Round 2 of A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80) has been productive. I published my first young adult book, Chasing Memories. I survived editing, cover design, publishing, and starting the promotion process.
Yet, I would still say I didn't get done what I wanted to. But, I shouldn't say that anymore. It's my daughter's pet peeve.
Every day (or so she would say) after school, my oldest will ask what I did that day. And I say, "I got a few things done, but not everything I wanted to." One day recently she announced that she wasn't going to ask me anymore, because I always said the same thing.
It made me realize that I have to be easier on myself with goals and expectations. Or at the very least give myself credit when I accomplish something instead of always focusing on what I'm not getting done.
Round 3 is going to be an opportunity for me to find balance. I need to improve my social media presence (it's been slacking with publishing), crank out book #2, and promote book #1. And I need to come up with manageable and measurable plans to accomplish these goals.
Oh, and I'm returning to sponsoring. Yeah, me.
What did you learn in Round 2 of ROW80?
Or, if you are a visiting Blogathoner, what have you learned so far from blogging every day this month?
