Orphans of the West Series Tales of the East

Of goals, flying time, and proof copies

Time sure does fly. It seems like only yesterday that January started and now it’s ending already. . I just realized I never  posted my January goals. Sorry about that. First, I’ll list my January goals and how I did with them and then I’ll share my February goals.

  • Write 31,000 words Not quite done. My month was busier than expected, so I only got 25,720
  • Prep 3 blog tours, three for me and one for a client Done!
  • Publish ’Tis So Sweet Done!
  • Finish HLM edit #1 and send to beta-readers Done!
  • Finish HHMS final edit, send to formatter, and order proof copy Done (see pictures below)

As you can see, I finished most of my goals. My writing went slower than I expected, so I didn’t quite get there, but I think the writing I did was good, so I am happy. And here are the promised pictures.




February Goals

  • Work on compilations
  • Finish Tales of the East #2 outline
  • Finish Tales of the East #1 rough draft
  • Finish two blog tours (one for me and one for a client)
  • Finish Tales of the East #1 edit and send to beta-readers
  • Finish HLM edits #2 and 3

What are your goals for this month? Do you like seeing my goals each month or would you prefer I discontinue sharing them?

<p>I am Faith Blum, author of over 25 books. Most of them are Christian Historical Fiction. I am a small-town Wisconsin girl. I have lived in, or outside of, small towns my whole life. The thought of living in a city with more than 60,000 people in it scares me, especially after some interesting adventures driving through big cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.</p> <p>I currently reside in the middle of the state of Wisconsin with my husband and our cat, Smokey. I am blessed to be able to have writing as my full-time career with household work and cooking to do on the side. I am also teaching Writing Lessons, doing writing consulting, and am slowly building a Young Living Essential Oils business.</p>

  1. I think it’s fun reading goals others set and seeing how close them came, and when the reached them. I’ve never been much of a goal setter myself. Maybe I should try it. 🙂 Love the cover of HHMS! Makes me want to read it. 🙂 Oh, dear, so many books I want to read!
