October Goals

It’s October! While I usually love this month, well, it is 2020. Although I suppose I am living each day in growing terror as the election nears. That’s not really a fun terror, though.
Ugh, let’s focus on something less awful.
September Goals
1. Work on word usage. I overuse an embarrassing amount of words and phrases.
There are still a bunch left, but at least I did something.
2. Get WIP beta reader ready.
It’s pretty there. Probably as close as it’s going to get, anyway.
3. Look back on the last ten years because holy crap, that’s how long I’ve been blogging.
If it was any year but 2020, this probably would have been a lot more interesting to do.
And that’s that. I did a lot of what I set out to do, but could have done better. It was kind of a tiring month to exist in. So what should I do this month…
October Goals
1. Find some beta readers for my latest WIP. I hope some of my friends are still available.
2. Update my blog’s etymology page. I really should have done this last month!
3. Work on something. Anything.
Here’s hoping October is successful and not a nightmare reaching its pinnacle. What do you want to do this month?


  1. Then all things considered, you did great for October. Hope you can track down some beta readers.

  2. I think you did well in September. And you know I'll read for you.

  3. Let's hope it's darkest before the dawn. You know I'll read for you.

  4. Every writer has a list of overused words and phrases. It's just what we do.

    I wouldn't have availability until December, but if you can wait until then, I'd be happy to read for you.

    Best of luck with your October goals!
