So, yes, we are now several days into November (six to be exact), and I am just getting my goals post up. This month looks very different to me than October did, so it was a little more difficult to come up with appropriate goals. Here’s what I decided on:
🍂 Blog Goals:
- Post at least 3 times a week, possibly excepting the week of Thanksgiving
- This month’s theme for Monday Mini: book photography and #AllTheBooksNov18
- Side goal: become more familiar with my new phone’s camera
- Review a minimum of 1 book a week; 4 total
- Participate in 1 blog tour OR get signed up for another reviewer program
- Begin thinking about what I want to do with RFtS in 2019
- Finish lining up content for December
- Be encouraging to other bloggers by commenting more often on really great posts
🍂 Reading Goals:
- Read at least one book a week for a total of 4. This can include short stories/novellas because November will be a busy month and I am not picky!
- Finish the theology book I’ve been reading and start a new one
- Read 1 other nonfiction book
🍂 Life Goals:
- Make tangible progress with freelancing
- Start Christmas shopping
- Redo my movie display in the library twice: once for Thanksgiving, then for winter
- Don’t drink soda or eat candy (sugar=migraine trigger so avoiding it this month should set me up well for the holidays, when there will be more around that is more difficult to avoid)
- Knit a new mug cozy, and decide if I’m going to make these as Christmas presents
- Support everyone participating in NaNoWriMo. (If you don’t know what this is, it stands for “National Novel Writing Month,” and basically it means a lot of authors are focusing very intensely on their works.) Seriously, y’all are taking on something incredible and I am here to cheer for each of you!
- Enjoy Thanksgiving, and take time to dwell in contentment with my family and everything I have been blessed with
I think that’s a solid list for this month! Everything is definitely attainable, but at the same time I will have to stay on track and be intentional with my time in order to get it all done. Follow along to see how it goes!
What are your goals for this month? Is there anything you are looking forward to reading in November? I’ve barely started Thief of Corinth by Tessa Afshar, and I’m excited to see where it goes.
Until the next chapter,
