Every now and then it can be a good thing to reassess goals. See if the original goals you have set are being met, if the goals need changed, or if the goals need totally removed from your list. I have decided since things have changed in my life it is time for me to reassess the goals I set regarding my writing.
Originally when I first started this blog I was completely unemployed and attempting to begin freelance writing. Recently I have been able to find a job, which is nice as I feel some of the pressure is removed from writing to make sure it earns money. This is a two edged sword per se and may also be a bad point. Either way, I guess the main point is at least I am still motivated to write and still working on freelance writing. Temporarily I also have another side freelance job I am working on from home. It is not writing, however, but is internet research.
I love to read, so the goal I set of reading two books a month is one I think I’ll keep. Though I haven’t kept up with the goal of two blog posts a week, I still think it is a goal that can be met, life has just kind of got in the way. Another goal I want to add is to start submitting my writing, which I still have yet to do and I have several things ready. Just need to try to find homes for them. The article writing goal is one I am deleting from my list as my priorities have changed and two articles per day was too much with the other projects. I’m still writing articles, but have also expanded to working on other things. Poetry, personal essays, and a few books are the writing projects topping my list these days.
