I did it ... almost!

And so begins another week! How we are halfway through January already, I have no idea!

Thanks to all of you for your input about editing Game On and re-writing If I Let You Go. I had a look back over Game On and it isn't half as bad as I thought it was. In my head, it's a big mess of horrendous word use and bad grammar. The reality is - it's actually pretty good. Well, I think so, anyway lol! So, I might just leave it be. But there will be more IILYG from the male POV soon-ish.

Last week I set my first ever list of goals. Well, the first list I've ever made public, anyway. Here's what I achieved:

Schedule all blog posts I have for other bloggers to promote/reveal covers so I don't have to do it at the last minute - DONE!

Post prizes from Blindsided Blog Tour (Some have already gone out, but I still have more to do) All but one have been posted now. I should get to the last one this week.

Write up guest post for Cassie Mae's blog and email it Done and emailed.

Read a couple more chapters of The Fire In Fiction - Fail. But in my defense, I got Save The Cat this week, and read that instead!

Finish Rouge by Leigh Talbert Moore - I'm nearly done, but I keep getting distracted by all the other things I need to do Done, and then I also read Ocean Kills by Jade Hart, which might I say, is a work of genius!

Quit daydreaming, I don't have time (LOL!)- I failed here, but most of you said it's okay to daydream so I don't feel too guilty. :p

Oh ... and write! Hmm. I did some writing, so I guess that counts. For the most part, though, my WIP stressed me out and I didn't know what to do with it. Hopefully this week it will be easier.

I'm not setting any goals for this week, mainly because I'm not sure what I'll have time for just yet. I have a bunch of stuff happening at home so I will just do what I can and get back to my goals next week. :D Happy Monday, everyone!

  2. Well done on achieving so many goals, Kyra, that's impressive! I tried goal-setting over the weekend with the novel, but completely underestimated the work needing done! Hope you have a good week ahead :) x
