Midweek Check-in And A Bad Poem

This week is going better than last. I am starting to feel better after my surgery and am getting back into the swing of things.

LakeWritersPosting Monday, Wednesday and Friday: Ok, so it is time for me to admit it. I have a blog hop obsession. I just joined a new blog hop called Monday Musings that should help inspire me to post every Monday. At least that is what I am hoping. This week I was inspired to write a bad poem.

Posting flash fiction for Friday Flash: As far as Friday goes I have not posted in a while. I have two stories that are in the middle of being created, but both are on hold for now. Luckily I have some time tomorrow so should be able to get that done for this Friday.

Writing 500 words every day:  I have not written every day. No one was in my way this week. I am the only reason I did not reach this goal. **Hangs head in shame** This goal seems to be so elusive, but I don't want to drop it I want to keep trying at it. Can you turn your "Don't mess with me" stare inward?

  1. You've got good reachable goals, you can do it lady! we just need to kick our fingers over to the keyboard and make them go LOL :)

    1. Thanks for the encouragement and keeping me inspired.

  2. I am curious: do you count your poem and you flash fiction toward your 500 words a day? Also, did you write 500 words on some of the days? Or at least some words on some of the days?

    I am badgering you because I see you doing something that I'm trying to stop doing to myself: focusing on what I didn't do and failing to see what I *did* do.

    I don't think it's possible for most of us to hit all our goals all the time. But if having the goal inspires us to write more than we would without the goal, then it's still worthwhile, no?

    "Food for thought." ;*)

    1. Yes, I counted my poem and the flash fiction. The goal was actually to write 500 words on any project. That way I can get myself back into writing everyday. Thanks for the positive way to look at it. I do get too caught up in the negative sometimes.
