Monthly update: February 2019

And it’s… mid-February. How did that happen?

It’s probably needless to say, but January was a busy month. Much busier than I’d anticipated, and (though it’s inconsequential to this post) much colder.

It all left me a bit exhausted, if I’m being honest.

That said, I did manage to get a decent amount of work done. Let’s focus on that for a bit, shall we?

January’s goals

  1. Take a class on MasterClass
  2. Read through CD and look for potential edits
  3. Send one short story out on submission
  4. Edit one short story
  5. Find spring craft/trade shows

Like I said above, I did finish some of these goals, just not all of them. It’s probably best if we take a look at them in order this time around.

I wasn’t able to take that class on MasterClass, and, unfortunately, my subscription on the platform ran out. Though I am hoping I can sign up again in the future. I found it really useful while I had access to it.

In terms of CD, though I didn’t finish reading through the manuscript, I did make some really good progress on it. It’s on some good footing moving into February.

It’s the same with my short story goals. I didn’t edit one, but I did send one off to be considered for publication.

And, finally… I made no progress with my spring craft/trade shows. Definitely dropped the ball on that one, and I have no excuse.

So, there are some successes in there, and some… not-so-successes. Which means it’s time to focus on next steps.

February’s goals

  1. Finish reading CD
  2. Find 1 free learning opportunity
  3. Edit 1 short story
  4. Find spring craft/trade shows

It’s a fairly similar list to last month, just slightly shorter. And hopefully more attainable.

I guess we’ll see how it goes.

In the meantime, what do you have planned for February?
