WIP Goals

Here's YA Highway's Road Trip Wednesday question of the week:
Quarterly check-in: we did one in March and one in July. Now that we're 3/4 of the way through the year, how are you doing on your goals?

Wait. We're 3/4 of the way through the year??? Noooooooooooo.................

Okay, now that my panic attack over not getting anything accomplished this year while getting ever older is over, I can answer the question.

I think this is the first time I can check-in with a favorable response. This past couple of weeks has seen me back into my WIP like I never left it. Although I didn't set any goals at any of the other check-ins (not even at the beginning of the year), my goal now is to have my WIP done by December. I've even had the thought that maybe, just MAYBE I could get it done before November and then do NaNoWriMo for the first time ever. But we'll see about that.

What about you? Have you been accomplishing your goals like the keener you obviously are? Just kidding. Way to go you. :D


  1. With goals, I only have two responses: Yes, I reached my impossible goals like the robot I am, Or Nope, not even close. They released some new DLC for Halo, and well, I like the sound deadlines make as they go whooshing by!

    Which is to say, both yes and now. We'll see.

  2. Congrats on making your goals and staying on track. It's hard with a family, marriage, and life.

    Myself, my goal is to finished with my edits and be query ready by Dec. 31. I don't know. I have good days and not so good days, but as long as I work on it every day, I'm okay with it. I don't want to rush it and turn out a poor product. You know what I mean?

  3. Good for you for fulfilling your goals! NaNoWriMo is a blast. You should definitely participate.

  4. Yay! I'm hopefully going to do NaNo too this year, we can be NaNo buddies :)

  5. I'm also trying to make time for Nano. It is SO much fun, but that means I'll have to write around 50,000 words between now and November 1st... so, maybe next year. :-)
