Do You Have Goals - June 2016

Hello everyone! It's the last Friday of the month and do you know what that means? It means that it's time to update you guys on where I am currently in regards to my goals!

I have been working on my novel on and off for the past couple of days. I'm close to halfway finished. At this moment there are 22,096 words. I'm trying to make it to at least 60k, or close to it. Most of the chapters are 2k-3k. At first I used to give myself deadlines on what month I wanted to be finished, but I've realized that it's best not to rush myself. Going with the flow is much better. Besides, despite of what I'm writing, it is only the first draft and will be edited over again, and a few more times before I hand it off to my editor! 

There hasn't been much book reading since the last book I finished. I have a few books on my list that I would like to finish by the end of this year. Most are Murakami novels, Pride & Prejudice, an Edgar Allen Poe short stories book, Frankenstein and finish The Strange Case of Dr. Hyde and Mr. Jekyll. 

I also have a watch list on Netflix that I have to finish. But since I know that I won't be able to finish all of the series before a certain time, I will be able to finish the movies most likely before the second weekend of July, or maybe by this upcoming July weekend. For more information on that check out my previous blog: Netflix Watchlist

Well, that's it for June update, lol. Hopefully by the end of next month I will at least be at 40k or more for my novel. I hope everyone else has been doing good on their goals!

By the way, I forgot to reply back to my comments on previous blog posts, but I will be doing that this weekend along with responding other people's blog for their updates on their goals!

Until then~ Everyone have a good weekend~!


  1. Congrats on getting so much written, and good luck with reaching 60K.

    1. Thank you for commenting, Pace! Hopefully I will reach 60k before the end of this year and no distractions and no procrastinating hold me back, lol.

  2. Keep writing... and don't worry too much about the word count, as long as you are continuing to make progress you're doing OK.

    1. Thank you! I've since finished my novel and felt relief when I did, haha. I still have to go over the next draft, but I still feel happy that I completed it finally.

      Thank you for commenting! :)

  3. Glad to see you moving forward. If deadlines don't work for you put that method aside and do something else. Flow on my Panda.

    1. Very late reply, lol, but thank you for being supportive! :)

  4. Keep chipping away at those goals. It's rewarding when you accomplish them.

    1. I finally accomplished my main goal! I am happy about that. Lol. Thank you! :)

  5. Yep. Most definitely. Seventh-Heaven. Lemme tella youse bout her...

    DELETE THIS PROMPTLY!! if you aren't seeking Seventh-Heaven...

    I realize the following is above any other superfluous objective mosta U.S. mortals can conceive; however, while I didn't descend into Hell for my sins, I ascended till I saw the Celestial City far away. Wanna heer bout it??

    Lemme fill-you-up withe efficacious epiphany, the avant-gardness and necessary wisdom to achieve Heaven, dear, if ya desire Heaven (many DON'T, preferring to stay 'laissez-faire' [i dont care] till death. Strange. The only other realm is one which you wont feel too cool).

    If 'freedom lies in being bold' (Robert Frost), doesn't pushing-the-envelope also result in the Elysian Fields of Utopia? And if I'm the sower, we plant the Seed; if I'm an artist, we RITE the symphonies heard Upstairs ☆IF☆ we accept His lead withe orchestra...

    Wanna find-out the fax, Jak, in a wurld fulla the 'power of cowards'? Wanna wiseabove to help a poor 'Plethora Of Wurdz' [POW!] which are look'n for a new home in thy novelty?? Yay!

    Q: But [gulp] can anyone tell me the difference between K2/IQ? A: Nthn. In Heaven, we gitt'm both HA! Need a few more thots, ideers, wild wurdz (whoa, Nelly! easy, girl!) or ironclad iconoclasms?

    VERBUM SAT SAPIENTI (Latin: words to [the] wise): As an ex-writer of the sassy, savvy, schizophenia we all go thro in this lifelong demise, I wanna help U.S. git past the ping-pong, pop-cult-politixx, the whorizontal more!ass! we're in and wiseabove to 'in fin sine fin' (Latin: in [the] End without End -Saint Augustine).

    "This finite existence is only a test, son," God Almighty told me in my coma. "Far beyond thy earthly tempest you'll find tangible, corpulent eloquence". Lemme tella youse without d'New Joisey accent...

    I actually saw Seventh-Heaven when we died: you couldn't GET!! any moe curly, party-hardy-endorphins, low-hanging-fruit of the Celestial Paradise, extravagantly-surplus-lush Upstairs (awww! baby kitties, too!!) when my beautifull, brilliant, bombastic girly passed-away due to those wry, sardonic satires...

    "Those who are wise will shine as brightly as the expanse of the Heavens, and those who have instructed many in uprightousness as bright as stars for all eternity" -Daniel 12:3, NJB

    Here's also what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

    Go gitt'm, girly. You're incredible. You're indelible. Cya soon. I won't be joining'm in the nasty Abyss where Isis prowls
    God blessa youse
    -Fr. Sarducci, ol SNL
