August Goals

Ugh, I really didn’t get enough done in July, and I don’t even have to look at my list to know that.

July Goals

1. Do something about that query and then send out another set. Not that I’m expecting much…
Did not do this. Honestly, I was feeling too disheartened. After getting so many rejections, I needed a self-esteem break.

2. Finally get to the read aloud of REMEMBER that I meant to do months ago and never did. If I’m not too distracted by something shiny.
Ha-ha! Take that, shiny distractions! I got this done!

3. Work on recreating some of the projects I lost when my computer crapped out on me. Most of them I could care less about, but there are a couple of things I really liked, even if they’re just for me.
This too. Kind of. It’s not like it was a well-defined goal. I guess it’s a win since I can’t technically lose.

All right, let’s see what I’m up to this month…

August Goals

1. Work on REMEMBER notes. I’m only putting “work on” because it is vacation month after all. Plus…well, you’ll see in my next goal.

2. Add 20K to my new WIP. Yes, you read that right. I started another one. The idea was nagging at me and I couldn’t ignore it!


Well, I know I’ll be able to do number three. What about you? What are you guys up to this month?


  1. Best of luck with your August goals :) especially #3!!!

  2. Good luck with the new idea and have a great vacation.

  3. Yay for vacation! I didn't get one this summer. And I think I needed one. I've been feeling burned out on writing, but with nothing to do but hang out at home, I keep trying to write anyway.

    July was a tough month.

  4. I could have used a vacation, but it doesn't look like that's in the cards.

  5. I think you should focus on number 3. That's the important one.

  6. Moving. My only goal for August is to get packed, get moved, and try not to freak out about it. I guess that means I have three goals.

  7. I'm taking a break from querying myself. Rejections are exhausting, I swear. It's such a lovely relief to NOT be checking my inbox like a crazy person - and not be seeing those rejections! So I support you taking a break, too :) LOL

  8. My goals for July went well, but June completely tanked. We all have good months and bad months. Hopefully you have a better month! Enjoy your vacation!

  9. I'm trying to get through the last few weeks of summer.

    Enjoy your vacay. :)

    IWSG #184 until Alex culls the list again.

  10. Number 3 is the most important in August - Number 1 and 2 (childish giggle at toilet humour!) can always be carried forward to September - have a lovely vacation :) x
