June Writerly Goals


I can’t believe June is over already, but it was a great writing month for me! I had five goals, and I met them all.

I finished my edits on the manuscript I wrote back in April for Camp NaNoWriMo. My deadline was June because I wanted to go ahead and get the manuscript out to beta readers. Prior to the start of the month, I had one beta reader lined up, so another goal was to find one or two more. Success on both counts! I got the manuscript edited and sent it out to my beta readers!

Speaking of Camp NaNoWriMo, I’m doing it again in July, so I needed to prepare. Preparation is key when trying to write a first draft in thirty days! I did some preparation, though not as much as I would have liked. I have a good handle on my characters and the setting, plus I have quite a few scenes mapped out, so I feel good about starting writing on July 1!

I desperately wanted (and needed) to get into a blog posting habit, so for June, I wanted to experiment with blogging twice a week. Wednesdays and Saturdays seemed good to me, and with the exception of being too busy one Saturday, the experiment was successful. In my defense, the one Saturday that I did not blog was because I worked the whole day finishing the edits on my manuscript. I did post the next day, so I have posted twice a week each week in June.

My last goal was to experiment with writing fragmented flash fiction, which is also called segmented or mosaic flash. It sounded like a cool concept to me and I love writing flash anyway, so I gave it a shot. I didn’t publish it, because I wasn’t truly happy with it, and I thought it would be a good idea to get more familiar with the format before sharing it with the world. But one day, I will do that!

June was a great month writing wise, and I can’t wait to see what July brings!
