Goals Check, April

We're not even going to mention the weight goal from now on, m'kay?

Only skipped three days in April. Added a little bike-riding to my repertoire, and increased weight on most machines, especially for lower body. Still not getting sore ever, so will be increasing weight even more.

1655 words, almost all copywriting. Total for the year is 92,984, which is now behind. I should have 116,668. But I'm starting a new book this month and plan to finish it, so I'll be back on track at the end of May.

I was at 36 books at the end of April, two behind. So I'm catching up!

No progress on the House goals. We did that whole room-swap thing for the girls' bedrooms, so I did bring home some paint chips. I guess that actually counts as progress.

Other things I did that hindered the above:

6+ hours of copyediting and proofreading.

13+ hours of medical transcription.

Part of a critique for one of my CPs.

Research and compilation of an agent list.

Submission of 14 partials and queries for Under the Moon.

Complete edit of Unbreakable.

Read three Entertainment Weekly and a couple of People and two RWRs.

How are you doing with your annual goal?

I have no annual goal. :-) I actually blogged about picking dandelions today. LOL! I take the Buddhist approach to goals--joy is in the journey (though I do have goals, swear it!).

P.S. But you sound busy!

Your approach has merit, obviously, but setting and achieving these goals appeals to my competitive nature. Even if I'm only competing with myself. :)

I definitely see how it can work for most people. I know I was always Type-A and very driven (right down to skipping my senior year of high school and heading off to college). I do actually write out New Year's goals--but it's more a roadmap for dreaming for me--and I figure the jounrey will meander. :-)

That's the best kind of journey, especially for a writer. :)
