July Goals

It's time for an update with my goals? Already?

Yeah, umm... let's do an update on my goals. Oh, this can't be good.

Here are my goals from June:
* Work on a plan of revisions for "The Freaks"

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

* Work on query for "Silent Beauty"

Yeah, this is the part where you say "Krista, you didn't cross out any of those goals." And this is the part where I stare blankly at you. I didn't finish any of my goals from June. I started reading "City of Lost Souls" and I'm half-way done, but that's it. 

But I did other things! I promise I didn't sit around and do nothing all month, though it honestly felt like I wasn't productive sometimes. I finished reading five books!

In non-writing news, I finally found an apartment for August 1st. I've been looking for a place for three months, with no luck. Everything was either too expensive or... well, too expensive. It's not exactly my first, second, or even tenth choice, but I can afford it and it's a small efficiency. I won't be homeless, so I call that a success. I hate moving though, so this month won't be my best.

Goals for July:
* Read "City of Lost Souls" and "City of Heavenly Fire" by Cassandra Clare

* Work on query for "Silent Beauty" and a few nit-picky revisions

I'm only giving myself two goals due to my crazy busy month with moving out of my current place and into my parents garage for a few days until I can move into my new place, and packing. I hate packing. I'm working a little bit on a new novel, but I only have two pages, so nothing much yet.

How did you goals for June go? What are your goals for July? Be sure to come back tomorrow, since I will be helping co-host the "Insecure Writer's Support Group" for the first time! I'd love some encouragement and you should go find others to encourage! Also, I'll be doing a giveaway on July 7th to celebrate 4 years of blogging! See, it's a busy month ahead!


  1. Heh, it's funny when you set goals, but end up achieving totally different ones! Great that you have found a new apartment - good luck with the packing up!

    1. It is funny that I achieved other goals! And I'm glad to have found a place, but packing... *shivers* Not fun.

  2. Good luck with your goals, and with the move!
