This is the last #writemotivation Monday… for January 😀 I did get a lot of positive feedback for continuing the hashtag and its motivational oomph! So, that’s what we’re going to do.

February will be an all out cheer each other on month. Kind of like January was. Feel free to blog about your goals and motivations, but please don’t feel obligated.

You’re welcome to post your goals for February here. If I get enough people posting them – I’ll do up a post listing them so you can hold yourself accountable to them and make it easier for others to cheer you on.

In a week or two, I’ll post a new sign up for March’s #writemotivation month along with a list of ‘prizes’ for those who achieve their personal goals and participate in cheering others on to achieve theirs.

Remember – it’s not about beating the other people, it’s about winning over your inner critic and achieving your personal best at what you set out to do.

My Goals for January were:

1.Finish the paper edits of books 2 & 3.
2. Start 2nd pass of Book 1.
3.Keep up with my Google Reader
4. Make at least 2 blog posts per week

Granted, though I kept up with my Google Reader, I think I’d like to comment more. Sometimes I just don’t know what to say, you know?

My personal writing goals for January were:

Paper Edit TDP-2
Outline H
Paper Edit TDP-3
Start next pass on TDP-1

I also worked on the revision of my Query letter – which was for March 😀

All in all, January was a very productive month for me. Thank you to everyone who cheered me on in #writemotivation even while I was sick.

In February my #writemotivation goals will be as follows:

  • Finish TDP-1’s third draft
  • Plot H
  • Write H
  • Critique for M
  • Critique for H
  •  Don’t take on too many crits

I’m mentioning the last one because I have a habit of taking on more than I can chew and well, overwhelming myself.

So, those are my goals so far this year. Make sure to pop over to Rach Writes and keep an eye out for the next Platform Building Campaign.

How has your January been? What are your plans for February?

Regardless of how you think you did? I believe you deserve some chocolate:
