So, yeah, it’s May already and I can chalk up one more month where I’ve not made deadline on the Year of Creative Pursuits.

Let’s see how I managed while not thinking about my goals at all.

Goal: Finish 4 Books this year:

    • TCC
    • TBM
    • ADM
    • S&S Book 2

Goal: Finish 12 Short Stories this year:

  • JH
  • HHI
  • CN
  • UB

Goal: Finish the second edits of S&S for turn in… oh last weekend. DONE DONE and Coming out in 8 days (or so).

Goal: Earn enough outside of my day job to be able to support a brick and mortar location for IGB next year. — Not yet, my loves, but I’m working on it. 

Goal: Decrease the clutter in my office and life by selling at least 1 item per month. (12 items total) — Sold 1 scarf & a DVD, that makes this goal 7 more pieces. 

Goal: Put my art out as well as my writing by selling items on Etsy. (At least 6 items) — Finished 2 small canvases, but I haven’t listed them yet. 

Goal: Finish the stuffed cupcake. — Started working the bottom in wool x-stitch. We might actually do this this year.

Goal: Write 1 flash fiction piece for this blog each month (12 total).  Four months behind on this one. 

Goal: Set up Patreon — So, the account is set up, but I haven’t created the levels yet. I’ve started filling out the profile part. Hey, it’s a step forward. Sort of need to hit this one quickly before I drop out of “creator” status again.

Goal: Check in monthly on goals (make them more granular as necessary) —4 months down! 8 to go. This is working. At least I have a chance. 

Goal: Comment regularly on the blogs which I read. Not just my friends’ blogs either. — I’ve made a point of commenting on my friends’ blogs, but I haven’t managed to start commenting the blogs of people I don’t know regularly. Still.

So what have I been up to? Getting ready for AwesomeCon at the end of the month. Listing a bunch of things on eBay in an attempt to help out a friend and get more things out of my life. I’ve got some things up on Facebook as well. We’ll see if those sell.

I’ve finished the final edits and proofing of Sugar and Spice which comes out THIS MONTH!

I started working on promo for Codes by Briane Pagel which came out at the end of April and I love. (Need to put up my review on my other site.)

I recorded a couple of videos which I will link to from here and my other blog. (1 is a haul video the other is an unboxing.) This makes me super nervous, the we’ll see.

I’ve felt amazingly underwater for months now. I’m off to mainline some caffeine and see if I can’t get all of my work grouped up tonight.
