August Goals

Oh man. It’s August already? On one hand, it IS my birthday month, so cake and presents. On the other hand, August already???
July Goals
1. Continue working on notes from beta reading (still could use more!). Not sure about some parts of it, but I do want to work on it.
I did do a great deal with this, but of course I’m too distracted by my shiny new project to finish. Insert eyeroll emoji here.
2. Get my latest project underway. If it actually goes well, I’ll have to tell you about it.
I’ve been working on it! Is it going well? Too soon to say. Do I want to talk about it? I vastly underestimated how self-conscious I would be.
3. [Heavy sigh] Update my etymology page. I hate what a chore this has become thanks to New Blogger.
Ugh, yes. I hate the New Blogger interface. Hate-it-hate-it-hate-it. I just want to be able to properly space my word lists again!
July was mostly successful, I guess. Also really frigging hot and humid. Though that doesn’t really have any bearing on my goals. Now for this month…
August Goals
1. Continue work on the new project, which is serial fiction rather than a full MS, so that’s a whole new thing to learn about.
2. Actually finish the beta notes (and please don’t be too distracted by the above to do it!).
3. BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY BIRTHDAY!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August is so far a humid mess of wildfires. What do you want to do this month?


  1. I'm about to go off and do the second day of an advanced first aid course. More or less to have it in my CV. And just in case.

  2. That's why I html format everything in Word before taking it into Blogger. It is screwy.
    You had a good month and about to get better with a birthday.

  3. Sounds like you had a productive July. Here's to August being just as productive, And happy birthday month!

  4. Happy birthday month. August is back to school time here now. We start back up next week. Eeek.

  5. Shiny new projects are always good for distraction. That's part of the fun, right?

    Glad July went so well, and hope you can continue that trend in August.

    Happy Birthday Month!!

  6. Happy birthday month. May all your wishes come true though I doubt anything you wish about New Blogger will come true.
