2019 Final Quarter Goals



My favourite time of the year is finally year. I love the cozy sweaters, cool breezes, colourful leaves, and hot drinks. It truly is an inspirational time of the year when my creativity really shines. Hope the atmosphere will help me accomplish my goals and relax as the year comes to a close.

I accomplished 14/17 writing goals in the last quarter, which is awesome! I read 3.5 books, sent out Newsletters with Silent Night goodies, finished Draft 7 of Silent Night, followed my Instagram posting schedule, marketed for Silent Night, created my KDP account, won Camp Nanowrimo with 32,396 words added to Project Madness, did a cover and release date reveal for Silent Night(October 23rd), opened pre-orders, formatted Silent Night, ordered proofs and proofread, watched Youtube videos about writing, created Twitter and Goodreads accounts, and I didn’t lose my mind throughout all of that. I also completed 5/6 personal goals.


My goals for this quarter(October, November, and December) are as follows:

  • Read

  • Send out Newsletters

  • Maybe write some blog posts

  • Finish Draft 8 of Silent Night. The final draft!!!

  • Publish Silent Night!

  • Host a livestream release party on Instagram

  • Mail giveaway prizes

  • Do my #onewordquotechallenge

  • Follow my Instagram posting schedule

  • Marketing for Silent Night

  • Stay active on Twitter

  • Update Goodreads and website

  • Continue draft 2 of Silent Night 2

  • Draft at least 30,000 words during Nanowrimo for Project Bone Fairy

  • Organize a book signing at my local library

  • Watch YouTube videos about writing

Aside from the above writing related goals, I also have 5 personal goals:

  • Be kind to myself

  • Make healthier food choices

  • Stay hydrated

  • Find a new job

  • Research educational options

This gives me a total of 21 goals. Can I do it? I think so. Most of these goals are for October, so the other two months might be a bit more laid back, though is Nanowrimo ever laid back? I’ll be creating a more concrete plan for the rest of the year after my book is published, so maybe I’ll share that later.


I’ll update my progress in the new year. In the meantime, you can check out my monthly goal posts on Instagram at emmathewriter, if you’re interested. Or, you can subscribe to my newsletter and get info first hand from yours truly, along with access to my members page : )

Let me know what your guys’ goals are in the comments! Keep in touch and drop me a line if you need advice/encouragement. Have a great rest of the year and as always, keep writing.
