June was a busy month, but I don’t feel like I got much of anything done. I don’t wonder where the time went because I know it went towards teaching and grading, but none of my long term goals moved forwards at all.
I had been hoping to be able to publish a short and get it nice and cleaned up for selling it on Amazon, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I got clobbered with grading and lesson planning. I also owe a lot of critiques on my critique site, which does help me learn and helps me build relationships with other aspiring writers.
Still, I didn’t get any new words onto the page and I didn’t really get any editing done either. I also didn’t make much progress on studying for my exams or on my proposal, so June feels something like a wasted month. I’m hoping July is more productive.
To that end, I’m going to put up my little board thing again (to be fair, I had it up in June, I just didn’t track much of anything) and I’m going to try to check in with my goals daily. So… there is that. Also, I’m going to try to be quicker on the lesson planning and grading and I think I’m going to have to work outside of the home, studying and writing at home just doesn’t happen with the fluffies and Steven there to constantly distract me. So, I have a plan, and hopefully that can help pull me out of this funk I feel like I’m in.
