Let’s Set April 2024 Goals

My writer productivity skyrockets when I set monthly writer goals, and it’s time to share my April 2024 goals. At the beginning of each week I break them down into daily tasks that fit 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 what my new goals are. Let’s get to it!

How Did I Do? Jill’s March Goals

  • Writing
  • Polish/submit book 5 in my Wyoming Legacies series. CHECK!
  • Plot and write sample chapters for book 6 in Wyoming Legacies series. CHECK!
  • Continue exploring ideas for next Love Inspired series. CHECK!
  • Polish nonfiction project. NO CHECK
  • Continue writing a side project for 15 minutes two nights/week. NO CHECK
  • Health
  • Exercise 5 days/week with more difficult sessions 3 of the days. CHECK!
  • Continue healthy eating with few processed carbs. CHECK!
  • Personal
  • Read 15 minutes of fiction every weekday. NO CHECK
  • Continue watching season 2 of The Way Home. CHECK!
  • Work on crochet project–even if I only add one row! NO CHECK

As you can see, March was a mixed bag. I met my top 3 goals for writing, and I came close to meeting the 4th. But the side project? I didn’t work on it a single night. Not one!

As for the health, I did good through March, but I’m munching on Easter candy at the moment. Yikes. 🙂

I did read every weeknight, but I ended up reading 3 nonfiction books and only 2 novels. So no check for me. I’m almost finished with Season 2 of The Way Home. Still loving it!

  1. Great work, Jill!

    I turned in a short story to a publisher for consideration in a new anthology collection. Now it’s a pray-and-wait game.

    This month, I’ll have an edit job, but I’m still planning on finishing an outline and getting a start on a first draft or two. (I have four stories in various stages at the moment [five if we count the turned-in one].)

    1. I’m praying the wait leads to a yes! I’m so happy you’re outlining and starting a new draft. Yay! I hear you on the multiple projects. It’s challenging to juggle it all!

      1. Thank you so much, Jill! I am incredibly blessed to have such prayer-oriented friends. Yes! The juggle is very real.
