  1. You are an inspiration. Maybe my goal will be putting all my goals to paper! Baby steps get there, don’t they?

      I would never state resolutions etc in public when I was younger – then it didn’t matter if I failed! – then when I decided 25 years ago I had to break my addiction to smoking I decided it had to be public for me to ever suceed, since then I have found speaking out the wish is a good way of motivating oneself – on writing I didn’t really have a place to do this until ROW80 – writing can be very isolating,the company up here is great.

      baby steps def. get you there:)

    Nice work!! impressive, you are giving me things to strive for…inspiration

  5. Wow, you certainly like to keep yourself busy. That is a great looking list of goals and a great list of achievements. Congratulations.

    I am in the same boast with my novel. I had it beta read and came away with ideas to expand it more and make it richer in terms of the complexities of a group dynamic.

    I look forward to seeing you next round.

      I found it quite exciting when I had the thought and then found the thought expanding – I am very hopeful it will be a good book at the end:) all the best with your expanding book – like complexities of a group dynamic:)

  6. Congrats on ticking so many off your list! I am inspired to have a monthly to-do list like yours displayed somewhere on my website. As Jamie B said – it’s rather handy.
    Can’t wait to read what you’ll accomplish next month! :)

  7. Awesome job! I cleared most of mine, but some I had to scrap altogether – see you next round!

  8. Congrats on meeting yours goals :) I put a list like that up on my website as well- doesn’t it make it easier to get things down when it’s all laid out in front of you?
