Two Month Update - Checkpoint #3

Okay, I'm a whole month late checking in. I was supposed to report on June 30, but I'll explain what happened.

As of the end of June, I had made terrible progress toward my writing goals. Life was getting in the way, stress was increasing at work, depression was getting strong, and blah, blah, blah.

Then I made up my mind. I was tired of not getting my book editing finished. At the same time, I've been trying to get my music business ready, but even that was suffering, since I was so depressed about not finishing the book and getting it out of the way. So, I decided to drop everything and finish that book. No more "just one chapter a week" nonsense. Just get it all done, and move on to the next project.

And that's what I did. I took two weeks and knocked out the remaining seven or eight chapters. Some I did in one day, and some I did in two days. Now it's ... Boom, baby! That goal is finished and done.

I only submitted one story during that two-month period (May and June), bringing my total to six for the year. Only twenty left to meet my yearly goal. If I do one a week going forward, I can still do it.

For blog writing, in May and June, I wrote eight posts in three of my blogs (just under one a week).

For the next bit couple of months, I'll be concentrating on my music business and getting that thing launched, so look for posts primarily on my music blog. I'll be back at the end of August to give my next report.

Good luck on your goals!
