Okay, so I didn’t really write down any goals specific to this month. BUT I did say I would write daily this year. I told myself I would write a minimum of 100 words every day no matter what. An addendum was added to that – that if I missed a day because of a flare-up or some family stuff, as long as that 100 words was made up for during that week, it still counted.
I have managed to do that. I’ve written every day this month. What’s even better? Even though there were days I only got that 100 words, I still wrote over 13K this month. Soooo YAY! I know for some writers, this isn’t ground-breaking, but for me, who barely wrote last year (for many reasons), it is HUGE!
Seriously, I was blown away by the monthly total when I looked at it because I didn’t expect that I’d written that much. So I am really, really happy!
I did all the scheduled blog posts for January, so that was awesome. Wrapped up a lot of day job stuff. Didn’t freeze to death – close call with “feels like” -50 through this week. o.O So all in all, I’m very proud of my January.
So, now, my goals for February:
- Daily writing. 100 words minimum
- Complete Stealing Time
- All scheduled blog posts
- Complete all day-job tasks before the 13th.
- Continue making self-care a priority.
- Finish friends’ Christmas gifts before the 13th. LOL
- Enjoy the time away from “real life” at the end of the month, so I can come home refreshed and ready to jump back into it.
I’ll be heading to Michigan on the 13th to invade Bronwyn’s house for two whole weeks, so I want all the non-writing word done and off my plate, because I’m not bringing it with me! Those two weeks are for time with friends and writing, and I canNOT wait!
And that’s it for me. Be sure to check out how January came together for Bron.
