This year for the A-Z Challenge, I'm attempting to act like I know what I'm talking about and offering advice about writing. Let's see how I do!
Also, don't forget to stop by the Parallels blog to see more posts about the upcoming anthology, which will be available on May 3rd!
Yearly goals frequently fall by the wayside as time goes on. Things happen. Life can go in an entirely different direction than you expected. That’s why I find it helpful to make goals on a regular basis. At least then I have a hope of getting something done. I don't want the image below to apply to me if I can help it.
Sure, I have my yearly goals, but I also break it down into monthly and weekly goals. I started doing this recently, and it’s been successful so far. By making weekly goals, I give myself something specific to accomplish in a relatively short amount of time, and I also have to take account of what I accomplished the week before and what I didn’t. That’s helped me hold myself accountable.
If you decide to set goals, do it in a way that works for you. However often you set goals and reassess, make sure you do it in a way that helps your productivity.
Jude had a great 7th birthday. He brought cupcakes to school to share with his classmates, which made him happy. My dad also bought him a birthday cake and a K'Nex set, and what kid wouldn't love that? Though truthfully, I think my husband is enjoying the K'Nex set as much as the kids are.
Jude also had a spring concert on Thursday. He loves singing on stage. He loves performing in general, and he'd probably live on the stage if I let him.
Writing is going a bit more slowly this month due to everything else going on, but I'm still writing nonetheless! That's worth celebrating.
I co-hosted IWSG this month, which is always a cool experience. It's a good way to meet people and get some additional traffic to your blog. That's a win-win situation if you ask me.
I'm also celebrating the fact that the IWSG anthology Parallels: Felix Was Here is coming out less than a month from now. May 3rd is fast approaching. Who else is excited about that? I know I am.
What would you like to celebrate?
