Sunday Post #49: Lowering my Goodreads Challenge

Published by


The Sunday Post is a meme put on by Kim from Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a place for us to talk about whatever we want.

Lots of stuff going on. Work getting crazy. This past Friday was even crazier than usual. My boss has me put out like a motivational email each morning, usually a funny video or motivational quote. Friday was so bad, my coworkers made a comment about needing one in the afternoon. So I sent out an afternoon motivational message.

Deadlines are fast approaching, and waiting on others to do their part is putting more pressure on me, because they have other higher priorities and what I need them to do so I can finish my stuff keeps getting put off. Which just means I will need to put in extra time as the deadline approaches, which means less reading time.

I also have a bad urge to get back to writing. I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now. In fact it’s been almost a year. Wanting to get it on paper, or rather get it in the computer, I have been watching some writing videos to see how others plan out their stories. I need to work out some stuff before I sit at the keyboard to crank out the story, but have not yet figured out an outline process that works for me. This will also take some time from reading.

Seeing as how I’m already several books behind, I think I just need to lower my goal. So I’ve been taking the day to contemplate what to lower my goal to. I’m currently considering lowering it from 104 to 75. I think 75 is more doable, depending on the length of the books I read, and the format; but mostly the length.
