My Goals for September!

Time for my monthly goal post again, August went so quickly! The air's starting to get a little cooler here, which I am immensely relieved about; I'm fed up of being too hot!
I think I did pretty well on last months goals, which you can find here.

Last month's goals:
1. Get more overtime; I tried to get more overtime, but we've not been busy at all at work recently, and I spent most of August rushing home to write for Camp NaNo! It's getting much busier now though, and I already have myself down for extra overtime, which is going to kill me but hopefully it'll be worth it!
2. Finish Camp NaNo - check! I succeeded in writing 50000 words by the end of August, and I'm very proud of that achievement!
3. Writing my entry for the What if? Fairytale Blogfest - I did this in time for the deadline, and you can find my entry here.
4. Read more books - I read another couple from my unread pile, which is good. I only have about 5 more in my unread pile now, which means I can go back to my old favourites!
5. Keep up with my blog during Camp NaNo - I didn't do so well with this goal, but I didn't stop blogging completely, so that's a plus! I missed most of my Saturday posts, but I managed to carry on posting on Mondays and Thursdays, so it wasn't too bad.

Overall, I think I did pretty well with my goals in August, but hopefully I can do a little better in September. Here are my September goals:
1. Pursue a Masters degree in Creative Writing - this is a very recent goal for me, but last week I got an email from prospects and it reminded me that in January I was thinking of doing a Masters degree, and the idea has taken hold of me again! It's a hard goal to pursue, because I didn't get the best honours degree (I got a 2:2) and if I do get onto a course, it'll cost me a lot and I'll have to get a loan from the bank. However, I'm determined!
2. Get more overtime in - should be easier this month, because we always get busier in September. In fact, we shouldn't quiet down until after Christmas, now, so lots of opportunities for overtime! I need it more than ever now, because of goal number 1!
3. Practise my keyboard - I didn't practise at all in August, so I need to get motivated again this month!
4. Read - as always, continue to read plenty of books, and review them for you!
5. Get back into my blogging schedule - now that Camp NaNo's over, I'll have time to write more flash fiction for Saturday's posts.
6. Have an awesome time at Centerparcs! I'll be going on the 17th for a week with my mum and sister, and we're going to have such a good time! It'll be nice to get away for a bit and relax. During this week, I'll probably not be posting, unless I get a chance to update while I'm there.

So there we have it, my goals for September! Oh, I have one more; play The Sims 3 Supernatural lots, since it comes out tomorrow! Hopefully it won't get in the way of my other goals...

  3. A Masters degree in Creative Writing sounds like a big goal. It is a real shame these things are so expensive to do these days.... But I reckon you will do it if you take it on. Just tell the bank they can have 10% of the royalties to your best selling novel to pay off the bank loan and you will call it quits at that.
