At the beginning of this month, I pledged to:

  • Read 1 book
  • Write 2 short stories
  • Write 3 poems
  • Do 4 submissions
  • Write 5 blog posts

How did I do with that?

I read more than one book. In fact I read two whole books (although one was very short). I also finished the one I’d been reading before May, I gave up on one book part of the way through because I wasn’t enjoying it, and I started another that’s interesting but heavy-going. Not bad!

I wrote one short story and two poems.

If you count two submissions to the same competition separately, then I managed four submissions.

And this is my fifth blog post this month.

I also did quite a lot of work on my WIP. And I gave my first ever author talk, which went well and led to a lively discussion. So altogether I’m very pleased with what I’ve achieved this month. I think, in general, goals are good, as long as they are realistic and you allow yourself some leeway.

Next month I will mostly be preparing for an exciting time ahead.
