November Wrap Up

In the beginning of the month I set myself some goals to reach in place of taking part in any of the NaMo events during November.

My goals were:

  1. Post at least three times (hopefully four) a week on this blog.

  2. Work on my novel, Devil May Care, to start a second draft.

  3. Write in general!

  4. Read at least six books this month (hopefully I’ll push past that to a nice round number of ten).

  5. Lastly, I’d like to actually start taking It Matter to Us, the political blog I share with my twin, seriously. (five posts/month)

So…how did I do?

  1. Totally rocked this! I had 16 posts in total this month, with at least three ever week. I’m really proud of myself, because this month was crazy busy and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up.
  2. I did work on my novel. Not a lot of actual writing (though that did happen briefly) but I got a TON of plotting done for a second draft. Most of all, I’m excited about writing again. I like the direction my plot is going and I can’t wait to get into the nitty gritty part of actually writing draft #2.
  3. I did write this month, though it was mostly poetry. I will post some of it here (and already have posted a few), and keep some of it for myself. I never used to write poetry, and though it is growing on me, I’m ready to get back to prose.
    • It should be noted that I did not work on Hell and Styx’s stories, which I really meant to. So mission not entirely accomplished.
  4. I read seven books this month. Again, this month was crazy, so I impressed myself. All of them earned at least 4/5 stars, which is also good because it means I enjoyed myself. πŸ˜‰
  5. I completely failed at this one. I wasn’t in the mood, never found the time, etc. It didn’t happen. Whoops.

Overall, I accomplished 4/5 of the goals I set for myself, so I’m happy. πŸ™‚
