Quest for Discovery

Quest for Discovery: Week Twenty Five

Hello, friends!

It’s mind blowing to me that June is already halfway done. Honestly, time just flies by too quickly for this kid to truly keep up with it. I’m bummed I haven’t been swimming nearly as much as I wanted to, but I’m really enjoying this summer schedule; kinda wish my hours were always aligned like this!

Long-Term Goal: Write two new books and edit two books. Enter the query trenches.

Last Week’s Goal: Enjoy writing break.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. And I got a game plan in motion. Taking a break until after Independence Day, then I’ll be editing Artemis one last time before querying it widely. After that, it’ll be first round of edits for Blood Price before sending that to betas and then the first round of edits for Artemis, book two, before finally (hopefully) getting another round of edits done for Blood Price to round out the year.

Weekly Goal: Enjoy writing break (effective until July 9th).

Long-Term Goal: Read every day, finishing up some old series and keeping up with new ones.

Last Week’s Goal: Read every day. Write review.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. Didn’t finish the book, but I’ll hopefully knock it out tonight, if not tomorrow. Though this isn’t my favorite one, I’m super excited to start my next read!

Weekly Goal: Read every day. Write review.

Long-Term Goal: Continue living a healthy lifestyle and shaping a body I love and am proud of.

Last Week’s Goal: Workout 4x. Log food.

Status: Affirmative, Commander. Had a good workout week last week and food week, until the weekend, when I completely let myself off the handle and ate way too much. But hey, every day is a different opportunity to continue being the best person you can be–and sometimes, that definitely includes cookies.

Weekly Goal: Workout 4x (assuming the weather holds). Log food.

Long-Term Goal: Learn to have a healthy relationship with money and build my savings.

Weekly Goal: *didn’t have one because I somehow forgot to actually include that?*

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. 

Weekly Goal: Pay off credit card and put money in savings.

Long-Term Goal: Reconnect with God and grow personally to live more like Jesus.

Last Week’s Goal: Start devotional. Continue to pray and trust in God more.

  • Status: Negative, Commander. Haven’t been thinking about this at all. Definitely need to make this more of a priority.

Weekly Goal: Start devotional.

Carpe Diem
Long-Term Goal: Find a reason to smile every day and something to get excited about weekly. 

Last Week’s Goal: Enjoy my writing break and get stoked for Sporting this weekend!

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. 

Weekly Goal: Find a reason to be happy every day. Plus, get excited for Jurassic World!


Last weekend was really awesome: between a needed DnD session that felt too short (but it was cut short because of me, so there is that) and a much needed catch-up session with the bestie, plus another Sporting match with my man, the start of the World Cup and seeing my family (and his) for Father’s Day; yeah, last weekend was really, really lovely! Looking ahead, however, that isn’t a weekend where there isn’t something planned in…a while, it feels like. But I’m excited for whenever that weekend arrives, because I’m either going to not move from my couch or the pool.

I can’t decide what sounds more glorious.

  1. It’s interesting to read your goals update. I had to laugh about the devotional. Sometimes I avoid devotional books because they are (dare I say it?) BORING. In fact, my next Christian-related book is not a devotional at all but a book about romance, anxiety, and faith called Leaving Oxford by Janet Ferguson.
