Life ROWed a Wobbly at me…
…and it’s all looking Super!
Hasn’t this week flown past? I cannot believe that we are in week two and my goals are starting waiver just a wee bit -why you ask? Well, I gave the life around me more of my focus and this naturally impacted on my goals; but I will not quibble because I know I’ve still met a good part of my goals and slowly but surely I will get it all in perspective and will be flying through! Shall we do a quick-fire ticking off? *nods* I do too.
ROW80 2012… My Goals as they stand:
- Sponsoring: Still keep a lookie-outie for when I grace your lovely blogs. - ON TARGET WITH THE SPONSORING (HAVE VISITED ALL THAT ARE IN MY ALLOCATED TEAM).
- Blog: Since Sunday’s update this is my first blog to post (so not over-stretching myself just yet), I have also scheduled in two blog posts so that’s two less posts to think about (I’m well chuffed with that). – SO A HUGE TICK!
- WIP: By the end of ROW80 2012 (round one) I want to be in a position where I am in the process of publishing an eBook (a compilation of short stories). To start this off, over the next few weeks I will select 8-11 stories which I hope to edit until it’s nearly perfect. – THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED YET, I ENVISION I WILL TACKLE THIS NEXT WEEK AS I HAVE A BUSY REST OF THE WEEK (UNLESS I CAN SIT DOWN ON SATURDAY AND DECIDE ON THE STORIES).
- Fun Game – It’s in Your Head. – POST TO BE WRITTEN AND SCHEDULED FOR THIS FRIDAY.
- Guest blog posts and Author Interviews I was arranging before I vanished; there’s a few people I need to get back to therefore, I will be contacting them and scheduling their articles in the relevant Friday/Sunday slot. – DONE DONE DONE! EMAILS SENT -WOO HOO!
- Catch-up on my emails (there’s a few). – DONE!
- My Critique buddies and I need to have a catch-up (email me if I don’t get round to emailing you first). – EMAIL SENT, AWAITING RESPONSE.
- I never managed to finish that beta reading I signed up for; therefore I plan to complete that by the end of January. – CONTACTED THE AUTHOR. TURNS OUT THE BOOK IS BEING EDITED, SO I CAN READ IT FOR FUN AND AWAIT THE NEW EDITED VERSION TO PROVIDE CRITIQUE FOR.*
- ROW80 Related Aims:
- Create a ROW80 page under the Social Interactions menu. – AS YOU CAN SEE IT’S DONE!
- Provide weekly/fortnightly updates (depending how stretched I am). – DONE! DONE! DONE!
- Visit my allocated team and do what we ROW80′ers are best at doing: Cheer, Cheer, Cheer! - ON TARGET!
- Write an Inspirational post by the end of this week. – WRITTEN & SENT!
I will not add or amend the goals this week, I’ll keep it as it is above and next week I will revise these when I know what is what. This week’s desire was to find some work; therefore, I updated my CV and signed up with a couple of agencies (got a meeting today, wish me luck ). The time I had allocated for the short story collection was taken up by updating ‘the’ CV (how tedious it can be!). This is the reason why not all the goals are met; but I am not despairing as something I was putting off for a while now all of a sudden became extremely desirable which makes me truly heady and ecstatic. Life may throw (pleasant or unpleasant) wobbly’s at us, our schedules may change; we just need to see the positive side to why that is so and just smile like a warm sunshine! Well, this is yikici signing out for now… Next post will be on Friday for some frivolous fun with a special Fun Game – In your Head I devised a while back; if you want to know what it’s all about or see if my theory is correct, please pop back then. Have a marvellous time until then and don’t forget to cheer cheer cheer!
