March was a busy month. I’m running behind schedule as seems to be the story of my life, but still there was a lot to get done and even more as April flies into view. So let’s get an update on what my March goals were and see where we ended the month.
March Goal List:
-Send off First Newsletter
-Send The Alpha’s Dream to the Editor
-Build up my ARC Lists
-Execute Phase #1 of my Marketing Plan
-Finish Second Novella
-Write/Edit 2 Shifter Shorts
So here are the updates. The list is still long. I successfully created my newsletter, but have not sent even one out. The Alpha’s Dream did not make it to the Editors as I’m still working on my second draft Edits and the novella and shorts are just plan out of view.
The only things I accomplished completed were Building my arc lists, which is an ongoing thing, and executing part one of my marketing. Those are two important things and I’m working hard on them, but my aim is always to complete my goal lists.
I’m torn between being completely disappointed that I’m not hitting my lists and also recognizing that I have more time constraints than I give myself credit. This isn’t a fun thing to come to terms with, but it must be done.
I have to just adjust. Adaptability to the circumstances of my life are the only things that will keep me put together right now. My husband, my children, my pregnancy, and all the other events going on have a level of priority that I have to respect. Sigh.
It will only get harder when baby three is here in may, but I have to find a groove. My dream needs to flourish and it means I have to make the time. No one else is going to do the work for me. Every part of my dream come with it’s on obstacles. I cannot let myself forget that.
Over the next month I will be taking a serious look at my time constraints and determine what are the most important things I must do to keep pushing toward my end game. Hopefully, the conclusion will be a more efficient schedule and better execution. We will see.
