2020 Second 1/4 Goals
Wow. What a quarter. Am I right? I hope you are all surviving this pandemic and staying safe and sane. I have been doing okay, trying to find the good in the bad. Spring is coming, I've had lots of life opportunities. The world doesn't stop for tragedy. It may slow, but we will go on. And I believe there is a rainbow waiting for us at the end of this storm.
I accomplished 10.5/13 writing goals in the first quarter of 2020, which is pretty awesome. I read 7 books, wrote all my blog posts out ahead of time, started and finished draft 3 of Silent Night 2, chose a title for Silent Night 2(to be revealed in June), started the Beta Reading process for Silent Night 2, marketed for Silent Night, prepared monthly website membership freebies ahead of time, researched editors, researched poetry books, and started a new first draft.
I also completed 4/8 personal goals.
My goals for the 2nd quarter of 2020 (April, May, and June) are as follows:
Read 5 books
Write all my blog post ideas ahead of time
Finish Beta Reading process for Silent Night 2
Draft 5 of Silent Night 2
Draft 6 of Silent Night 2
Send Silent Night 2 to my editor
Look into Betas for Project Summer
Announce street team
Research ebook ARCs
Market for Silent Night
Reach 20 reviews of Silent Night
Hold a sale on Silent Night
Prepare monthly freebies for website members ahead of time
Continue draft 1 of Project Petra
Fast read through of Silent Night 3
Aside from the above writing related goals, I also have 8 personal goals:
Be kind to myself
Cook at least 3 new dishes
Drink more water
Follow a new gym schedule
Stay calm during first 2 months of school
Attend church more often
This gives me a total of 23 goals. I'm starting a new full time job this month and starting an online college course in May, so I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but we'll see.
I’ll update my progress in July, when publication will be right around the corner once again. Hard to believe. 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 second quarter and as always, keep writing.
