July Goals

July 2015 Goals

Reading:

With more free time this month, I’m going to challenge myself to read two books a week. That means eight book reviews as long as I can meet the challenge. Here’s what I’m thinking of reading:

1. Eclipse by Erin Hunter
2. Long Shadows by Erin Hunter
3. Sunrise by Erin Hunter
4. Paper Towns by John Green
5. I Am the Mission by Allen Zadoff
6. I Am the Traitor by Allen Zadoff
7. Spelled by Betsy Schow
8. I have too many books, I can’t decide. I may have to throw ideas into a jar and pick the book at random.

The books are this list are subject to change depending on whether I feel like reading something else or not. I go to Barnes & Noble every week. You never know what I might find on their shelves.

Also, my Reading List was updated with June’s books.

Writing:

I have to finish rewriting George Florence and hope to get started on editing it when that’s done.

Camp NaNoWriMo begins today, so I have to start writing Hunter to hit my goal of 50,000 words. As usual, I plan to write 2,000 words a day. Whether that will happen or not, I’m not sure.

In addition to that, I want to keep querying my children’s book as well as submit to magazines and contests.

It doesn’t seem like a lot in the writing department, but it will take up a good chunk of my time.

Blogging:

There’s nothing too new with the blog. For my reading challenge, I’m going to keep posting book reviews on Saturday, but I’m also going to post book reviews on Tuesdays for the month as I hope to get two books in per week.

I’m changing my Friday schedule yet again. I don’t know about you guys, but I just wasn’t feeling the weekly wrap-up. I decided to create prompts instead.

Every Friday will now be known as Time to Write and I’ll post a new prompt. I’ll participate in the prompt myself and I encourage you guys to participate as well. If you do, post your story in the comments and I’ll showcase the responses the following Friday before revealing the new prompt. I hope you guys enjoy that new feature.

July is going to be yet another busy month for me, but I’m looking forward to the challenges.
