How is it April already? One third of the year is already gone! That means its time for me to assess my goals for the next quarter of the year. The first three months of 2019 were pretty good all things considering. I have written more each month, I started exercising again and am making slow progress in that area. I have read 17 books so far. All forward progress.
Now that it is April I am committing myself to a couple challenges to keep my momentum going. Starting on April 1 I have decided to walk at least one mile for the next 100 days. I plan on doing more than one mile most days of the challenge, but even on busy days or days when I want to do nothing I am at least doing a mile. I think it's important to get into a real habit of being consistent on my workouts and I have lots of support with this challenge.
I am also taking part of the Camp NaNoWriMo this month. Now I am not trying to write the 50K words that I would try to do in November, but this month I am trying to get 25k words in. I am hoping to finish book two of Port Stone and get it to my editor by the end of the month. I also want to get closer to finishing Quest for Self so that I can get it to my editor by the end of May. Lots of writing to be done, especially with edits in the mix.
I am also going to be working more on my art this month and for the rest of the year. I am not only painting miniatures, which is an art form all in its own, but I also am going to teach myself how to oil paint. I have a new art setup and am excited to see what I can learn and do. I have a series in mind, but first I want to get comfortable working in a new medium.
Last quarter was a good start to the year, now let's see what the next three months have to show us!
