October Goals

You might be noticing that this is going up a week late. That’s because in my excitement over it being Halloween month, I completely forgot to do my goals post. No exaggeration. I didn’t realize until last Tuesday, well after my scheduled post went up.

Oh well! I guess the scary thing for today will be that I’m getting old and forgetful.

September Goals
1. Get back into the grind. Ugh.

2. Look through some of my old stories and see if they need any work done.
Hey, I did this. And found out that one of my stories that I really liked was gone. So that kind of sucked.

3. Try to come up with a brand new idea for a story. It’s been a while…
This one I completely failed. I just didn’t have any inspiration! I’ve had a couple ideas for old works, though, so that’s a minor victory.

Kind of a meh month. I’m still really disappointed about that story missing!

October Goals
1. Update my etymology list so I don’t ignore it for a year and then have a huge amount to put in.

2. Find some time to write! It’s going to be a busy month…


So that’s the plan. It’s going to be a fairly busy month, so hopefully I’ll be able to find time to write. And what are you up to this month? Anything fun or interesting?


  1. I can relate with the lack of inspiration.

  2. I took from this post that you're really excited about Halloween. It'll be a fun reward after a month of hard work! I find that prompts sometimes help to spark off some inspiration.

  3. I have the opposite problem - too many ideas for stories. I just don't have the time to write them all.

  4. I need to get back into making goals. I took September off from blogging in order to relax (which didn't happen due to the day job) and now I'm struggling to get back into blogging.

  5. Well, that's an idea for a "new" story. Rewrite the old one. Ugh.

    You didn't forget this post. You just remembered it later than you would have liked...

  6. We have always been a Halloween-loving family. But as the girls have grown older, our enthusiasm has waned. IF the girls dressed up, they went elsewhere to have their fun -- hanging out with friends in bigger neighborhoods where they could get more candy. For the past 3 years, my husband and I didn't bother to decorate. We turned out the lights and didn't even bother to distribute candy.

    This year, however, we have our German girl with us. And she is SOOOO excited for Halloween. Not only have we decorated the house, we're hosting a Halloween party AND taking the girls on an excursion to Pennhurst Asylum for their haunted tour. :)
