November Goals

Frigging hell. What can I even say about this month? It was such a nightmare and I’m betting this month is going to be even worse, for obvious reasons.
I don’t even remember what I was supposed to be working on last month.
October Goals
1. Find some beta readers for my latest WIP. I hope some of my friends are still available.
Yeah, I did this. It’s already been really helpful. Thanks!
2. Update my blog’s etymology page. I really should have done this last month!
I did this, although the new posting format made it really difficult. I used to be able to paste it in from Excel and it had nice, even spacing between the words. Now that no longer works, and I can’t get rid of the double spacing in the word list. So yeah. That’s a thing.
3. Work on something. Anything.
This grew increasingly difficult as the month went on. Shocking.
I don’t know if I’d call this a success, if only because nothing about October seems successful.
November Goals
1. Keep working on notes from my beta readers.
2. Thanksgiving. Though with the pandemic, this should be nice and subdued.
3. Just get through the month.
What are you up to this month?


  1. You don't like the family crowd at Thanksgiving anyway, right?

  2. Fingers crossed things get better. And look on the bright side. You never liked the big family holidays anyway!

  3. Well, one can be thankful to the pandemic for at least one reason.

  4. I'll get my notes back to you, hopefully before the end of the month.

  5. Yep. Just get through the month. I am right there with you.

  6. Sometimes, getting through is enough.
    Rest is good, too.

  7. I hate the double spacing thing. I hate so much about the changes blogger made.
    However, if you hold the space key when you hit return, it won't double space.
    No, I don't even know how I know that. Probably a typing accident.
