RTW -- Quarterly 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 in March and one in July. Now that we're 3/4 of the way through the year, how are you doing on your goals?
  
What? No. Not possible. We can't be three-quarters of the way through 2013 already, right?? Wow. Goals-wise, I'm back in school, which means I'm back to settling into my usual routine. 
 
My reading goal for this year was 100 and, once again, I won't be meeting it. I'm up to 23 right now. I'd be higher, but I'm currently reading three books at the same time (one classic, one reread, and one for class). I also set a goal to read 10 classics and I'm up to 2. I'm taking a class on Tolkien, though, and I'm counting each of his books that I have to read for class as classics on my list.

My only writing goal was to write and that's going relatively well. I don't have a new WIP yet, but I have been working on revisions for my dragon-girl novel. They've been on hold while I'm getting settled, but I'll be starting work again very soon.

I felt the same as you- the year is already 3/4 over? Yikes!
Good luck with your goals. I've done good on the reading front but just now getting back on track with writing.

100 books in a year is super ambitious. But good for you for writing!
