Wow, that’s a lazy title, but it’s as good as you’re getting.

I’ve got my 3-day writing challenge scheduled for Labor Day Weekend. I’m going to be at First Fridays in Sept. in Manassas, VA. And I don’t think I get to relax until December…

Let’s look at what I’ve gotten done on those little goals, yeah?

Goal: Finish 4 Books this year:
◾S&S Book 2

Goal: Finish 12 Short Stories this year:

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. Have a nibble on a possible location though, so it might be sooner than we think.

Goal: Decrease the clutter in my office and life by selling at least 2 item per month. (24 items total) — Sold 1 magazine, 1 jacket (current total 19). I may need to up this to a goal of 36/yr.

Goal: Put my art out as well as my writing by selling items on Etsy. (At least 6 items) — Finished 4 small canvases, but I haven’t listed them yet. *winces* I need to get on this one. It’s all down hill from here.

Goal: Finish the stuffed cupcake. — Haven’t touched it this month.

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

Goal: Set up Patreon — I 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) — 8 months down! 4 to go! Isn’t that a perfectly terrifying thought.

Goal: Comment regularly on the blogs which I read. Not just my friends’ blogs either. — Not yet. *wrinkles nose* commenting is scary.

Goal: Hit all the deadlines for the business. — I don’t think I’ve missed any yet…

Goal: Make Book Lover’s Bazaar come off without a hitch. — Met with the person donating the location. That’s a start. We have several people signed up for it. Just need to get payments

Goal: Finish the Waterhouse x-stitch. This will probably spill over to next year too. — Working on the carpet right now. I’m trying to do at least one strand of stitching a night.
