New Goals October-December 2016

Hooray autumn is here! I love this season. Is it just me or do the last couple months of the year always seem to go by faster?

Previous Goals

Here are all my goals from July-September.

1.Make a banner for this blog.

Done. I also put this banner on twitter. Two of my character drawings are in it. 😀

2.Add favorite songs to media server.

I’m cutting this one off my quarter goals and just putting it as a goal that I need to do eventually. Lol. I’ve put this one off too many times and I don’t think I’ll do it this quarter either.

3.Get Mocha to stay at long distances.

Done. 😀 Mocha is such a good girl. If you don’t know who Mocha is, she’s my miniature Chocolate Labrador. Lol. She’s just really small compared to average sized Labs.

4.Draw a character  Draw another Character?

Wow…um so I definitely drew more than one character. I drew Artakin, Baust, started Rithia and will finish her later, as well as started redrawing Alsar! He is coming out great. I posted a preview of him on my instagram. I can’t believe how good my drawings have been coming out, considering my first drawing of Alsar is embarrassing. Lol. I don’t even want to look at it again.

5.Draw the lady that’s going on my cover.

I already marked this one off a while ago.

6.Platinum Uncharted 4

I failed this, but not terribly. I already beat it on the hardest difficulty. Every now and then I have been getting the collectibles. And once I finish that and beat the game under 6 hours…I think, then I will have the platinum. I’ve been putting it off since I’ve been busy writing. And when I do get a chance play it, it’s usually multiplayer with my SO.

7.Map my book

I put this one off too. Pushing it to this quarter.

8.Find and contact cover artists

I’ve already decided on who I want. Marking this one off.

9.Make sure characters and places in my book match my lists

I failed this one too.

10.Look for editors

Nope. I still haven’t. And I don’t think I’m going to do it this quarter either, but it will remain on my to do list.

11.Work on my map

Didn’t happen. I’ve been too busy applying my beta feedback. I’m planning on drawing it by hand, so it’s going to take some time.

12.Buy one more indie book and read it.

Ugh! I want to do this. I’m adding it to the new quarter.

I completed 5 out of 12. >-> I’m so ashamed. I will try harder next quarter.


New Goals

1.Finish applying beta notes and edits

I love my betas. ❤ Thank you!

2.Add all my new notes to the story

I came up with some new ideas because of beta feedback.

3.Re-read the entire story after I applied all feedback and my notes

4. Map my book

I have a feeling I might not do this one because of all the revising I’m going to be doing this quarter.

5.Make sure characters and places in my book matches my lists

6.Buy at least 1 indie book and read it

I’m going to do this one! I swear!

7.Hold a giveaway

So, I’m debating whether or not I should do a giveaway this quarter. It’s not a typical giveaway. It won’t cost me money, but it will take up some of my time. I’m not going to announce what it is, so you’ll just have to wait and see when I’m ready to announce it.

8.Platinum Uncharted 4

I want to get this done before Final Fantasy XV comes out.

9. Finish drawing Alsar

I’m sure I’ll do this one, but I’m adding it anyway since it has been taking me longer to draw him than my other characters.

10. Look for editors

11. Work on my map


Hopefully I will get more done this quarter. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
