Winding Down

There are only two days left in my summer. Hard to believe, but yes, pre-planning starts Monday. So I'm going back to that beautiful Carribean blue notebook I started the summer with (it's a little tattered now), to check in on my summer, er, goals.

The goals were . . .

1) Kickstart my exercise program.

Check. Monster #1 and I have taken up running together.

2) Be a better CP.

Well, I haven't had a ton to crit, but I did finally get E's chapters back to her, and I critted a partial for Carol -- the same MS she got a full request on at Nationals.

3) Get promo for What Mattered Most underway.

Survived my first author chat. Held two contests. Does that count?

4) Write a short online serial for promotional purposes.

Well . . . no. Not yet.

5) Prewrite/outline a new novel (or rework MOU and finish it).

I have almost three chapters on a new novel. I've made revision notes on MOU.

6) Get living room/kitchen renovations 90% done by first of August.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! I said what?! Yeah. Right. I did declutter the house, so all the extraneous junk is gone. And my laundry room is nearly finished. But I'm still living in renovation hell.

7) Outline 9th Lit/Comp, tweak 11th American Lit units.

Did it.

8) Maintain the pool.

Um . . . let's not go there.

How about you? How have you done with your summer goals?

I don't make goals. But it looks like you got quite a bit done on your list.

(And I won't even mention we have a full month of summer left because school doesn't start again until after Labor day...)

No, well, sorta. I wanted to finish up a 15k novella, not done. I wanted to write two proposals, only one is done.
