Happy August, ya’ll!
Not going to lie, July was a really busy month for me, and I definitely do not reach my writing goals. To be honest the free time I did have was dedicated to getting Thicker Than Blood ready for re-release.
But now that it’s August I’m determined to get back on track. So here’s what I have planned so far for this month:
- reach 70k in Clara and Daphne –this was my goal for July, so it’s on here again because I didn’t reach it, and I’m so close! I’m currently at 67k, and I’m hoping with having a vacation this month that’ll actually help me have more spare time to write.
- TTB releases August 10th. There’s still time to pre-order the ebook if you want to start reading on release day! We’re 6 days away, so yes it will occupy my time for the next week or so, but I can focus more on my WIP now that we’re so close to release.
- The Hollow Knight pantheon is not at all writing related haha. But it’s the video game I’ve poured over 200 hours in, and I’m still working to complete the pantheon, so if anyone has any tips I’m desperate!
- Last but not least, I’d like to have new posts either for the website or new content for IGTV. It’s been difficult keeping up with my website, writing, and everything else in between, so I do apologize if I’ve been slacking. But I have so much I want to share with you guys, and hopefully this month I can some more content on here (or IGTV)
So those are my goals for this month. I’ve switched my daily word count goal from 1000 to 500 because I’ve been struggling so much lately with everything that’s going on. 500 is much more achievable for me at the moment, so I’m eager to have a better go at that this month after TTB‘s release.
My final WIP word count goal is to end at 90k. I’ve still got a ways to go, and now it’s looking like I might not finish until September or October –depending on how writing goes. It’s the first draft, and for some reason I’m really struggling with writing the last 20k or so.
What are your goals for this month? Let me know in the comments below, so we can cheer each other on!
I’m looking forward to all that this month has to offer, and I’m determined to make it my most productive and rewarding month yet!
Happy writing, ya’ll!
