New Month New Goals {With Free Desktop Wallpaper!}

Hey guys! It has already been a month! Isn’t that crazy? I feel like just last week, I was doing my April wrap up post! And here we are now! I’ve decided instead of doing a wrap up post for May, I wanted to try something new! (You guys will have to tell me how you like it.) It is a new month. Which means we need new writing goals for this month. You guessed it, we are doing a goals post! And even if you aren’t a writer, you can still participate in this post! It is good for everyone, regardless if you aren’t a blogger or writer. Without further ado, let’s jump right in!

First, we are going to start with some guided questions that will help you create your goals for the month of June. If you would like, you can grab a piece of paper and a pencil. I suggest that because I know for a fact that if you write down all your goals, you are more likely to remember them and accomplish them! So hurry and go grab that piece of paper!

Quick question, before we get into the real questions. Why am I doing this post? Well, it’s summer for a lot of us which means we don’t have school, etc. So what better time to start writing? Hopefully, this post can get you into the groove so you can accomplish your monthly goals and your summer goals! Alright, I presume that you have your paper right now. If you don’t……*narrows eyes*. *Claps hands* Okie dokie!

What is your purpose in writing this book?

Think about that. Why are you writing this book? Why are you writing in general? Is it because you want to teach a truth or a message? Or maybe it is because you’ve had these characters talking in your head for the past month and you needed to write down their stories?

Wren: *Clears throat* Hey, your-

*Shoves him away* Sorry guys, he can’t come in yet. You’ll meet him soon! 😉

Or do you use writing as a way to travel to new places? As I like to say, everything exists. I believe in everything. Fairies, mermaids, gnomes, unicorns, etc.

They are all real. If you can imagine it, it’s real. So, what is your purpose? Write that answer down and make sure you NEVER forget it. It will help you in rough times.

What do you want readers to learn from your book?

Is there a special message that you want to scream from the rooftops? Is there something you’ve always wanted the world to hear? Now’s your time to shine. Your book can change so many lives. It can change the WORLD. So let me ask you this, what do you want the world to hear?

*Claps hands* Now’s it’s time to get into the goal setting. You can set goals for just June, or for the whole summer, or even for the rest of the year! We are going to set two types of goals: an improvement goal and a time goal.

Your Improvement Goal

What do you want to improve on? Are you struggling with character development, scenes, internal conflict, villains? Are you struggling with finding inspiration or motivation? Are you struggling with finding time to write? Now take whatever you want to improve and figure out HOW you are going to improve that. Are you going to set time each day in the morning or night to write? Are you going to watch a YouTube video each week to improve your villains? Are you going to find a writing exercise to do each day? Make sure you write down your goal and make sure you complete it! (Note: This can apply for anything, not just writing. Maybe you need to improve at soccer, or practicing the piano!)

Your Time Goal

Now, you need to set a goal time wise. Are you going to finish your first draft by this deadline? Or maybe you are going to finish plotting by a certain time. Maybe you need to be a certain amount through the book by this date. Whatever you need to do, set a deadline for it. It will motivate you more. And make sure you write this goal down too! Write down how you are going to accomplish it before the due date.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this post and were able to write down some goals! I’ve created a desktop wallpaper for you to help you with your goals and the things you need to get done this June. You can grab the wallpaper right here!

April Monthly Wrap Up + KotLC Challenge

Hey y’all! How’s everything been going? How are your writing prompts coming along? You officially have 11 more days to submit! (Yes I’m counting!) I’m so excited to read all of your entries! Today’s post is an April Monthly Wrap Up. I don’t usually do wrap up posts but today I’d thought I would give it a try and see if I want to continue doing wrap ups!

Writing Prompt Battle!

Perhaps this may have been my favorite month so far! I loved reading your answers for the KotLC challenge, I LOVED writing Two Things a Writer Must Never Do, I’m so happy that it was Maggie’s birthday, and my favorite post of all time was my most recent one, Writing Prompt Battle.

~Writing~

Amount of Words Written: 104,602 (Most counting towards blog posts and comments!)

Where Written: 3/4 on computer and 1/4 in notebook

WIPs Progress: Currently world building on one, and gone into full blown pantsing on the other.

~Bullet Journaling~

In March I was very thorough with my bullet journaling but as April rolled around, I was a bit more busy and didn’t have as much time to dedicate to my journal. Thus, I didn’t bullet journal hardy at all. I’m hoping that in May I can set aside more time for it. Question: would you guys be interested in bullet journal posts?

~Books~

I honestly did not keep track of the books I read so let’s see how this goes.

Legendary

Let the Sky Fall

Let the Sky Fall (Sky Fall, #1) by Shannon Messenger

Aaaaaand I forgot the rest of them. But I estimate that I read about six books in total.

I made it to FCCLA nationals and qualified for a track competition!

And that’s it for the Monthly Wrap Up! Tell me below if there are any other categories you would like me to add if I were to do another wrap up! Let’s jump into today’s KotLC prompt!

If you haven’t see the first post of this challenge check it out right here. Basically, at the beginning of each month and the end of each month, I will post a KotLC prompt for you to answer below. The challenge is to answer of all them! I will continue this until November when the book will be released! Here’s the prompt:

If you went on an adventure, which three KotLC characters would you take and why?

And that’s a wrap! Cut the cameras! Cue the credits!
