Goals for June 2017

Time to do a roundup of my goals from May and look at what's coming up for June. I'm trying to get back to posting these nearer the start of the month!


  • Add 5000 words to Book 3 of my series. Accomplished this and hit 50000 words; aiming to add 10000 more by the end of this month.
  • Start working through CP notes for book 2. Check. I'll be continuing this in June.
  • Start working on a promotion plan for book 1. This is taking shape, including putting ideas together for a cover, which for the first time I'll be designing myself. I'm hoping this'll be fun!
That's about it for now. Have a great weekend!

The cover might be more fun than even the writing.
Double the word count - you can do it!

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like you've got a great plan on what to do and are motivated to do it. Good luck!

Cheering on your great goals. You can do it!

Personally, I find cover designing great fun. It uses a different set of skills than writing, and feels very mind-expanding and empowering.

BTW, I nominated you for an award at my blog. No pressure; it's just for fun and can provide an easy blog post for you.

Best wishes and Happy Writing! I'm behind you, brother, wanting to finish book fifteen of my self indulgent novelette series this month. Keep us updated.

Jean Davis said...

I like to think of cover design as the reward for wrapping up the book.

Great job meeting your goals and good luck with adding more words!

Wow! Sounds like you're doing some great work! Way to go, Nick!

Well, since I caught this post halfway through June, I hope you're doing well on your goals. =D

Those are great goals. I'm trying to juggle books too, but need a stronger work plan. I keep getting diverted. But it's one step at a time, eh. At least, that's what I keep telling myself!
