Anyway, it's time for an update in goals!
Here are my goals from July:
* Work on query for "Silent Beauty" and a few nit-picky revisions
Ta-da! Sorry, that felt like a dancing moment. I didn't accomplish any of my goals from June, but I did manage to complete all of my goals for July. So, I definitely call that a win. :) While I still didn't quite feel very productive, I did manage to get some hard revisions done on Silent Beauty and strengthen the novel. As to the reading aspect of writing, I read six books during the month of July.
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Courage (Mark of Nexus #2) by Carrie Butler
Four by Veronica Roth
True Love and Magic Tricks (Beds, #0.5) by Cassie Mae and Theresa Paolo
Honesty (Mark of Nexus #2.5) by Carrie Butler
I'm ONE book away from my overall yearly goal of 40 books. I will definitely be reading more than 40 books this year and that makes me very happy. :)
Goals for August:
* Write to 20,000 words on "Cold to the Touch"
* Work on more "Silent Beauty" revisions
* Reread "The Freaks" - look for weaknesses and plot issues
I'm looking forward to these goals and hopefully everything gets sorted out with my apartment soon so I'll have a place to live! I love my family, but I miss my bed and books, which are packed in a trailer. Also, I miss have some personal space! But August should bring some good changes. :) What are your goals for August and how did your goals for July go?
