I did manage to get a lot done this month! Too bad that next month I'm going to be far too busy. That's why my biggest goal for July was to write as much as possible. Here's how I did:
July is a month of ups and downs for me. I enjoy summer and July is when the last vestiges of spring finally fade away. My birthday is also this month and I love presents just as much as anyone. There is a big downside though: my job from hell starts on the 24th. It's six days a week, full time, for six straight weeks. It's tiring and it's infuriating, but they pay me, which is why I go back every year. What the start of the job from hell means is as of the 24th my writing time utterly vanishes. I'll be able to squeak in a few minutes here or there, but any progress won't be significant. I need to get as much as possible done this month before the job starts and my goals list reflects that. Here's what I'm planning:
May ended up being a pretty interesting month. I got a lot written, but not for the stories actually in my goals list. I also got to go shopping for a new car. The former was excellent, but the latter really wasn't. I know I'm going to like my new car a whole heck of a lot more than my old one, but the hassle of one car dying and having to scramble for a new one wasn't fun. Anyway, here's how I managed with my goals for May:
April showers bring May flowers, which also brings along allergies. I am allergic to being outside in the Spring, so I'll be sneezing and sniffling all month long. It's awful, but at the same time I love being outside and playing in the dirt. My strawberries are coming up and pretty soon the vegetable garden will be going in. There's lots to look forward to and hopefully I'll be able to get a lot of writing done too.
Passover did take up a very large chunk of my writing time for the first week of April, but after that it was smooth sailing. I got a good bit written and have also planned out a lot of future writing. Then the edits for The Oracle's Sprite arrived and getting those done trumped writing. I still managed to get a lot completed. Here's how I did in April:
