Charts recognize that things could be worse. )

Specific goals:

1. Write at least six days per week (not on average). I would have made this goal, but I wasn't accounting for having out-of-town guests at the end of the month. I'll call it close enough.

2. Write and publish a story every week. Oh good lord no. I did make substantial progress on the FFXII story I mentioned, but it's not finished yet, and the rest of the writing went by the wayside.

3. Write and publish at least one article for Lady Business. I didn't manage this, but I did post multiple substantial things in my own journal this month.

It's also time for a mid-year check-in on 2017. (Do I haaaaaave to? Yes, yes you do. Okay, here goes.)

1. Sign up for [community profile] getyourwordsout with the intention of hitting the 150k goal. I haven't even hit the monthly target yet (this month came closest), so I don't know if this will be possible without a big push somewhere along the line. But I'll keep plugging away at it.

2. Keep up the regular linkspam posts in my journal; write at least one, ideally two posts for [community profile] ladybusiness every month; and stay on top of contributing to [community profile] ladybusiness anchor posts and group projects. Linkspam is down to twice a month or so, but I think that's enough. I continue to keep up on the regular Lady Business features. I'm still falling down on solo posts -- I did post two book reviews in May, but that's been pretty much it so far.

3. Participate in at least one Big Bang and two fic exchanges. Of these, at least one of these should be new to me. Still no. Sadly nothing has really jumped out at me so far. Any suggestions? I might have to dial back on this goal a bit, given that the year is half over and I haven't even started.

4. Once Wardens of Ivalice Part 2 is finished, pick a month to prioritize writing a first draft of Part 3, with a goal of getting it posted sometime in 2018. I expect do this sometime in the fall. September or October.

5. Find a fic prompt community I like and participate regularly. Recommendations welcome! [community profile] monthlysupergo has not turned out to be quite what I wanted, so it's back to the drawing board on this one too.

Okay, let's think about July. I have some travel at the end of the month and a banner number of social engagements throughout, AND work is likely to get quite busy. So I don't want to be too ambitious, but I don't want to give myself permission to slack off, either. Here's my attempt at a middle ground.

1. Write at least six days a week except while traveling.

2. Finish and post the FFXII story I've been working on.

3. Write at least two posts for [community profile] ladybusiness -- a book review and a mid-year media report.

4. Identify a fic exchange or Big Bang to participate in later this year.
