Yes, I’m late!
We had an illness in the family that left one of us in the hospital for 6 days and another one of us caring for the sick daughter’s baby for 6 days.
But this is still a New Year! A Yippee, Let’s Go! year. A We Can Do Anything
Each year I write out a million goals. Last year, though, I held back. I made only 70. (I’ve mentioned I’m not one of those gals who feels badly when she fails to reach a destination. I love the way I feel when I set a goal and imagine accomplishing it.) How’s I do? Not so well. It was a tough 366 days.
This year, well, I’m still writing out the things I want to do–but I can safely say I have more hopes and dreams than a human should have. There are house goals, garden goals, personal goals, etc etc.
I found these from 2009:
- Read 200 books
- Write three novels
- Rewrite lost in Peace for St. Martin’s Press
And then here were Rick Walton’s goals. Hahahaha! I love him. And miss him.
- Read 200 picture books
- Pick up three novels
- Rewrite *A Million Little Pieces* for St. Martin’s Press
- Comment anonymously on Carol’s blog????
It’s been a hard year. A lot of people I love have died. People I’ve loved have lost loved ones.
Here are 3 of my millions of aspirations–just in the writing category!
- Finish rewrite with Ann Dee, rewrite for an editor, and draft of mystery before January’s end, and send in for review to Steve.
- Write a true NaNoWriMo–meaning, accomplish the 50,000 words. Now, if I am rewriting a novel then, I will set the goal as I did this last year and just do the best I can. (I sent in the partial murder mystery and I’m hoping my editor likes it. I’ll let you know if she bites!)
- Write a picture book with my daughter Laura.
We know we have at least 3 readers out there. If you’d like, put your goals here. Share as many as you’d like. Unless you’re crazy like I am. Then that means there’s not enough room.
Ann Dee and Kyra? Submit your goals, too. I’ll save them this time.
