I’m sure many bloggers have the same idea for today’s post, and I want to post my reflection and goals for the upcoming month.
Yes, that time is upon us – the end of another month. Last month, I had so many goals for my writing, and sadly, I feel short of those goals. June was more hectic than I planned for. However, I plan to accomplish my goals in July. Last year, around this time, I was preparing to leave the only life I’ve ever known behind and drive across country. Now, I’ve been living in California – San Francisco Bay Area – for almost a year. It’s been an interesting journey so far, and I don’t regret leaving my family and friends behind.
Since 2016 will be ending in a few months, I feel it’s time for another big change. For the longest time, I’ve wanted to get a full-time writing job, or at least a part-time writing job. I feel like now is that time. I’m ready to transcend, to finally take the leap towards my goals. In July, I plan to do the following:
- Submit a short story for publication
- Join a writers meet-up group
- Start interviewing for full-time and part-time writing jobs
- Enroll in the Creative Writing program at Berkeley
Of course, these goals will stay the same =)
- Write Clash of Tides
- Write Love for an Angel
- Write 9/Nine Realms
I’m scared but also excited for July. Every time I submit something for publication, I’ll make a blog post. My first submission will be rejected, I’m sure of it^^
To my fellow writers, what are your goals for July? If you don’t write, do you have any other goals for July? Is anyone else making a major change in their life?
