2016 Goal Check In: How Did I Do in October

October was pretty much a wash due to personal circumstances and struggling to get through the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with (and am still struggling to deal with).  As such, no real progress on anything and only changes are cancelling stuff that isn’t happening and changing the target dates on one  🙁 


  1. Girl in the Forest
    1. Alpha/Beta feedback back August 15th, process and finish revision by September 30th December 31st – failed, not happening by this deadline at all; now just aiming for end of year
    2. Get to editor by October 1stcancelled as won’t happen now due to delay in processing feedback
    3. Back from editor, process, and to proofreading (if needed) by November 15thditto
    4. Set launch plan, date, and preorder up by November 30stditto
    5. BHAG: have beta read, final revision, and editing done in time for release by December 31stditto
  2. Maid Maleen retelling (final title note decided yet)
    1. Finish first draft period – will be cancelled unless it becomes my NaNo 2016 project
    2. Read through and come up with revision plan by September 30th cancelled as well past date now and isn’t even written
    3. Determine title and series name – maybe on book, done on series
  3. New Novels – write at least one
    1. Write new novel for NaNo 2016 – just might be a 100% pantsing year….

Site and Show and Everything Else

  1. Read at least 200 books – Current Count: 104 – no change
    1. Read at least 5 books from my current digital TBR shelf – 4 read!
    2. Read at least 5 non-fiction books – 1 read, 1 DNF
  2. Create personal logo/imagecancelled, no ideas and just not finding time to do it
