December Goals

It's almost Christmas time! I put up my tree last night, along with wrapping a few gifts while watching "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Holiday in Handcuffs", two of my favorite Christmas movies! :) There's only 24 days left until Christmas. I only have to finish making one gift and then find the perfect gift for my older sister. The rest of my gifts are purchased and wrapped under the tree. :)

Yes, I do have two Star Trek ornaments.
It's time for an update in my monthly writing goals!

Here are my goals from November:
* Write to 50,000 words on my NaNo Novel
My NaNo novel is tentatively called "Sweet Little Lies" and it's a YA contemporary romance between a cheerleader and a male dancer.


 
Completed! I only had the one goal, but I did complete it. I wrote 51,110 words in twenty days instead of thirty! It's a very rough draft, but I've now written eleven novels. :) I also managed to get some reading done last month too! :)

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Scorch Trails by James Dashner
The Death Cure by James Dashner
Burned (Dragons' Trust Book 2) by Krista Wayment

I read the whole Maze Runner series last month! It was very, very good! If you haven't read it yet, you should definitely put it on your "to read" list. :)

Goals for December:
* Work on revisions for "Somebody to Love"
Completely rewrite the ending, along with adding to the beginning.

* See "The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies"

* Spend Christmas with my family

* Create new yearly goals for next year


Those should be pretty easy! :) How did your goals for November go? What are you goals for December? I'm off to find another Christmas movie to watch! :)

  2. Congratulations on achieving your goals, especially NaNoWriMo. One of my goals is to get my Christmas shopping done before the 24th, which is often the day I START shopping.
