Goals – Recap for March and New Ones for April 2017

Happy Monday, y’all! For the last week I’ve been intending to post a recap about my March goals, and tell what my April goals are, but I was kinda hoping to vlog about them. And, as it turns out I haven’t been able to vlog because of being sick. (For some reason it’s easier to write out my thoughts when I’m all sneezing and sniffling and nasally than it is to tell them to a camera.)

Finally I decided that since April is a third of the way through, I’d just give up on the vlogging dream for the moment. Thankfully I did write my goals for April at the beginning of the month this time. So, even though I didn’t post about them, I have been working on them.

But first! The recap for my March goals…

  1. Blog 20 times – YES, 22 times altogether
  2. Vlog 2 times – YES, 3 altogether (although I didn’t post all the vlogs yet)
  3. Read and review 4 books – YES, 15 altogether
  4. Send out 15 query letters – NO, I only sent out 9 or 10. #oops
  5. Plot the 1st draft of a book – YES
  6. Catch up on emails – YES
  7. Go to bed by 10:30 10 times – YES
  8. Go on 10 walks – YES

I’m quite thankful to have done this well on my goals for March – thank you everyone for helping keep me accountable!


And now! For April…

If the Lord wills and I live, in April of 2017 I will:

  1. Get to bed by 10:30 twelve times
  2. Eat Paleo for 24 days
  3. Go on 12 walks
  4. Do the A to Z Challenge (and post by 9:30 at least 20 times)
  5. Leave 200 comments on A to Z blog posts
  6. Vlog 4 times
  7. Read and review 4 books
  8. Finish the 19th draft of WLHYL by April 20th
  9. Begin the 2nd draft of Echoes 
  10. Get ready and leave for Mexico

Do you have goals you’re working on for April? I’d be delighted to hear about them.

    Great job on your March goals, it’s super cool that you plotted the first draft of a new book! I’m doing the A to Z Challenge too in April, inspired by your blog, so I’ll be working on that this month. 🙂 I was wondering how you find other A to Z Challenge bloggers to leave comments? 200 is a lot! 😀

    Great goals! (Especially the WLHYL one… That’s probably my favorite. 😀 ) This month I have a lot of beta-reading and books to read and review plus Camp NaNoWriMo. Some friends and I are running a booth at our local homeschool convention, so I’m aiming to publish again in time for that. 😉

      Aww, thanks, Kate! =) And YAY! I’m glad you like them. I like them too, but after being sick for the last half a week, I’m kinda behind on them….
      And yay for those goals! That sounds like a lot of busyness. A homeschool convention? I WANNA COME! I’ve always wanted to have my books at a booth and man it. It sounds delightful. 🙂
      I hope you are able to publish in time. =)
