We’re not talking about April.
Not even a little bit.
Even this is too much.
Seriously, stop talking about it.
There’s still just over a month left in the round (give or take), which means it’s not too late to join in!
As the writing challenge that knows I have a life (it’s words, not mine), ROW doesn’t mind when I join in, or that the first 6 weeks of the round were a complete write off (lol, no pun intended because there was no writing involved). It embraces my life a hell of a lot more than Camp NaNo did. That was a mistake.
Ooops. Talking about April again. Nope. Change the subject.
My goals for this round are pretty much the goals I had last round because, let’s get real, I didn’t achieve them last round. I don’t particularly care, I didn’t achieve them because I was adventuring and being on exchange and living in Edinburgh.
I was life-ing, and life-ing is just as important as writing.
I have more life-ing lined up in the weeks between now and the end of the round (June twenty-somethingth). I have one uni essay left to write, a flat to move out of, friends to farewell, countries to visit, and days to cross off until I’m reunited with A (all of which you can read about on my travel blog – please go and read it…please!).
But hey, I am always the optimist, so I’m going to remain optimistic that somewhere in between all the life-ing I have planned I’ll find some time to write, and plan, and create.
Now that that giant ramble is over, let’s get onto the actual goals.
An oldy but a goody: finish the rewrites of Rebellion. Or at least most of the rewrites. A good chunk of rewrites.
Listen to more audiobooks. Read more books. I’m not going to give myself a number because numbers are not how I work. Just generally read more.
Start planning NaNo novel. Work on visual diary. Sort out writing notes.
Get back into regular posts on this blog. ROW updates, WIPpets, writing stuff, book reviews, general stuff that is somehow related to writing.
Also get back into my main blog/travel blog and social media.
Finish planning/booking holidays for June-August.
Finalise uni stuff for my final semester of my Bachelor’s degree.
So they’re my big goals. Smaller goals for the rest of this week (until Sunday):
– spend LOTS of time with my amazing American flatmates/friends before they LEAVE ME
– write History essay
– visual diary work: characters
– send first seven chapters to potential beta readers
– visit WIPpeteers because I didn’t get to last week and I feel bad
