Update Day


Well. Short story is that I haven't done a single thing towards my writing/editing goals this month. Shoes are controlling my life! So much so that I'm literally stealing a few minutes just so I can post this update.

Still, this won't be going on.

First thing I want to do: Finish Critiquing Alex.
Second Thing: Finish edits to The Heir's Choice. 
Third Thing: Survive the next month on both edits and the shoes.

How did your August go?

Sorry you've been so busy. look forward to your critique.

Loni Townsend said...

Don't let those shoes walk all over you. :D

I hope you get a good hold on everything.

Angeline Trevena said...

The shoes are also very important, and we all need to let real life take precedence now and again. I didn't get far this month either, and next month I'm moving house, so I guess that's gonna be a wash-out too!

Connie Keller said...

Yeah, August has been that way for me too. Usually, it's languid. But it came in with a punch and I can't wait for it to leave. :)

Hopefully the shoes are taking over with your permission! Always remember that it's OK to change your goals and shift your focus, as long as you're the one in charge :)

My August was not the best. Let us both hope that we can grab September and make it ours!

Like me you haven't been sticking to your writing. I don't know how or where August went.

Patsy said...

I didn't do a lot, writing wise, for most of the month but this last week I've written a few stories.

Hi, Misha. It sounds like your shoe business is keeping you quite busy. I hope you are able to find the balance to your new business, writing, and home. Sending good thoughts. : )

I didn't do much of writing either, not just for August, but for a good number of months. But August was full as always, but the better part is that it brought me back to my blog and to writing again. So I understand what you're saying here. Good luck to both of us. Hope you can come by my blog at www.anne-writersspace.blogspot.com

I have to be a little flexible when it comes to setting and meeting goals, or I'll go bonkers. Glad to see you've set out some fresh ones here today.

Kelly Steel said...

I like that you have set out your goals. My August was great. Filled with work!

Nicole said...

Good luck with those shoes!! My August was busy, but fun...now to prep for the craziness of fall.

August? Oh crap! Did I miss August?

Awesome edits! You'll get there.

August was nice with a few hiccups. :)

Catherine Stine said...

Shoes are a great distraction!!! But it does sound as if you are getting back on track. My August had me writing frantically before my part time teaching gig began. I've taught two out of three classes so far and I have wonderful students, so it's worth the time away from writing. Just have to make sure I set aside time for myself.

Hang in there! You'll reach your goals!
