I can taste freedom!

I know it’s probably a strange thing to say, but I can see the end of June approaching rapidly and all I can think is YAY!!!!

As much as I love being a part of Kiwiwriters, being staff, being helpful and getting stuff done, I have totally overdone myself on the site in the last month or so lol. It’s not been nearly as busy as last year in some respects, but I certainly took on more than my share of work (totally on my own steam, no one pressured me, but as most of you probably know I’m prone to saying ‘yes’ too often).

So July is going to see me trying to take a step back, have a little KW holiday and not do much, that said, I did suggest we run a survey to find out the wants/needs of our members and how we’re doing on those fronts… damn me and thinking about stuff!

Anyways. I feel good. The winner’s certificate is done, the Collection is all but done – I just have to wait til all the author bios come back so that I can update the file and then we’re good to go. How lovely to be so close to getting everything done! Actually, now might be the perfect time to look back on this months tasks, and see how I’m doing.

Write the May news for Kiwiwriters – done
Post/email weekly pep talks – done
Audit comments on the klog (kiwiwriters blog) – done
Design winner’s certificate – done
Design cover for the Collection, format the ebook and print versions of the Collection – done
Write a couple of klog posts – done
Put up all the guest klogs – done
Moderate forums – done
Post zing thing challenge – done and I posted The End is Nigh as well
Get 1k a day written on TCM – yes, until I finished the challenge. I’ll be back into it tonight, and have started a short story as well. I’ll still end up with around 30K for the month
Oh motivate people – eh, not sure how well I did this! lol

So, amazingly, I’ve managed to do everything I was meant to, and a little bit extra as well. I’m really looking forward to July, and trying hard not to stack up a bunch of new things to do. I’m going to do Tama’s first chapter challenge, and finish writing TCM and this new untitled short story. Once those things are done I can get into Lifelines and take it easy for a bit. The garden is in need of some love and it’s the perfect time to be getting it ready for planting.
