2019 3rd Quarter Results, 4th Quarter Goals


Overall I did decently on my goals this quarter.  I read 61 books in total for the quarter and have already blown past my 200 books goal for the year!  This quarter I only read 2 non-fiction books (one pretty big one at 400 pages or so), but I also read six non-manga titles, so that’s an acceptable balance for me.   

I’m calling my goal of deciding my next project a mixed bag – I did start and finish two short stories, but the goal was aimed more at starting my next project towards publication.  That said, I also gave myself permission to just write whatever and ease off on pressuring myself so much, so I’m happy I got those two done.  I did write more on the sci-fi short story as well, but it hasn’t decided it wants to end yet hence it not being finished LOL
