The eighth month of the year is here. For teachers that it the dawn of another school year is on the horizon, for parents it means their kids are someone else’s problem, and for us dreamers it’s time for us once again to reassess our goals.
You might be tired of these blog posts about goals, but come December you’ll be thanking me for holding you accountable. So, where are you? I’ll go first.
Here are the writing goals I began the year with:
I am nowhere near where I need to be to finish and begin all of these projects, but not because of procrastination. My writing career under went some changes. In the process one of the items on my vision board came to fruition (I’ve launched my own publishing company). I did complete Tempted to Touch–it’s with the editor now undergoing inspection. That’s all that I’ve finished. I started working on a new novel and these characters will not go away. All of the projects on my list are important to me, but new projects that popped up have become my main focus. That leaves me with only one option it’s time to re-prioritize my goals. If you need to do so as well then do it.
They are your goals and flexibility is allowed. The only thing not allowed is giving up.
My revised goals now look something like this:
- I’ve begun a new novel, Children of God-set in the Dominican Republic and it will tackle the events that have transpired there this summer with regard to their anti-Haitian legislation. That can’t wait. I must finish that.
- Begin Birthright (special collaboration project)
- Finish Riches of Grace
Now it’s your turn–have you met your goals? on track to meet them? in the process of revising them?
There are only four months left in the year yes squeeze all the pulp out of 2015.
