Juggling January

by Kay~Kacey on 1/2/2007

You know… there’s always too much to do, and writing gets pushed to the side. Family, pesky day job, house, cooking, kids’ sports.

But this month we’re concentrating on juggling all that stuff to get to the GOOD STUFF :typing: , ie, writing time. Lots more writing time. What can you just ignore? What can you coerce someone into doing for you or demand ask nicely :mrgreen: that someone else does it?

Our critique group does an awesome job with goals every January. Really. We’re the best…but somewhere along the year things die down. We forget to recheck our goals. See if we’re on track. We decide the family room HAS to be vaccumed and the sheets need to be washed TODAY. We’re stressed about this or that. And the page count goes down…

Or…even more brilliant…we say we’re THINKING and PLANNING. Instead of, you know, WRITING.

But this year we resolve :crazy2: to keep on track and make each other accountable for their goals. Time will tell on how well we do with this.

But in the mean time…Juggling January. No excuses. Move stuff around in our lives and find more time to write!

Yes, a perfect title for January! I don’t even want to think about getting ready for taxes too with all the added life stuff and writing. ugh!

What a good girl you are. I have no writing goals yet although I am trying to write every day.
