End Of The Month Plans For Next Month

Hello, Readers!!

It is with great pleasure I can now announce that the paperback version of Poisonous Revenge is now live. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, you can find it here.

Often times, when we come to an end of a stage of life or year we look back and make plans for the future. This is not unusual for me. I do have to admit that I don’t wait until the end of the year. It is a wasted opportunity for me.

I think it came about when I started doing bullet journaling. At the end of the month, I look back on my spreads for the month. It helps me figure out which ones worked for me and which ones didn’t.

So, I believe this is an aspect that I have carried over to scheduling and other aspects of my life. I do have to admit that while I didn’t keep much of a schedule this month and ended severely disappointed with my word counts for the month that did give me a clue on what I needed to change.

I gave myself no word count goals for the day. I tried instead to give myself a number of hours to sit down to the computer. What this resulted in was a lot of time spent at the computer accomplishing nothing. I would watch youtube and grow more depressed with my lack of progress.

Given that, I have sat down and reworked my plans for the month. As I want to accomplish far more in my day and I have a busy month ahead, I’m going to work with a word count of 3,000 words a day.

That isn’t too big that I can’t accomplish it in a good mornings work. It also isn’t so overwhelming that it will take me all day to accomplish either. So, that is where the goal is set so that I can finish this book ready to be released before the end of fall.

That also still gives me enough time to get my short story done in time to turn it in at the beginning of September for the charity anthology. We are still within the means to release four books this year if I don’t take near as long to complete novels.

Today should also see me setting up my bullet journal for the new month as I haven’t gotten to that yet. I’m still trying to decide on June’s theme.

It is great to feel more like myself once more. The dark cloud that had been hovering over me for the last few months is finally gone. I can get back to my regular agendas and see the sunshine once more.

Depression is an ugly mistress. While I wish I could break things off with her moody little self, the medication helps and limits the occurrences as well as the length, but they do still come.

So, while I get busy on my list of things to accomplish today, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
