You Said What?

I’ve had a busy weekend. I started at a swim meet watching baby girl fly through the water before rushing to the local library to catch the last hour of a Writer’s Festival and then I finished up with the family at the annual Greek Fest. Busy but fun.

You may not know this, but I have a habit of asking stupid questions when I’m in a large group like a conference. As I sat listening to a panel on publishing today, I purposely sat on my hands so I couldn’t ask questions. I survived… until the book signing. Face palm.  Really, I should not be allowed in public without a keeper. I won’t give the scary replay, I’ll just leave it at the author was kind and polite 🙂

On with the goals.


Round 4 will run until December 22. The group now uses Facebook to check in. Be sure to pop over there and see how the rest of the group is doing. You can find my full post of goals here. I am listing the weekly goals.

Red is a fail.

Blue means I’ve made progress. A strikethrough means it’s completed.

  • Read 4 books a month. Finish Killer Cupcake by Leighann Dobbs. I’m on chapter 2. I finished Killer Cupcakes, it was a light read. I also read Changing Habits by Alice Loweecey. A short story that introduces her main character in the Giulia Driscoll series. I loved it, funny. I started reading Hot Button by Kylie Logan. I can’t imagine a conference for button collectors but I can’t wait to find out who the killer is. I love it. That means I have read 4 books in October!
  • Exercise 3 days a week. Exercise on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I did exercise 2 days a week. I’m getting there.
  • Make a list of all the writing projects I have.
    Work out some sort of schedule, see next goal. I made my list and it’s huge. It didn’t help signing up for NaNoWriMo.
  • Make a daily schedule using weekly goals. I like to say my mental schedule is enough…
  • Limit my coke intake to 1 a week. Nope I had like 3, I think.
  • Prepare my submission for critique group.
  • Keep up with critique group. It’s tomorrow and I still have 2 to read. HELP!
  • Participate in 3 meme’s.

Goals for this week


  • Exercise on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
  • Participate in 3 meme’s.
  • Make a daily schedule using weekly goals.
  • Limit my coke intake to 1 a week.
  • Edit Stella. This is my big goal for the week. I want Stella finished.

That’s it. That’s enough.

How did your week go?

  1. I have the same issue with mentally planning vs sitting down and writing stuff down. I bought a nice planner to use this year, and while I wrote stuff in it, I didn’t look at it afterward. I am thinking I need a different method. 😉

    I’ve always said that there is no such thing as a stupid question, only a stupid answer. I used to tell my photography students that all the time.

    Killer Cupcake sounds interesting. What genre is it?


  2. I never ask a question in a large group, and rarely even in a small group. I might have such a burning question that I can’t focus until I have the answer, but I keep it to myself, hoping that someone else asks about what I want to know. So it goes both ways – dumb question or no question? It’s a toss-up.
