There are 273 days until 12/1/2011.
Why is that date important?
Well, it's the deadline to have all enteries into the RWA Office for the Golden Heart!
Last year, I botched it. I didn't finish in time to enter. I let the outside world invade my drive to write THE END. I've been told having a baby is a worth excuse . . . BUT to me, it's still an excuse.
I haven't made great strides in sticking with my goal of writing 500 words a day so far this year. I've had a couple of loops thrown my way like the baby spending over two weeks in the hospital and my grandma passing away.
March, I have decided, will be 1000x times better (because what else could go wrong?! lol) I've got the frame work in place for carving out my writing time. How? I will never be without paper and pencil. I'd forgotten that before computers and mini-PC's there was hand-writing notes and scenes. (We've gotten quite spoiled in this techno-savvy world!)
It's also been suggested I tape record my thoughts and scenes using a voice recorder. I used to do this, but the practice feel by the wayside. lol The only problem I might run into with this choice is the occasional screaming fit from both the kids, baby, and ME!
So, I've confessed the burning burden within me. How about YOU? How have you been sticking with your goals?
