RTW: Halfway Check-In

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic. We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic:  
Quarterly Check-In: We did one back in March, so now that we're just past the halfway point of the year, how are you doing on your goals?
I can't believe it's July already. And I can't believe it's ten days into July! Where is my year going? It seems like just yesterday I was celebrating New Year's with my family. 

Anyway, reading-wise I'm way behind with my goal of 100 books. I just hit 20 books read so far this year yesterday. I have to read about 13 books a month in order to make it and once I'm back in school, there's no way that's going to happen. My goal to read ten classics this year is going a little better. I've read two so far (Turn of the Screw and A Study in Scarlet) and I'm progressing slowly with Sense and Sensibility. 

Writing-wise I'm doing a lot better with my goals. I just finished the first draft of my WIP on Sunday and now I'm taking some time to relax and catch up on reading before I decide where to go from here. There are some major revisions ahead and I'm already starting to brainstorm.

I'm the opposite of you. I've been reading plenty- I've read 40-some books so far this year. But my writing has sort of slid away this summer. Hopefully I can get back on track.

Congrats on finishing your WIP!
