Update Day: Wait. Where’d June Go?

Hey everyone! It’s the last Friday of the month, which means it’s time for an update for my Got Goals? bloghop. More information and sign-up guidelines can be found here.

How I Did

Looking at my total income for the month, you’d think not that well, but that would brush aside the fact that I’ve had another surge of work coming in at the end of the month, which won’t show until July.
Besides that, I also did a lot of work that will hopefully have long-term pay-offs, which I won’t see just yet.
Writing-wise: I made my goal of a 10-minute average for the month.
YouTube and Social Networking: … Everything went well until last week Monday. I just haven’t touched ground since then. To give you an idea, I’m writing this at 10:44 p.m. on Friday night. Because it’s literally the first open moment I’ve had. I wanted to do this as a vlog post, but I didn’t have the time to record, much less edit the video.

Goals for July

I did a crazy thing and signed up for Camp NaNo. So the goal is to write 50k words in July and hopefully finish Book 3.
For me to do this, I really have to sort out my schedule so that I have at least two writing hours available every day, regardless of whether I have anything else to do. So this month I’ll be aiming for a 2-hour daily average for my writing.
If I don’t make that, it’s fine, but I think two hours a day is a nice amount that should be in the realm of possibility for me. So it’ll definitely be something I want to strive towards.
Here’s the thing, though, I want to do that without disrupting my social networking and freelancing. And this is often where I falter. I get the feeling that one or the other will fall by the way-side as I’m trying to sort all this out, but I’m going to cut me some slack and say that I’m going to call any progress in July a win.
What about you? Are you joining Camp NaNo? Do you manage to balance your life with your writing? HOW DO YOU DO IT? I HAVE TO KNOW!

  1. I’ve tried Camp NaNo before and failed due to all the demands of summer and keeping my family on track. At least they know to expect me to be unavailable in November.

    Best of luck with camp!
