June Goals | 2017

This month I’m taking a page out of Jenna Moreci’s book and holding myself accountable for my writing and general writing goals – publically. Though rather than keep track of myself quarterly like she does, I’ll be keeping track of everything monthly (mostly because I know I’ll keep up with nothing if I try and do it quarterly. I’m awful.) The intention being:

  • Public humiliation for failed goals serves as a motivator.
  • Success with goals breeds continued success in the future.
  • The last inch of perfect organization for myself is reached and I’ll actually be keeping up with the 500 thousand things on June’s to-do list.

So –

  • A blog post a day. Habitual content creation, etc., etc.
  • 1,000 words minium of original writing a day; at least 30,000 words towards the current current WIP story by the end of June.
  • Have Tumblr set up and linked to this blog.
  • Have Patreon set up and ready to launch for the Fall.
  • Wrap up last month’s unfinished projects; can projects that I’m never going to complete/don’t feel like writing on anymore.
  • 15 shorter pieces through the month of June.
  • Steady commissions coming in.
  • Consistent client work.
  • Daily reading.
  • Don’t stress.

We’ll come back at the end of June and see how well I’ve actually done on all of these.

  1. Those are all awesome goals. Good luck as you strive towards them.

    I’m a fellow writer who’s new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.

    • Hey ^-^ First, thank you. I’m getting into the habit of doing regular writing/blogging and it’s been an interesting journey.

      Second! The most valuable advise would to be consistent – in what you post and how often you post. Find out what it is you want to write, figure out how often you’re wanting to put out content, and then stick to that. Nix what doesn’t work; keep what does. I’ve had various blogs over the course of a few years and the most successful, enjoyable ones, have always been ones on which I’ve been consistently active and consistently putting out good, quality content that people enjoy. It also helps to engage with other writers and bloggers, but go at it with the mindset that you want to expand the circle of people you’re communicating with and interacting with, not so much trying to fill a quota of people that you can attract to your blog. It’ll make your interactions all the more fullfilling and enriching.

      Other than that? Have fun. Don’t stress it too much. If you’re not enjoying yourself, your readers won’t be enjoying what you’re doing, either.
