Monthly update: September 2018

It’s September! I’m actually pretty excited about that, too. September means a new month and a new season. It means autumn, and sweaters, and cozy evenings in, and my birthday.

Though, admittedly, this year it’s a birthday I have mixed feelings about. But that’s irrelevant right now.

What is relevant is what I did or didn’t accomplish in August, and what I’m hoping to accomplish in September. Are you ready to hear about it?

August’s goals

  1. Fix antagonist’s arc in CD
  2. Brainstorm edits for BC
  3. Make a list of possible craft sale opportunities
  4. Start Judy Blume’s writing class on MasterClass

I’m happy to say that I accomplished about 2.5 out of 4 of those goals. Which may not seem like a lot, but is better than I’ve done the last few months. Progress!

So, which goals did I accomplish? Well, I’ve started my list of craft sale opportunities, and I’ll continue to update that as I find new ones or as they become available. I also started Judy Blume’s writing class, though I only got about a quarter of the way through it. And, that “.5” accomplishment? I started brainstorming edits for BC. I just didn’t get very far with them. Still, it’s better than not starting them at all, right?

Writing update

As for my writing, I did get quite a bit done this month, though not quite as much as I was hoping to. I’m still on the right track with it, though, so I do have some decently high hopes for September. And some big plans. But more on those in a moment.

Print Shop update

I added a couple of more items to my Print Shop this month: my recent Rose photo and Pink Carnation photo. Other than that, I’ve just put in a bit more effort to promote the shop. Hopefully both will lead to some positive outcomes.

Speaking of which, let’s take a look forward now.

September’s goals

  1. Fix antagonist’s arc in CD
  2. Finish brainstorming edits for BC
  3. Finish Judy Blume’s writing class on MasterClass
  4. Edit 1 short story

I have four goals again, and, yes, they’re fairly similar to August’s goals. Mostly they’re a matter of finishing things off, with one key difference: there’s a short story contest I want to enter, which means I need a short story to enter it with. I have one I’ve started, so I should be able to get it ready to go before the contest’s deadline.

So, there you have it: my big accomplishments from August, and the things I’m hoping to finish in September. Have you set out your goals for the month yet?
