Monday is a Goals Day

That's right, more goals. If you've been reading this a while, you've probably figured out I like making goals. I don't always like the work that goes into keeping them, but I like making them. And I like making mini goals, too. And I like crossing things off lists. (Makes me feel powerful. ;D)

Maybe it's because I studied French in high school, or maybe it's because I think of all things in terms of a work week, or maybe it's because I'm just plain odd, but I like to start my goals on a Monday.

So, that's what I'm doing today. I'm setting goals. (Actually, these goals will all come into effect on Tuesday, because last week was a bad week to get a cold, and everything hit today, so I'm playing catching from all my juggling tonight. It's a long story that, trust me, isn't as interesting to hear as it would be fun to whine about it.)


Goal 1 - Finish typing The Thief Book by the end of October.
Mini Goal for accomplishing Goal 1 - Type 2000 words a day. It'll be hard, but I think I can do it.

Goal 2 - Post five (yes, 5) times a week.
Caveat: Not all of these times will be days of the standard work week, because I like posting on Saturdays, and I don't trust myself to be able to do one a day back to back for five days straight. I remember trying a while back, and it wasn't easy.

Goal 3 - Check on Blogger only twice a day.
Note: I will keep up my same level of commenting on people's blogs; however, the Internet is my time vampire, and I could do all of this -- not to mention all of everything else -- a lot easier and better if I didn't go on blogger every half hour. We'll see how this one goes.

So, those are my three new goals. If anyone wants to place bets in the comments on how long they think any of these are going to last, their guesses will be met with much amusement. And, who knows, you might really amp me up for success.

What are you goals for the week/ what's on your To Do List?


  1. one thing on my to-do list is to visit all the blogs of people who follow me and leave them this heart wrenching comment.

    I wanted to let you know about my blog address change. *sigh* If you're following me, my posts now won't show up in your feed, dashboard, sidebar, whatever. So please forgive me, but you'll have to change the address for my main writing blog, Where Romance Meets Therapy, to To do this, you have to "unfollow" me and follow me again. Sorry for the confusion!

    The Character Therapist

  2. My guess is that you can stick to your goals. They are good ones, and I need to also stay off blogger except for a couple of times a day. I'll try this one with you.

  3. JC -- Noted. Though, I'm a little shaky on unfollowing procedure, as it were.

    LW -- Goals are fun. I try to think of it that when I go on less there is more to enjoy when I get on. Glass half full. :D
