Okay–so this is a new thing I’m starting each month, a bit of a to-do list post where I share my goals for the coming month, plus a recap of the previous month. Of course, this time around I have no recap, so it’s just the list. I’m thinking three to five items are good, not too overwhelming, and maybe-hopefully this will keep me accountable throughout the month.
Finish up One-Girl Bicycle Club #006. I have literally been working on this for months–since we moved into the house–but I’ve struggled to put anything together. I write pieces, then feel like they’re no good or they’re too short or they’re not timely enough. My goal now, though, is just to suck it up and finish. I’ve got a word count goal I want to meet before putting it together, and I’m feeling very positive about accomplishing this one.
Do ten full push ups. I might be able to do ten modified right now, but I’m not positive, and even though I’ve been exercising lately, I haven’t done much to really gauge my improvements or anything, so I think at the very least making note of how many full push ups I can do is a good way to keep track.
Choose a name for my lit zine. I’m hoping to put this one out in December, so I need to come up with a name asap to start putting out a call for submissions. Originally I was just going to focus it around food, but I think I’m going to scratch that idea and just keep it open to basically anything I like–mostly because I couldn’t think of a name when I was focusing on food. You can be sure this is one I’ll post about as soon as I accomplish it, though, so I can start getting submissions! Doing a lit zine has kind of been a dream of mine for a few years now, so I’m excited to finally start working on this.
Spend more time outdoors. I have this wonderful, adorable porch, and I don’t spend nearly enough time relaxing on it. Granted, our house is next to a pretty busy street, but it’s still nice when the weather is good. I’m thinking a few hours a day, three or four days a week. I can watch people walk by and maybe get away from the distractions aplenty to be found indoors (eh-hem, Netflix).
Y’all got any plans for the month? Anything in particular you want to get accomplished?
