May goal check-in; life goal check-in.

I handmade my bouquet. Definitely put my blood, sweat and tears into this. When the pin went through my thumb, all three happened at once.

So May didn’t go exactly as I planned. My goals and where I stand now, on the eve of my wedding week festivities:

1) Rework few small sections of 1st novel based on recent feedback. Made some revisions to Chapter 1. 
2) WIP: finish 2nd draft of first 7 chapters.  DONE.
3) WIP: finish outline. Not touched.
4) WIP: write 3 more chapters. Nope. But I have written at least 2k words so far in revising first 7 chapters.

I know it’s not the end of the month so I technically DO have time to make more progress, but my sisters arrive from the U.S. tomorrow and we’ll be spending time together for the weekend, before meeting up with my mother and everyone else next week. The rest of May is pretty well planned out, but it is one major life goal that’s being accomplished this month. I always say that by age 30, I had two life-long dreams come true: I moved to the UK, and I met the man I would marry. That’s not too shabby, given how much wandering my path has done to this point. This month we’re getting married and committing to each other for the rest of our lives. That’s pretty huge. So I need to stop beating myself up over these goals and just take a breath and relax. After this month, I’ll be rejuvenated and ready to get my fingers back on the keyboard.

Thanks to all the #writemotivation writers for encouraging me this month, and for understanding! GOOD LUCK with all your writing, and I will be checking in on blogs and Twitter as I have time!
