My goal the rest of the week: visit and comment on at least 15 ROW 80 blogs plus 10 other influential blogs.
This week was crazy, but aren't they all? Monday we found out Depression Cookies was a finalist in two categories of the 2011 Readers Favorite Book Awards, and I survived my first ever live radio interview. Yeah!
I added 658 words total since my last check in, but I worked for hours on my manuscript. I wrote a pivotal scene and spruced up several more. New total: 11,721. Extra credit this week: I wrote 1,022 words for my highlighted author interview which will appear on Monday, August 15. More details soon.
My goal the rest of the week: spend an hour a day minimum working on the sequel, whether it's outlining, character charts, editing, etc versus focusing so much on my word count tally.
I edited 10 pages total these last few days, but my goal this week is to do 5 pages a day. Finally, I will finish two books by Sunday. Wish me luck!
“Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that you give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.” Anthony Robbins
If you make goals, do you feel compelled to meet them or do they only serve to clarify what you really need?
