  1. I only managed one and a alf stories per week, but it was enough. For August I am going to work only on revising ad submitting, at least three stories a week. Wish me luck!

  2. The only goal I posted last month that I completed was to finish updating and to publish the new version of my website.

    I’m already behind and posting for this month, but here are my goals for June:

    To work on my novel for at least one hour each day, especially on character arcs.

    To submit four poems to a collection that my former colleagues are putting together. Yay! I finally got this one yesterday. I’ve been trying to make myself do it for couple of months. I’m starting this month off better on the writing front than I have for several months.

  6. Hello, and a happy june to you all!
    I am currently starting to explore a more serious, committed relationship with my writing, and I just finished a coaching session where I discussed this exact topic. So seeing the email in my inbox was definitely a delightful and welcome synchronicity! 🥰
    So this month, my goals are to:
    – Dedicate an hour each day to my book!
    – Write (as in, FINISH, 100% of) one creative piece a week (poetry, prose, fiction, or perhaps non-fiction as well.)
    – Don’t let my organization system fall by the wayside!!!
    Excited and inspired and willing to do my best and learn no matter the outcome!
    Best wishes, and take care everyone!

  7. In May I wrote to the prompts every ding dong day, yay! I went to morning sprints on the regular (3x per week), pretty sure I didn’t miss any … maybe one.
    In June:
    Finish chapters work up for Elemental Girl
    Write summary for Elemental Girl
    Supply 6 stories to some friends for specialized critique
    Submit at least twice

  8. Hi everyone! First time posting 🙂 I wanted to do StADa May, but way too much was going on. This month I’m setting some more realistic (maybe) goals…

    1. Write 5,000 words this month.
    2. Make progress on my children’s book, specifically revisions after the editor sends my manuscript back and finding an illustrator.
    3. Finish rough drafts on two unfinished short stories from earlier this year (baby diary and Christmas petit fours).

    Wish me luck everyone! Hopefully putting these goals out there for the world to see will push me to actually do them 😅😅
