Let’s Set July 2024 Goals

My writer productivity skyrockets when I set monthly writer goals, and it’s time to share my July 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 June Goals

  • Writing
  • Write, revise and polish sample chapters for the first book in a new series. CHECK!
  • Revise Wyoming Legacies book 6. NO CHECK.
  • Continue promotion prep for Training the K-9 Companion  CHECK!
  • Health
  • Exercise 5 days/week with more difficult sessions 3 of the days. NO CHECK.
  • Eat at least 5 fruits and/or vegetables every weekday. CHECK!
  • Personal
  • Finish making a Christmas garland for a gift. NO CHECK.
  • Continue reading Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov (this is a looooong one–I might never finish it). CHECK!

While it looks like June was a mixed bag for goals, I actually accomplished a lot. I came very close to revising the full manuscript for Wyoming Legacies book 6. I’m still working on it, but it will be done soon. And the main reason I didn’t meet my exercise goal was due to travel. I participated in a readers event and took a few extra days for a writing retreat. Loved every minute of it!

I didn’t finish making the garland because I was lazy. But…I finished reading Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov! I didn’t think I’d finish it, and yet I did. This felt like a big win. 🙂

My July goals are pretty sparse, and I’m fine with it. I’ve worked long hours for the past twelve months. I’m ready for a slight break in the schedule!

How did you do in June? What are your July goals? I’d love to hear about them!

Man’s best friend…
Could be the key to a second chance.

But Cade will do anything to prove he’s a changed man, even train the small K-9 alongside Mackenzie Howard. Soon the weekly sessions with Mackenzie have Cade wishing for more. But will he risk revealing his shameful past for a chance at acceptance?
