Or at least I have to assume it is. I mean I hope it is....its been raining here all week..
Its the first day of the new month which means a quick check in on my goals from the previous month and officially deciding my goals for the next month! Lets look at how April went:
Goals for April
- Made this one just at the very last second! Yesterday I read all of Lauren Oliver's new novel Panic and I cannot recommend it enough! Review coming soon.
- Okay so if we're being super technical I did not actually make this goal I fell about 100 words short. However I have a good reason: I finished the draft!! This is super exciting for me, as I have never in my life actually finished a draft of a story. It is 125 messy, ugly, terrible pages that I will never let anyone else even think about looking at until it has undergone extensive revisions, but it is a draft with a beginning and an end. There is still an awful lot missing in the middle to be sure, but this is still much farther than I have ever made it before so I'm gonna celebrate this little bit of progress!
Complete the April A-to-Z Blogging Challenge!
- You probably all noticed this fell through in the last weekish. Finals got the best of me, unfortunately. But it was still fun as far as I managed to go and I met some awesome new bloggers, so really it was a success even if I did not manage to complete the challenge.
All in all I'm calling April a success. Now we start moving forward to make May even better! Here are my goals for May:
Write 10,000 words of my NEW work in progress: The Homecoming Court. I've had this idea building in the back of my mind for about a month so I'm excited to finally get to dive in! This is going to be a bit of a challenge I think since I am experimenting with writing by hand instead of typing.
Read the first 2 books of A Song of Ice and Fire
Post to the Diaries at least twice a week
How did your goals for April go? And do you have anything exciting planned for the next month?
