How are you doing on your creative goals? Only four more months in 2017. It’s a good time to assess our progress.
In August, I completed two sketches and colored some pages in my coloring journal.
On the writing front, I wrote six poems. I tried a couple others, but they just didn’t gel. I shared two on ARHtistic License, Paradigm Shift and Horsey Limerick.
I’m currently three weeks ahead on blog posts. My comfort level is four weeks ahead, so in one sense, I’m a week behind…
I finished rewriting a third picture book manuscript, Lottie Loses the Lottery, which I am preparing to send out to agents. No nibbles yet on the other two, Gabe’s Garage of Goodies and Mine!
I bought the Scrivener software, and I am currently transferring The Unicornologist into it while doing another rewrite. Pretty soon I want to start reworking my 2015 NaNoWriMo project, The Night Runner, and I want to be familiar with Scrivener’s features by then.
I’ve run The God of Paradox through my critique group, and I’m getting ready to do a dry run with my bible study group starting in October.
I’ve been struggling with fatigue this month, so there were lots of days that I didn’t practice my instruments. I’m doing better lately, though. I’m still practicing the duets in the back of the Sweet Pipes Recorder Book 1 for the special secret project I’ve mentioned before. And I’m up to page 55 in Essential Elements for Guitar.
I performed in a choral concert on August 19. I’m planning to write a blog post about it soon.
Now it’s your turn. How are you doing with your goals? Don’t be shy! If you’re keeping accountable on your blog, paste a link into the comments below. Or if you don’t have a blog, just tell us your successes and your challenges this past month. And remember to check in on October 1, 2017, to share your progress during September. I created the hashtag #ALCGC2017 for ARHtistic License Creative Goals Challenge for 2017. Feel free to use it to tweet about your goals and your progress.
