Goals [May 2019]

Goals May 2019 | Creative Writing | Reading | Blogging | RachelPoli.com


It’s Mystery Month again! I’ll be reading four mystery novels this month in celebration. You can keep an eye on my Goodreads to see what I’ll be reading.


In addition to Mystery Month, it’s also an editing month! Following the 85K90 Writing Challenge calendar, I’ll be editing three different projects – George Florence & The Perfect Alibi (2020), Sunday Morning Volume 2 (2020), and Crossroads (Wattpad, June 2019).

I’ll be on the second draft for two of those projects and the other will be on its “final” draft. At least, final for me until I can find an editor.


It’s Mystery Month, which means the majority of my blog posts will be about the mystery genre. My book reviews will be mystery books as will my writing prompts. Short Story Sunday will have a four-part mystery short story. So, I hope you’re all looking forward to that.

If there’s anything about the mystery genre you’re interested to know, let me know in the comments and I’ll try to do a post about it.


I’m looking forward to May. I feel like I have my head on straight again and I have a lot of good things planned. Plus, the warmer weather should be here to stay! I can’t wait to get started on my edits and work on some new side projects.

What are your goals for the month? Let me know in the comments below. If you liked this post, please share it around.

  1. Those are great goals… Good luck with them!

    My goals for May are to finally finish the first draft of my adventure story, read ten books, and watch six DVDs. Other than that, I just want to enjoy the things going on in my life right now, like walks with hubby and the dog.

  2. Okay…I have to admit that I’m a HUGE mystery fan…So I’m super excited to see the reviews for the books you’re reading! I am new to your site so I have to ask…what are writing prompts?

    • Yay! Glad to know another mystery fan. 🙂

      Writing prompts are basically writing “ideas.” I post a new prompt every Friday and people will post stories on their own blogs based on the prompt I’ve given, which can be the first line in the story, or basing the story off a picture I give, etc.

      • Ooooo. That’s an awesome idea! I have to keep an eye out for when you post one…. I love to write and challenges are awesome! 😉 I’ll let you know when I post mine, it’ll be my first time so you can tell me if I suck or not, lol.

Let me know your thoughts!
