Month End – February accomplishments

Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try

– unknown

In amongst the daily grind we must not forget about our own personal accomplishments. So as I speedily arrive to the end of this month, what have I been up to?

Beta Readers feedback

This month I received 4 chunks of feedback from my beta readers, 2 more pending which I expect in early March. Then I can start updating my current draft and engage with a copy editor for a final assessment.

To Self-Publish or not

Over the past few weeks I toiled with whether I should follow the #self-publish route. I follow that particular hashtag on Instagram and see so many wonderful stories. Closer to home a friend has self-published her first novel, you must check it out – Marriage Unarranged by Ritu Bhathal. [Well done again Ritu].
I made a list of independent self publishing companies in Kent and London, and when ready will float my book to them. I know there will be a mass of rejections coming my way but that won’t stop me from trying!

Keeping up the reading

I have remained persistent with my reading, finished the debut novel by Dawn French. You can read my review here.

Changing of my set of wheels

Last August my current car passed 11 years with me, what a journey we have had together. I used past tense because at the start of the year my mission was to change it. Last month I took some test drives but the price didn’t fit my budget, I was being honest with myself. This month has been much more positive and I am 99% sure my old friend and I will depart with something new taking its place.

How has your month been? Have you been able to tick off something on your list?

  1. It’s been a productive month for you!
    Thank you for the mention as well!
    I appreciate it 🙏🏽💜
    It’s been a whirlwind month for me too, with the book release!!!

  2. Let’s see it was birthday month so congratulations to me for being born even though I think mothers are the ones who are supposed to get the gifts and presents on their children’s birthdays, they do most of the heavy lifting lol
    My blog got nominated for an award and I have my fingers crossed that maybe this time I can have something to show when people ask if anyone reads my blog and I can assure them they are the only ones not reading the rest of the world is enraptured ha!

  3. Every month I survive outside a locked hospital ward, with my kid in my custody, and a roof still over our heads…That is my positive.

    I do have an added positive for February. Just by joining the blogger community and beginning to interact with other bloggers I’ve gained 37 new followers and a bunch of new friends who truly bring something that was missing to my life. I hope I occasionally do the same for them with one of my posts or comments.

    11 years with your car is a big commitment, be sure and mourn the end of that relationship. Yes, I am wacky enough to think even mechanical objects that have served us well deserve a moment of consderation when parting ways.

    1. Nikki you’re doing an incredible job and I am sure all that ground work will result in you and your kid having a beautiful future.
      Yes parting will be difficult eventually, I’ve got some great memories in that car.

  4. Wow! That’s a good list.
    Okay I survived 29 days of February.
    I had planned to start working on my assignment. I did 50% of it. ON MY OWN.
    I am in the process of making 2 friends at my workplace. After 10 months of staying there.
    I said a long overdue thankyou to a friend for something that he unknowingly did for me. Expression of gratitude has become important in my life over the past few months.
    Not to forget, I put blogger community into action in feb. Receiving such a great response has just made everything better.

    Ok, Looks like I did more than surviving. Cheers to me, you and all of us! 🙂
