June Goals

Summer time! Summer time! I have my swimming pass, the little boy I nanny is out of school, and tomorrow we are headed to the pool with his eight month old sister to have some swimming time! I hate swimsuits, but I do love spending time in the water. We tested the little boy's new sprinkler last week and the baby hated it, but she liked having her bathtub in the sunshine.

She's pretty cute. I spend my Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays with her and now her brother since he's done with school. I love playing with both of them!

But it's time for an update in goals!

Here are my goals from May:
* Complete first round of revisions for Camp NaNo novel, Silent Beauty

* Read "Sidelined" by Kyra Lennon

* Take a vacation

I completed all of my goals and I had a wonderful vacation! My best friend and I drove to Wisconsin to visit our other best friend who moved there. Iowa to Wisconsin is the furthest I have ever driven by myself! The trip was only 3 days, but we went to Brat Fest, which was all about brats, beer, and music. Very Midwest United States. I loved the Ferris Wheel best! Overall, it was a great time!

Goals for June:

* Work on a plan of revisions for "The Freaks"
This is the first book in a trilogy I wrote over two years ago. I submitted it and received two full requests but both turned it down, saying they liked it but didn't love it. I'd really like to try revising it again. The second book in the trilogy is finished and I am completely in love with it, but I've fall out of love with the first book and need to fix it.

* Read "City of Lost Souls" and "City of Heavenly Fire" by Cassandra Clare

* Work on query for Silent Beauty

How did you goals from May go? What are your goals for June? :) I'm off to my little sister's dance recital today, have a great Sunday!


  1. I need to read City of Heavenly Fire, but I ended up buying four books for my kindle for the same price as the paperback - so I might wait a while! Four books are better than one, after all :)
    Good luck with your goals!

  2. Sounds like you had a great time with your friends! Good luck with this month's goals!
