November Goals

It's been a long time. I've been dealing with a lot the past few months. And I admit that I haven't been myself. I wasn't making jokes and laughing at funny puns. Stress. Too much stress. It's harmful and it's made me feel like I'm not me. But I'm trying. It's getting a little better, though I do still find myself staring out the window and thinking of nothing.

I want to be me.

I want to get back to things that I love. So, I'm making myself goals for this month. Even though I haven't made goals in months.

Goals for November
* Write to 50,000 words on "Summer to Forget" for NaNoWriMo

* Enjoy my short vacation trip to Wisconsin to visit my friend Amy :)

* Spend time with family for Thanksgiving

Only three goals. I'm trying to make it easy for me to accomplish. I haven't written in so long, so I'm hoping that this will go well. I have been really behind on my reading goal, but I managed to catch up last month. I read quite a bit! :) I'm actually one book ahead of my goal at the moment and I'm happy with that progress. Here's the books that I read last month. (The purple ones are rereads.)

Among the Enemy (Shadow Children #6) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Among the Brave (Shadow Children #5) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Among the Barons (Shadow Children #4) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz
Among the Betrayed (Shadow Children #3) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Among the Imposters (Shadow Children #2) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
What Price Honor? (Star Trek Enterprise #4) by David Stern
Shockwave (Star Trek Enterprise #3) by Paul Ruditis
Broken Bow (Star Trek Enterprise #1) by Diane Carey
Among the Hidden (Shadow Children #1) by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Star Trek by Alan Dean Foster
Desperate Hours by David Mack

Not bad at all! :) I'm happy with my reading last month. I'm hoping I can keep up this month. I picked a few shorter books, but I remembered how much I love reading. I have a new pile to read too! :)

How have your goals been lately? Are you doing NaNoWriMo? :) If so, good luck! Write like the wind!


  1. Just now, we are preparing for a Christmas visit from our adult children. Lots of excitement all around!
    In my Susan Kane, Writer site, I am writing a next post to be ready some time in spring. Each post involves research my family history and photos. Grueling at times, emotional, but rewarding.

  2. Be well, and wishing you well getting back to you! :)

  3. I see your blog daily, it is crispy to study.
    Your blog is very useful for me & i like so much...
    Thanks for sharing the good information!
