So last week my computer crashed.
That means we didn’t have two or three days of blog.
If I post today, it means I was able to make my laptop do its job.
So, I have been thinking about several things.
Yes, it was my birthday.
And I received two very nice cards. One card that brought tears to my eyes.
And that card made me think even harder.
About all kinds of things.
Like my family and my writing and my attitude.
Yes! I know it! No one has to tell me I have a bad attitude.
Plus the other crummy things about me (that I try to keep hidden but unfortunately my poor girls have to deal with).
So, the deal is I have just under a year before I have another birthday and I want to work like crazy to see if I can be a better person. Better on the inside and on the outside. Better in my health, and better in my thoughts. Better at the way I look at things.
I once went to a therapist. (Okay, I went more than once.) And I told her I have really bad luck. And she said, no, my bad luck was all in my head. Then she saw me on the news after a freak accident and said to me, I guess you do have bad luck.
But I have wondered if I bring that bad luck on me because of my stinky attitude.
So I want to work on that, too. I invite anyone to join me.
Because part of my change is looking at myself more professionally. If I do, maybe I’ll start making money as a writer. You know, enough to live on so I can quit worrying.
Here are my writing goals for October:
1. Write daily. Write 1000-2500 words per day.
2. Finish a rough draft of my funny ghost novel.
3. Try to write an outline for two other novels. Not a deep outline like J. Scott Savage does (http://jscottsavage.blogspot.com). Just something loose that gives me ideas and direction.
4. Get all the conference stuff done in October so we can go live with the website on January 1, 2014.
Please share your goals or thoughts or dreams or whatever.
We still have to think and plan for November and NaNoWriMo.
And after that, we have February when we will write our romance novels.
Then we’ll all be rolling with the homies.
PS I tried to send this and did it wrong so this post may be floating out there in WordPress land. 🙂
