Goals [August 2019]

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


I’ll be reading and reviewing nine books this month. I have a list of books I want to read – whether I’ll stick with it or not, I don’t know. Though I’ve been utilizing my local library more often lately and my to-be-read pile keeps on growing.


I’ll be working on a couple of different projects this month, as usual. I’m going to do some final edits for Crossroads so that I can publish it on Wattpad in September. In addition, I’m working on the next Sunday Morning collection as well as the first book in my mystery series.

I made a list the other day of all the books I want to work on. The list is growing and I’m trying to give each and every one the attention and time it deserves without working on so much at once. I’ll probably write a different blog post about that soon enough though.


I’m still making some changes to the blog, such as updating the pages and post templates. In addition, I’m trying to get this month’s blog posts done as well as some other posts done for the future months.


August is going to be a busy month. I have a lot of work to do outside of writing and blogging, so I’m definitely going to need to find a new balance for the month. I’m going to try to come up with some sort of schedule to keep up with this work, around all the other work I need to do. New month, new goals.

  1. Good luck with your August goals. Finding a balance is something I’m still figuring out too.

    My goals are:
    *Read 9 books.
    *Watch 7 DVDs.
    *Finish the revisions on my adventure story.
    *Write the blog posts for August I couldn’t do ahead of time, and make sure any I haven’t done that can be written ahead of time for September are sorted.

    I’ll be trying to do those things while also continuing with puppy training, and doing the usual day to day stuff. I’m hoping I can figure out how to do all that, and still make time for sleep and self care. Hopefully we won’t get too much of that nasty heat to make things difficult.

    • A balance is so hard. My days for August are mostly filled with babysitting so it leaves little room for writing and blogging throughout the day. It’ll be an interesting month, to say the least, lol.

      Good luck with all of your goals as well. It’s going to be a busy one. Do you try to make a schedule for yourself or do you just take it day by day?

    • I’m trying to step back from being hard on myself. I’ve tried that and it didn’t have a good outcome. I work hard though. That’s no issue. 🙂
