set out to accomplish last week?
- Publish 1 blog post
- Start writing Sanctified chapter 31
- Review/start The Steel Armada editsFinish reading Dark Sky by Mike Brooks
- Finish listening to The Children of Men by P.D. James
How’d I do?
I published one post last week, my traditional Blog Remodel post and year in review post. That was an easy goal to reach, thank goodness. I wrote just under 300 words for Sanctified, which isn’t much, but it’s better than nothing. I did not even look at The Steel Armada, I’ll get into why a bit later. I finished reading Dark Sky, as well as The Children of Men AND Wishful Drinking. So, lots of reading/listening done last week! Check out the What I’m Reading page for an updated list, or follow me on Goodreads for updates in real time.
I also decided that I’ll be tracking my word count in these posts. Only fiction (fanfic or original) counts toward my weekly word count, blog posts do not.
Weekly Word Count: 1,600
What’s on the docket for this week?
- publish 1 book review
- finish Singull fic (tumblr give away)
- hit 1,500 words on Sanctified chapter 31
- finish listening to Shockaholic
- edit The Seasons and Lifelike, send to Madhu for work-shopping
Notice that The Steel Armada isn’t on here. I want to work on these short stories a little bit and take my time organizing and prepping The Steel Armada. I also have two give away fics that I need to finish, so either next week or the week after I’ll be ready to crack open The Steel Armada and start wading through it. Basically, I don’t want to have lingering projects that might distract me from working on the rewrites, because I know myself, and just about anything will be more enticing than drafting this book.
All right, I think that’s everything that I wanted to talk about today. I’ll post the review for The Children of Men either tomorrow or Thursday. As always, thanks for reading this far!
