Of course it would in the shortest month of the year that I manage to complete 80% of my to do lists. Especially since most of the time I manage to only check off maybe one or two items and everything else tends to gets pushed forward to the next month.
There in lies my problem. I keep hoping to do stuff and maybe I’ll get to it later.
Here’s a goal for next month, so going to push to try harder and actually get this stuff done. Not let motivations, or lack there-of, get in mine way. Lol
But anyways, I’m here to let you know how exactly did February go for me?
Let’s get started.
February Goals –
Edit & Post short story – complete. It can be found under the shorts tab on my blog/webpage.
Lose 5lbs- Complete!
Start editing sci-fi novel – nope, but I’m starting on this this month. Promise.
2 youtube videos – Yes!
Blog bi-weekly – No, unless you want to count the youtube videos. When I can posts my youtube videos on my page then it’ll start counting, right?
Read 1 book – Yes. I completed Bethany Atazadeh’s Evalene’s Number. Excellent read if you’re looking for something to pick up in the dystopian future type novels.
Clean Closet – Yes! Semi-funny story here. My husband lost a couple of videos games and proceeded to clear and reorganize our closet in his attempt to find his games. Didn’t find them, but the closet got cleaned out so there’s that check mark.
Like I said, I did manage to get a good portion of my goals completed and I’m super proud of everything that I did so I’m looking at March and thinking I can so complete this lists items that are getting added on.
So, March is a bit longer but it’s also my anniversary with my husband and a handful of birthdays, so here we go and I know that by the time that this is posted I’ll be a week in March and should be fully on the way to completing some of these goals but look at who’s blog you’re reading here. Lol
So list of things I’m looking to achieve this month.
Write and Edit another short. – At typically 5,000 words I think this achievable.
Start Edits to Sci-Fi Novel – Again achievable if I start today.
2 youtube videos – not an insane amount and completely doable going by past months.
Read 1 book – I need to either decide on a book I already own or buy a new one first but still.
Lose another 5lbs – Going to achieve this one!
Start streaming on twitch – I know it seems like I’m giving myself another way to procrastinate on writing, but it’s something I wanna try and see I’ll enjoy it.
Blog 2 times this month – Hey, I’ve already got one blog down.
Query more Agents – Since January I’ve been querying 2 or 3 agents a month and tapping my finger for the rest of the month (hence why the streaming is coming in to keep me busier)
How I plan to achieve these goals?
1. Write a thousand words a week. Yep, we’ll get through this somehow.
2. Edit for 2hrs a day (probably at night when kids go to bed)
3. Film 2 videos at beginning of month (With computer currently down editing anything is going to be rough, but filming is still a possibility.)
4. Read 20pgs a day
5. Stream in the mornings Monday through Thursday!
