November. Hello, November. Aka, my favorite month of the year. Well, one of my favorite two months. I love the time from Thanksgiving to December. Christmas music, Christmas specials, do you get the drift? This year though, my mind isn’t focused on Thanksgiving or Christmas just yet, though.
I have a book coming out. In eight days.
In eight days.Â
In eight days!!
I really try not to think about it, but I can’t help it. After eight years, it’s finally happening.
Okay, okay, that’s not all that’s happening in November. I talked about all the changes in my life lately on Friday, but a lot of these changes are based on my actions, so it’s time to break down some goals.
October was a busy month, but November will be busier. Here’s what I had on my list for last month.
-finish edits with the editor â€“ this will happen in the next week.
-set up the Laura Teagan website
-get ahead on blog schedules
-announce new contributors
-stay on top of classes
-apply for jobs
-maybe begin working on TA2 edits? (also, TA2 has a title now!Â Double Played).Â
-enjoy my time with my family when I see them in College Station
-rock my midterm test
-organize all the files on my computer. Itâ€™s kind of crazy how bad it is.
I have a weird habit of getting half my goals done in a month. This past month was no exception. Hopefully I can break the habit this month? Maybe? Fingers crossed?
Without further ado, November goals.
-NANOWRIMO. I’m working on the second draft ofÂ Double Played.
–releaseÂ The Assassin.
–continue applying for jobs
-stay updated on hours for Priority One
-get ahead on blog posts
-finish website for Laura Teagan. like, soon.
-stay focused on school. This is the last time I ever have to worry about this.
Yes, this list looks short, but to be honest, it’s a lot of big things. I’m doing a big balancing act, so that’s all I’m going to focus on.
What are your goals this month?
