Goal: 6/24

Today I will write at least 2,000 words.
Today I will stop worrying about how long my book may or may not be.
Today I will stop wondering if that's the right metaphor, or if I should use this one instead...
Today I will remember how much I love my story, and how much I love writing it.




Today I will look at this picture to remind myself that I've done it before, and I can do it again:



also today I will eat more brownies.

Awesome post. I think I'll print it out and tape it to my computer screen. Or my forehead. Whichever I think I'll be seeing more of lately. :) And I'll have more brownies, too.

Seriously, great goals. I'm sitting here thinking I should be pounding out more words myself.

Thank you for this post today. And you had to mention brownies.

Summer said...

Well, I'm just trying to be honest with myself. I AM going to eat more brownies, because they're delicious and I don't want them to go stale. :-)

As long as you're being honest and positive, things will go your way! Yay!

Go Bulls!!

I laughed as I read this...because yesterday I was chanting something similar...and then I left the house for a while. When I returned my daughter had baked brownies. They made everything so much easier!

Patti said...

I'll join you for that last goal. Positive thinking goes a long way. I need to try it.

I can deal with the brownies part...but that's it.

Love your goals for today. You sound just like me. (Except the brownie part. For me it would be more like "Today I'm drinking coffee." Not that I need to tell myself that, or anything. Drinking coffee is as natural to me as breathing!)

It definitely helps to focus on the positive things when writing. Hope your day is full of accomplishments.

Good luck today!

BROWNIES!!!!! *calulating how long it would take to drive to Georgia*

Guinevere said...

Those are great goals! Good luck!

Old Kitty said...

More Brownies means more happiness! :-)

Good luck with your writing - just writing is brilliant - writing without any worries is even better!!

Good luck and enjoy the narrative that you are creating - that in itself is a wonderful achievement!

Take care

Lola Sharp said...

I know I'm not supposed to be online...but I had to sneak in real quick and say hello, check in on a few of my beloved BFFs.
I love this post! I hope you stuck to it and accomplished your goals, or at least got close. :)

Love,
Lola
