The Merry Month of May--Make It Matter!

Hard to believe that the year is a quarter gone already. That's what happens when you are busy. And I have been busy--how about you?

At the beginning of the year, I set a goal. At the time, it seemed like a lark. By March, it seemed like a chore. Now, it feels natural. That's the way a daily habit gets to be. Even though I have already promised myself I won't keep it up next year, I don't know if I will be able to stop...I know, at the very least, I will continue to produce more work faster as a result of this year's challenge.

The goal this year was to submit at least one piece every day this year. Counting today, that was 124 days ago. I've made 137 submissions. I tell you this to show that making a goal can push you to heights you never expected!

Set a goal. Any goal. It's not too late for a Resolution! Write 3 pages a day. Submit 2 pieces a week. Write a novella this year. Make it as small as you want, or as daunting--share it or don't--it's all up to you.

If you like, come and post your goal in the comments. We will encourage you!

And for a bit of inspiration, check out the deals at the Mocha Memoirs Spring Fling Sale. It runs through the 10th.

  1. Now, that's ambitious. 'Don't know if I could turn out that many. I seem to spend more time trying to sell what I have than to create more. It's something to think about.
