November Goals & NaNoWriMo

October is sadly over, along with my favorite holiday, Halloween. I did have a nice time celebrating with my family and friends! I just wish I didn't work so much. Working two jobs is just exhausting, but it's going better. It's time for an update in goals!

Here are my goals from October:
* Write to 30,000 on "Summer of Lies"

* Celebrate Halloween, my favorite holiday

* Girl's weekend in Minnesota

(We watched Mulan when we were on our girl's weekend and I kept using that line all weekend.) I didn't get any writing done other than the first page of two different novel ideas. But since it is November, I plan to do a lot of writing this month! :) I did do a lot of reading last month and read some pretty good books. (The ones in purple were reread - sometimes I just really enjoy reading a book that I love again.)

The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow #1) by Rachel Morgan
The Faerie Prince (Creepy Hollow #2) by Rachel Morgan
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
How to Be Brave by E. Katherine Kottaras
Love, Lucas by Chantele Sedgewick
99 Days by Katie Cotugno
The Realms of the Gods (Immortals #4) by Tamora Pierce

I love reading! :)

Goals for November:
* Write to 50,000 words on "Summer of Lies"
My current word count is 26,215 words. Yes, I already have half of this book written, but I've struggled to write anything on it in months. Hopefully this will help out! :) I do love writing as a group.

That's my only goal for this month! With the awful retail Black Friday coming up and getting more hours at work, hopefully I can at least write my book! If you are doing NaNoWriMo this month, good luck to you! My page is here if you'd like to follow along with my progress.


  1. I am only on Nanowrimo this year with my pseudonym Royme account. The first five days will be slow as I'm finishing some freelance work. Job work, what else can I say. But I plan to catch up. All the best with your Nano Kris and no matter how hard work gets let's both be glad we have jobs.

  2. No NaNo for me, but I hope to get some words down amongst my travels. Best of luck to you on your own writing goals as well as the whole Black Friday in retail thing. The idea of working in retail this time of year is terrifying to me :)

  3. I'm not taking part in NaNo this year, but I am hoping to be inspired to work on my WIP. I find working full time and writing hard to balance too. Best of luck with your goals for this month! You can do it!

  4. I'll do NaNo this year but will be happy with 10,000 words as this is going to be a busy month for me.
