Bi-Monthly Goals

Bi-Monthly Goals

I can’t believe how long it has been since I planned and wrote down goals. And you know what happens when I don’t write them down…they don’t get done or more often than not, it gets forgotten about.
Naturally, I have written various to-do lists, but nothing that constitutes a plan of action. Which was sorely needed as I tend to get a little flaky, then procrastination sets in.
Since I have ramped up work on book one of The Evolved Series, I thought perhaps it was time to sit down and think seriously about my short-term and long-term goals.

Short-term goals:-

  • Finish updating website. This is mostly window dressing, no extensive coding required…I hope.
  • Write a minimum of 3,000 words per day.
  • Finish pinning scene cards to plot board.
  • Divide scenes into chapters.
  • Get up at 5 am, walk the dogs and write for an hour while the household is still asleep.
  • Finish the first draft of Evolved by the end of the July.
  • Revise draft until it is ready to go to editor for the final edit by August.
  • Publish “The Evolved” by late September if all goes well with edits.
  • Research editors.
  • Look into Beta Readers and Critique partners.
  • Commission cover designer – This I have done. I have a fabulous cover designer working on concepts as we speak.
  • Finish detailed outline of Book Two – This is almost done.
  • Update Dragon Black Press company website.

Long-term goals:-

  • Marketing for the book series.
  • Write, edit and publish two books per year.

 

Bullet Journalling:-

I love planning and planners. Especially Erin Condren. However, of late I have been looking at the advantages of bullet journaling¬†for organizing my time in a more personalized way. The EC planners are fantastic, but they are not really suiting my needs with regards to project planning, writing, and my home life. Ideally, I need something I can adapt month to month should the need arise. ¬†I have been researching layouts on Pinterest getting a feel for what would work for me. We’ll see how I get on with that.
