Actually got some stuff done for a change, including one of the big writing things, Girl in the Forest’s reread and revision plan! Though I admit, the latter ended up being a mild cheat because I’d apparently done one back in February, but with that being such a crap time, I totally forgot!  I revisited though and tweaked it some.  Also realized I needed to mark off some failures as their deadlines passed, added two new goals, and made a few notes on others.

2017 Goal Check: July Check In



With it being halfway through the year, its time to revisit my goals, flush out the ones not happening this year, and add new ones related to my plans for the rest of the year.  While dropping some goals was easy enough, coming up with new ones and updates for the existing ones has been a challenge.

2017 Goal Check: Midyear Revisit



In this unscripted, personal episode, I talk openly, honestly, and at length about the things going on with my life, including the deaths in October and January, my physical and mental health, and the financial strain of both. I then talked about the plans for the future, including my plans to get the show back on track and the efforts to get back to writing again. And finally, I thanked my listeners and supporters for continuing to stick with me and being patient with my long hiatus.

2017 Goal Check: April Progress





Only one goal done this month, with no real progress on the rest, but I’m not going to beat myself up over it too much because I am acknowledging it was a rough month.  I’m more hopeful on progress with Going Indie in March, and with some of the other goals as well.
