July 2022 Goals

My writer productivity skyrockets when I set monthly goals. At the beginning of each week I break them down into daily tasks that will work within my current schedule. Do you know how great it is to finish projects? Of course you do! For me, setting monthly goals makes it all possible.

Every month I share how I did the previous month as well as my new goals. Let’s get to it!

How Did I Do? Jill’s June 2022 Goals

  • Writing
  • Write 42,000 words to finish the draft of Wyoming Ranchers book 6. CHECK!
  • Health
  • Exercise 5 days/week. NO CHECK. A medical issue kept me from exercising one week, and the following week I was out of town with friends. It’s okay! I’ll do my best in July.
  • Two raw veggies/weekday (I’m cutting myself some slack on the weekends) CHECK!
  • Counting calories using MyFitnessPal and sticking to reduced total calories on weekdays. CHECK!
  • Other
  • Read 15 minutes of fiction every weekday. KIND OF CHECK. I read a memoir instead of a novel one week.
  • Enjoy seeing a few really great friends! CHECK!

Jill’s July 2022 Goals

It’s been a busy summer so far, and I’ve been working long hours to meet my writing goals. It will all be worth it by mid-August! That’s when I’ll have plenty of breathing room in my schedule to plan out the rest of the year and work on projects I’ve had to ignore for a while.

How did you do last month? What are your July 2022 goals?

  1. June wasn’t bad. I got back to my walking and salad eating. Finished the draft of my WIP and started researching my next book.
    I have TWO books coming out within two weeks. A Christian historical romance with Pelican/White Rose July 22 and a nonfiction local history book with Arcadia Publishing Aug. 8. I’ve been busy setting up PR for both of those and got a lot done in June.
    — Writing. Go through WIP again and shore it up.
    –Writing. Research the new book/new series.
    — Writing. Continue to line up PR for new books.
    — Home. Continue to Go Through Stuff.
    — Health. Eat salads for lunch 3x week.
    — Health. Get my walking up to two blocks instead of one, or do one block five times a week.
    I’m building in time to go to the beach/mountains, either of which is just an hour from my home. And I’m building in time to enjoy summer!
    Thanks Jill, talk to you in August.

    1. You got a lot done in June! And you have a great plan for July. Congrats on the two book releases!

      I’m really glad you’re building some vacation time into your schedule, too. It’s important to have breaks!
