Goal Updates, New Goals, and News

In July I posted a list of goals I wanted to accomplish before the end of August, and with yesterday being the last day of August, I thought I'd share my update with you.

1) Finish current WIP by the end of August.  I did finish my round of revisions on my WIP, and am now incorporating feedback from my CP's. I have the first 2 chapters of another WIP (another revision which is most likely going to be an almost complete rewrite) set, and will be working on this while waiting for feedback.

2) Reach 50 followers on my blog and on Twitter. Thanks to all my followers (old and new) I have over 50 followers here, but did not meet my Twitter goal.

My goals for September are:

1) Finish incorporating feedback from my CP's.  This may take longer than the month as we only exchange 3 chapters a week, but I am hopeful to get through it all.

2) Get a good start on my next WIP.  I have a basic outline (and now my characters very well as this is probably the 10th (or more) version of this story.  Just couldn't get it quite right before) and a better idea of how to fix what was wrong.


One of my CP's has a new blog.  You can check it out here.  Isn't the tree just gorgeous?  Don't you want to open the door and go inside? 

For those of you who are fans of Rob Thurman, and haven't heard.  She is recovering from a serious car accident.  Updates can be found on her blog here.

 Next week I hope to post a fun game for all of you to play along with, so stay tuned.  Have a great weekend!!!


  1. Congrats on achieving your goals and good luck on the new ones!

  2. I'm thinking about goals right now too, it's that 'back to school' feeling :-)

  3. Goals are good. Best wishes for the new month!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog, Mary. I'm following yours now.

    Nice to meet you!

  5. Good luck with your goals! September seems to be a great month to write. I love seasonal changes and for some crazy reason it inspires me to do some of my best writing.

  6. LOL. I found this after I posted about goals, although, mine is way different. Yay for the new followers. Hopefully your CP's will be able to help you reach your goals. Mine are just awesome;)

  7. Great idea to post your goals and progress online. That way you are accountable for them.


Thanks for dropping by. I love reading comments and will respond by e-mail as soon as possible.
