Hopefully, October was as productive and generally lovely a month for you as it was for me. There was a definite change in atmosphere, what with the cooler days and the shift into the winter wardrobe as autumn started to take hold.
My goals for last month were:
♢ WIP aim for 45k
♢ WIP comb through plot outline and finalise scene orders
♢ Finish online guitar course
♢ Update portfolio with current skillset
♢ Play guitar every day (when I’m not away)
♢ 6 Duolingo Italian modules
♢ Figure out what to do with my remaining annual holiday
♢ Draw or paint something
♢ Clear out my bookshelf
♢ Read Stormbird by Conn Iggulden
♢ Blog weekly (missed a week!)
♢ Finish off React and Node project (halfway through my project, I think)
♢ Downsize the things in my ‘art’ drawers (didn’t even attempt!)
♢ Declutter some things in ottoman (also didn’t attempt!)
I had a feeling I wasn’t going to get many of these done, but I’ve still surprised myself with what I have done!
Unfortunately, my blog writing did suffer halfway through the month, but I’m not going to let that take away from what I did manage to do! I got a lot further with my React project (although I’m nowhere near finished still, hence why I’ve not ticked it off), and I also managed to reach my word count aim for my current writing project.
♢ Aim to finish my WIP1 in NaNoWriMo!
♢ Finish off my React project
♢ 6 Duolingo modules
♢ Blog weekly
♢ Think about what projects to host for my developer portfolio
♢ Get rid of the dresses in my wardrobe that I’ve not been wearing
♢ Read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
I’ve finally learnt my lesson and have cut down my to do list for this month. As there’s a lot fewer than usual, I’m hoping to get through them all, although if I don’t, that’s perfectly fine as well.
What are your goals for November?
