A year in review

Looking back at the goals I set for myself, I am sort of pleased with the end results. Here they are for the world to see.

Writing Goals:

To complete three manuscripts. Results: I'm on my fourth. ☺

Submit work. Results: I've submitted queries of my first MS, and one of my third. ☺

Continue Learning how to write. Results: I learn something new every day, and I'm still learning. ☺

Go to a writers Conference.  Results: I haven't done this. No, wait, I participated in WriteOnCon!!! Technically, I didn't  "go" anywhere, but it was a conference. ☺

Schedule time to write. Results: I write whenever I can, regardless if it's on my agenda.  ☺

Blogging/Social Networking. Results: My blog turned one in September. I've maintained contact with various online groups.  ☺

Find a writer's group. I participated in a few this year and found an AWESOME group. I've also reached out to beta readers who have been AWESOME too. ☺

Spiritual Development Goal

Read motivational books. Results: I've read two this year. ☺

Meditate. Results: Haven't kept a regular schedule.  :-(

Health Goal

Lose weight, eat well, exercise, and follow a weekly menu.  Results: I grouped it together 'cause I haven't been following it.  :-(

This goes to show you I'm skewed. I have to balance myself more in my personal development, than professional development.  What about you, where do you find yourself skewed?


  1. Looks like you did pretty good reaching most of your goals. I'd pat myself on the back if I were you. As for me, I'd say my house has suffered the most. I used to be a better housekeeper. Now I'm a better writer.

  2. Ah...I left that one out completely. I think being a better writer is much more fun! The house...well, it will always be there. LOL.

  3. Goals are wonderful ways to map our future and become our very own cheerleader. I can't wait to see what next year brings you.

  4. I love that you set goals at the beginning of the year and held yourself accountable. I think it's wonderful you've reached so many of them. The writing goals alone are staggering -- I mean, on your fourth manuscript. WOW! Keep up the terrific work. I'm proud of you. Be proud of yourself.

  5. LM...Thanks! One step at a time will get me where I need to go.

    Thanks Buffy. It does help me stay on task posting my intent for all to see. It does hold me accountable. I still have to celebrate. ☺


Thanks for stopping by! I had to turn on the word verification due to spammers. Sorry for the inconvenience.
