Well, we’re halfway through the year and it’s been a great six months of beating writers block and burnout back into the hell from whence they came with a very big stick. I tried to take some time off this month to rest, work on low-stakes side projects, and enjoy long chill chats with friends instead of constantly working, and I think it’s helped a lot. I’m still exhausted, but in a satisfied,…

august writing goals
For those new-er to following me, each month I like to do a start of month writing goals, and a monthly wrap up - mainly as a way to track how much I write and what I’m working on month to month. It also helps me not forget that fics I’m working on exist!
I think my goals for August are to publish the next chapters of every bit as feral and the jaws that bite. If I get those done, I’d be very happy! I’d also like to get another of the prompt fills for i like to call myself wound finished, I’ve been a bit stuck on them. I would also very much like to get one of my other OFMD fics closer to being published - it’s a bit ambitious to publish 3-4 things in a month for me, but we’ll see! Set high goals for yourself etc etc.
I think I’m also going to try and toss all the little snippets I’ve written that aren’t connected to anything into a fic on ao3, so that they’re someplace other than tumblr and discord lol.
Fic round up:
- sex worker Olu/Jim: 12.3K
- cowboy Olu/Jim: 11.3K
- i like to call myself wound: entire document is at 22K
- Jim/Ed modern au: ~16K
- long sad Jim/Ed with sniobhan totality: ~77K
- polyam hanahaki fic: 1.5k
- every bit as feral ch 7: 8K
- the jaws that bite ch 3: 7.3K
- nemesis au: 90K
- witch clayton au: 50K
Let’s see where the month takes me!
Just tryna figure it all out. And learning to not compare myself. Instagram
December writing goals
1. Write at least 200 words per day.
- It can be bad, but it has to be written down in some text doc
2. Finish and publish at least 1 WIP
- I have...soooo many wips that are at like 95% completion, I just need to pull the trigger on shipping at least one.
3. Read at least 3 books
- I gave myself a goal this year of 30 books, and I need to look at my list, but I know I’m going to fall a bit short of it. But I think if I can get my momentum and habit back through December, I can start off 2022 better fit to reach that goal next year.

Monthly Goals (July 2021)
I'm still figuring out the structure of monthly goals, I'm also working on several colab papers, so it's hard to estimate what exactly is going to be done by the end of the month, as all of the deadlines are in September and October. Let's call July a buffer month for this, haha.
draft up two state exam essays (mythopoetic and speech acts ones)
finished draft of Language and Politics paper (the topic is trans* discourse in CZ)
finished draft of Res Rhetorica paper (trans* discourse on YouTube)
read One Per Day
run 2-3 times a week
six week six pack (2-3 times a week, I don't necessarily care about the six pack per se, I just have really weak core and all I do is sit, so I need to strengthen my core to prevent injuries)
keep posting on Tumblr regularly, haha
Let's do this, July!
Revised June Goals
Nutrition - Document everything I eat in Samsung Health. When I document what I eat, I make better choices.
Physical Health - 30 min of any kind of physical activity.
Mental Health - 30 min of any kind of activity that promotes self love / mental health.
July Goals Recap 2022
July Goals Recap 2022
Hellooooooo everyone, I hope your summers are going well! This month went by much too quickly, and somehow the evenings and weekends I have off from work seemed like both a luxurious amount of freetime and nowhere near enough to accomplish all the things I wanted to do this summer. August will be hectic with moving home from KY, then back to school to start fall semester of my senior year, so I…

Hi everybody! Its been about a month since my last post so I wanted to update on how they went and what February has in store for me!
I completed a good amount of my goals but there were a few that I wasn’t able to cross off. I really enjoyed the way I laid out my post though because I often found my self referring back to my goals and instead of being disappointed that I hadn’t finished everything, I realized I could take a few minutes and cross one off. I struggled the most with the goals that took longer than a half an hour and I did the absolute worst on goals that required repeated action over the course of the month. So, this month I do want to focus more on habits. Overall, January could’ve gone better but I got some stuff done that takes some weight off my shoulders.
