Mah Goals – wc 30/12

Done. It’s over. Christmas is done for another year.

The boys are still receiving presents from various sources, but I think the flow has ebbed now. Thank goodness! The thought of more wrapping paper and boxes makes me feel twitchy.

As I suspected, last week was a wash out. Not much done and now there’s a lingering malaise which is only partly to do with a recurrence of that bizarre allergic reaction I talked about some time ago.

Sorry the post is late, too. I went to the doctors this morning and then straight back to bed. I woke up at 6pm! I guess that means I’ll be up all night now. :p

Last Week

Start real work on ‘I Need A Break’ rather than just thinking about it.
Yeeeah… no. Just no. 😦

Check daily for paid work.
Again, mostly daily. Quite a few of those days though, all the sites had shut down. Not too surprised by that, but I’ll need to kick things back into gear for regular extra income when the new year comes in.

Make rough list of what I want to achieve in 2014 in preparation for goal reassessment.
Yep. I’m starting to think I’m overdoing it just a little, but I have some time to adjust, it needs be. Ambition is good, but being unrealistic is just damaging. So I’m going to look over the again tomorrow and do a little bit of tweaking.

Continue working on ‘Eric & Morgan’ at least 500 words.
Just the 500 words. Could have done better in a normal week, but I think with the influx of family and friends, this was pretty good going.

Leave SORB alone! Don’t change it, don’t mess with it, nothing!
Still avoiding it. Though the piece is growing on my mind now so, I’m thinking mid January, I’m going to print the whole thing off and start making notes on paper. Not my usual method, but since I wrote the whole thing in an unusual way (for me) I’m going to continue trying new things.

Oh, yeah baby. Good food, the never ending turkey, lovely presents, wonderful company and not too much chocolate. What more can I say besides; yeeeeeey!

Goals For This Week

Since it’s the end of the year it’s a very short list. I’ll be kicking a new set of goals into gear when I do my usual round up of the year, but before Wednesday I would like to do the following.

  • Another 500 words of ‘Eric & Morgan’
  • Continue to check for paid work
  • Finalise outline of goals for 2014
  • Write and post offering for Phoenix Subs Club blog
  • Continue to leave SORB alone! Don’t change it, don’t mess with it, nothing!

Woop. Sorted.

I’m really looking forward to 1 Jan! The coming of a new year isn’t usually so busy with glee, but this year… I don’t know… maybe because I’ve already achieved so much… I know that I can do what I set out to do with the right levels of planning and dedication. Makes looking forward a really positive experience!

I hope you guys can say the same. I’ll see you on the other side. ^_^

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.
