Getting to Goals

Happy New Year!

Last year I set some goals for myself. Not quite New Year’s resolutions, but things to work on if you will. So…

Happy New Year! 

Now that 2015 has rolled around, it is time to get working on those projects. Darned if I haven’t even got a start on them. Look at me go! At present a course calendar is open on my desk with writing courses to sign up for. I haven’t actually handed my cash over yet, but I am this close. Should I go for ‘Grammar’, ‘Creativity for Writers’ or ‘Editing’? Hmm…

The start of a contest deadline calendar – Pink squares are contest deadlines

Another goal was to create a writing calendar to motivate me. The calendar – writing contest deadlines. I am proud to say that this calendar now has several entries in it. They include fiction, nonfiction and poetry contests. The above month is for February and as you can see, already has 6 entries. Time to get cracking!

Not only have I done that, but I also have an idea for a story for one of those contests.

Any Mom’s out there with a story to share? Check out Tipsy Squirrel Press and their Martinis and Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe, and WTF?!. They are looking for short stories for an anthology they are putting together. If you have a tale of wonder, woe or WTF?! that is in need of a martini to go with it, it just might be worth your while to write it down. Mine just might involve duct tape…

How have you fared with your New Year’s goals/resolutions so far this year?
