As the last day of the month comes to a close it's time to take a sit back and look over what I accomplished and what I didn't.
March has been a huge rollercoaster month for me. There have been some ups, but also some massive downs. I decided to take two weeks off of my writing, which meant my writing goals weren’t met, but it did mean that I could focus on editing and getting to find some betas for my novel.
Theres still some time to sign up if you want? Here’s the link.
I’m still overly emotional, stressed and trying to burn myself out by doing ALL THE THINGS, but it’s gotten a little better towards the end. I realised that I can only work on two books when I am writing down their first drafts and then I need to focus on one book at a time through the editing process.
What Did I Accomplish?
- I realised my way of working and created a schedule adjustment for that
- I got myself a new planner that helps me focus and only plan a number of things for the day so I dont have an endless to do list.
- My boyfriend proposed to me.
- I opened up the sign up for Beta Readers.
- I wrote a killer blurb for Missing Prince
Progress I am celebrating (even if it was small!):
- Scheduling Instagram Content 2 months in advance
- Read not one but two books and started a third!
- Concentrated on Progress Not Perfection
My brother came over from Australia, and the other down from Manchester to spend a weekend together and celebrate my engagement.
Goals That Are Growing Well
Reading: This month I managed to read Cloaked In Shadow and Fallen Empire. I also started Blood Moon.
Writing: I took a two-week break from writing but I have gotten back into it this week and plan on doing quite a bit over the weekend - but life happens and plans change so we shall see how I get on with this!
Blog: August is completely scheduled and I am looking for more guest posters for 2019. Head here and check out the guidelines if you’re interested.
Favourite Memory from the Month:
I surprised one of my work colleagues by showing them the cover of my book and telling them all about the story.
