May Goals - Time to find a balance

Hi Friends- Wow. Has it been that long since I've been here? Yep, guess it has. Well here's what's on my mind; Every month for the past 12 months, I've made monthly goals. Most of them have to do with freelancing. And I've had some success with it too, which is fun. But what I miss is writing books.

So this month, my goal is to dedicate the majority of my time to editing/rewriting and marketing my books. I have several that are finished. One in particular, a children's book called, The Summer Snowball, has been on my mind lately. I know there's a place for it somewhere and I intend to find it.

I want to continue freelancing, especially since I'm finally making some money at it...Ah success! But I want to find a balance. I don't want to give up on my books just because the publishing industry is so huge. I don't want to give up just because I don't get the (near) instant gratification of publication, as I do with magazines. And I especially don't want to give up just because it's hard and seems impossible, that my little manuscript would happen to land on the right desk at the perfect moment in an agent or publisher's day.

I'll post more specific goals after giving this some more thought. Do you make monthly goals? What are they? ~Karen
