Mid-Year 2021 Goals Update

I will let you in on a little secret… I never posted 2021 goals for the year. Not that I didn’t have any, but I mixed my reading, real estate, and writing goals all together in a post at The Book Connection and never looked back. Yikes! So unlike me.

Honestly, I was coming off an unusual year where I spent a lot of time reeling from my father-in-law’s death from COVID and a real estate year where my volume increased despite all the craziness of 2020.

Since I set aggressive real estate goals for 2021, I only set two writing related goals for this year:

Increase my editing volume

Choose one writing project to finish

I can’t say that I’ve done much about the first one. I am editing, but not as much as I planned.

I’ve chosen to finish Amelia’s Mission, which makes sense since I am 21 chapters in. There are probably only another 7 to 10 chapters left to this story, so that is manageable.

What will I need to do to get this goal accomplished?

  1. Time block my calendar (I hate time blocking)
  2. Review my real estate systems to find and implement efficiencies
  3. Get an assistant to help with marketing tasks
  4. Spend less time on social media

I really need to find my focus. My publisher is asking for more work from me, but I know that picture books take forever to get to market. A middle grade novel is a good choice.

Wish me luck!
