July Goals

Recap from June:

Reading: Nothing. F–
Writing: Kept my streak. Didn’t write 100 words every day (missed twelve days–eek). Didn’t write any new chapters of Heaven. Completely forgot to fill a Writerverse prompt. Uh… D?
Finishing/Editing: Well, got chapters 26 & 27 finished and rewrote chapter 28 (but didn’t edit it). So fail. I did finish two other stories and edit at least a third. D+
Posting: Posted 3 of 7 chapters of Heaven. Posted 2 other stories! B

Crappy month but not a complete loss. Guess I’ll give myself a D for effort. Hopefully, July is better.

June Goals

Recap from May:

Reading: Nothing. F
Writing: Wrote chapters 27-32. Kept my streak. Missed writing 100 words three days. Not bad.  A
Finishing/Editing: Completely finished and posted chapters 23-25 but only partially rewrote 26 and haven’t touched 27. A-
Posting: I posted six chapters so not as many as I’d wanted. On the other hand, I posted seven other stories so that kind of makes up for it. A-

The F is bringing the grade down, but I’d give myself a solid B for May. I slipped on Heaven chapters but finished up a bunch of other stuff.

April Goals

Recap from March:

Reading: Zero. I don’t even have to check what my goal was. I read zero which is an automatic FAIL. F
Writing: Managed to keep my streak up and did write the next two chapters of Heaven Can’t Wait (although I never edited them) but didn’t write 100 story words every day. C
Finishing/Editing: I wrote first drafts of the next eight chapters of Heaven Can’t Wait. But I didn’t finish any of them. That’s two more than I planned. C (for effort)
Posting: Yeah… I posted nothing so… F

Another failure of a month. My mood has spiraled out of control and my meds aren’t working anymore. It sucks. I guess I get a D, though, since I did get some stuff done.

Monthly Goals

Recap from February:

Reading: Three out of seven. That’s 43%. F

Finishing/Editing: Finished one chapter of Heaven Can’t Wait. Finished nothing else. F
Posting: Same as editing… posted one chapter and nothing else. F

The month was a complete failure. Due to unforeseen circumstances out of my control. I’m giving myself an F but with a mulligan. It was a rough month.

Monthly Goals

Recap from January:

Reading: One book. That’s it. D

Finishing/Editing: Finished all the chapters! A+
Posting: I got caught up in my chapters which means I posted five. I also posted two other stories. A++

I guess I’ll give myself a C+/B-. I did a lot of editing which distracted me from reading and rewriting the novel. Still a lot of work done.

Monthly Goals

Recap from December:

Writing: Did my journaling every day. Got at least 100 words each day. Kind of forgot about the outlining. Two out of three ain’t bad, right? B
Finishing/Editing: Yeah… I didn’t finish the story and only edited 4.5 chapters. Derp. C
Posting: I only got 4 chapters of Heaven Can’t Wait posted. I guess that’s actually kind of good. B

Monthy Goals

Recap from November:

Reading: Four of Sixteen. That’s 25%. F
Writing: Well, I wrote every day–in my journal and for NaNo, but I didn’t manage the 1667 words each day. B
Finishing/Editing: Finished and edited in some way four stories and two chapters of a longer fic. But I only did that a few days over the month and nowhere near thirty. D
Posting: Three full stories and one chapter out of 30. Good for an average month. Failing for November. F

I’m going to have to give this month a D-. The fact that I wrote every day and came close to 1667 words/day saved me from an F.

Writing: I wrote every day. I even prepped for NaNo. I almost had an outline, but then I changed projects. B-?
Finishing/Editing: Finished and edited two stories! A
Posting: One story posted! C (because I hit my “realistic” goal)

Reading: Seven of 18 books read. Progress, but not much. D+
Writing: Well, I did my writing but not so much with the NaNo prep. C
Finishing/EditingF+ Because I added words to an April story.

That C sort of pulls the grade up, but the Fs ruin everything. Going to have to go with D for the month again.
