February Goals

Well, I think we can all agree January was somehow worse than any of us anticipated. This does not bode well for 2021. What was I even supposed to do last month? Because I guarantee you, I didn’t do it.
January Goals
1. Finish the book I started writing (or at least get close, depending on how long it ends up).
Hey, I finished it. Yay… I’m trying to be enthusiastic but my stress won’t let me.
2. Finish work on more beta notes.
Did not do this. I was way too emotionally exhausted. Kind of disappointed in myself for this one.
3. Get my query ready (gulp).
Eh, it’s still a work in progress, but at least I worked on it.
Please don’t let January come back.
February Goals
1. Do my first pass of notes on the new WIP, and start working on them.
2. Do all the adult stuff I need to that’s giving me a constant panic attack.
3. Actually get to work on my old WIP notes.
Or maybe I’ll just sleep for the entire month. What are you planning to do this February?


  1. Glad you finished the story!
    It's a short month. It will go by quick.

  2. You finished your WIP! That's something to celebrate! And February's short. You can get through it. Then it'll be spring.

  3. Sleeping for a month doesn't sound half bad.

  4. Well, in January I actually got back to writing. It had been a while since I had written anything besides a blog post. For February, I'd like to finish up the outline of the story so I can get into the actual drafting. At the rate I'm going, that should be easily accomplishes.

  5. Emotional exhaustion is contagious right now.

  6. I was going to say that I was going to write this month, but I really like the idea of just sleeping until March. If not longer...

    Congrats on finishing your book. That's an amazing achievement, even if your stress is reluctant to acknowledge it.


Please validate me.
