With the milder winter most of us have been having, I hope you’ve had an easier time of brushing off the holiday letdown we talked about in my 10 Tricks to Ward Off the Holiday Blues at Gary Gauthier’s blog a few weeks ago. The view of grass rather than dirty snow and ice is uplifting for me.
So, my head is really into completing all my goals…my ROW80, #HotWriterBods and The Life List Club goals.
I wish you the same concentrated focus on your goals this year!
Updates are in pink:
- Continue with my 13-month Health Challenge. Read about that Here. Gene Lempp and I have renewed our 60-day Treadmill challenge. Gene’s new goals will be post on his site soon. I won’t give a way what they are but I will tell you he’s ramping it up! Last week, I posted new goals for the 60 days from February 1st to march 31st in #Hotwriterbods Health Challenge, so please go see how I’ve made this challenge…uh, more challenging!
- Write on my projects – 4-5 days per week for a weekly total of 2,500 words. Again, I have not written that many days on my short stories an I haven’t made my goal. I’ve written 25% of it and no excuses as to why I wrote so little. Next week WILL be better.
- Streamline my social media and support efforts so that I visit all my blogger friends and ROW80 friends over the course of each week. Tweeting, also, for my friends to help promote their work. SCORE! I think I’ve finally got it managed!
I’m disappointed in my lack of desire to write this week, but will force myself to get back to it starting tonight! The rest of my goals are on track and I’m excited about that.
If you haven’t tried a writing challenge before, ROW80 is not intimidating or full of pressure. It’s the challenge that knows you have a life. Set reasonable goals and work at meeting them each week. So many ROW80 veterans will tell you that they’ve learned a lot about themselves and the best methods they’ve found to get the job done.
Please check out ROW80 for yourself! Creator, Kait Nolan, offers a flexible, supportive atmosphere for meeting your writing goals. There are sooo many awesome people involved and they make it so much fun! Meet the Sponsors, too. They are the best cheerleaders you could ever hope to have.
Thanks for all your support! I hope your week went well. Please share with us in the comments. What are your struggles?
