I m not sure I should call this a check-in as I have nothing to report! Partly because I haven't decided on my goals. I was all set to slope off into the background this round as I wasn't ready by the first to declare my goals but the ever motivational Lauren reminded me that I don't have to set goals that will last all round. And just because I wasn't there on the first of the month doesn't mean I shouldn't join in at a later date.
So. One for sure goal is:
1) Read two books a week for 100+ reading challenge (or as much as I can!).
I have read 67 books so am doing well but I think way behind with the challenge. I must find more time to read!!!
I want a writing goal but I just don't know where to head. I have nearly 60,000 words written of Matchmaker, Matchmaker but I seem to have come to a bit of a motivational slump. NaNoWriMo starts on the 1st of November and I really, really want to take part as I love the community and how productive I am during NaNo. I also want to start interacting with more writers in my area as sadly you guys aren't down the road! So I want to go to some local NaNo events. Hearing of people brainstorming makes me feel so exited and maybe it is what I need to kick start me back into writing.
However, I have a problem. I coud be a rebel and work on Matchmaker but I don't think there is 50,000 words left to go. I also feel kind of strange about starting something new when I am so far into Matchmaker however I did do this last year when I wrote my murder mystery in the middle of writing my last WIP.
So these are my options:
1) Be a NaNo rebel and carry on with Matchmaker but probably not win as there aren't 50,000 words left.
2) Don't take part in NaNo and carry on with Matchmaker. I don't like this option.
3) Start something fresh and return to Matchmaker at a later date.
Opinions? Advice? All will be welcome so I am going to set myself another goal to go with my reading one.
2) Work out what I am going to do next with my writing.
Not my most measurabe goal to date but atleast I am here!!! Hope everyone else has got off to a great start this round!!
