Writing torches in the air for this post:
- A Round of Words in 80 Days (ROW80)
- The Insecure Writer’s Support Group (IWSG)
- Prep for A to Z 2015 Blogging Challenge
- One Year Reading Challenge 2015
Okay, so I may be over committing myself, but I really like joining challenges. Some people can do these things on their own, but I am not that competent or organized. I need the people to help me stay motivated and to bounce things off. I love that you all are so bouncy and supportive.
Things have been keeping me from writing or maybe I have not been trying hard enough. It isn't the big things. Everyone recognizes major challenges when they arrive and pushes the pause button on non-essential goals. It's the little things that pilfer my time without me even realizing it's gone. The Facebook is chief among those time sucking miscreants, but you can't overlook more mundane things like housework and homeschooling. Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread.
What do you do when you feel like a eleventy-one year old hobbit?
1. Write 500 words per day on any project.
Tuesday: Sleep and snuggling sick kids, but no words.
2. Blog at least every Wednesday and Sunday.
I am thinking these are a win.
3. Check out at least 10 posts from each new ROW80 linky before the next one comes out.
I got to 8 and midnight hit and I decided to work on my post.
4. Use Twitter at least once per day.
I was not able to get to Twitter Tuesday.
5. Post on my author Facebook page at least 3 times per week.
I am going to have to think about changing this goal. I have only been able to get it done once since I jumped in. Let us see how it goes for the rest of the week and then I will decide.
6. Read 1 book per week.
With Sherlock out of the way I move onto The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. It will be fulfilling my "book over 100 years old" category. I am only a few chapters in, but am liking it. I guess I should have read these classics long ago. I will let you know how it goes.
Thanks for all who stopped by from the different groups. Leave me a comment and say hello so I can follow you back and see what you are up to.
