    Personal goals

    This post may be on the duller side of things since I am currently working on in my day-to-day life.  As you may know, I am a first time stay at home mother with a four month old.  Things are known to change at the last moment.  Let’s keep it short and sweet. One major area of my life I need to work on is my schooling.  I have a diploma in nursing but I have decided not to be come a nurse.  I love to help people and I love the science part as well.  I sadly have cold shoulder when it comes to working with others and it…

    Goals for my writing

    For the next set of blogs about my goals are going to be a little less blabbing and more meat. So, enjoy!This is going to be really vague since I’m still trying to figure this one out for the long run.  My over all goal is to at least write for an hour three times a week.  On top of that, I am going to be blogging at least three times a week as well.  So that brings me up to five times a week.  At the moment I do not have any project planned or in mind. I have several started and a few in my head.  For someone else, this might…

    Currently a work in progress!

    Self improvement never happens over night.   So many people want the quick and easy solution for EVERYTHING!  That’s why weight loss, smoking cession, writing the next great American novel and so many other things never seem to happen.  It’s quite a sad state of affairs. When I make a goal, I know that it will not happen overnight.  It won’t even happen within the week or month.  It will take time, weeks, months, and even years to happen.  It has taken a long time for me to realize this fact.  I hope that everyone out there who is reading this, realizes this too! So, I am just going to…

    My New Year Resolutions!

    2013 has been one hell of a year and my only hope for myself and for my family and friends, is it will be one of the best years to come! I’m hoping for bigger and better things but to do that, I have to get my butt in gear (and in the chair). So here is my goal statement for this year. Let’s see if I can do it! One of the biggest things I want to achieve is getting into the habit of writing everyday a minimal of 2000 words. These do not have to be for a current project but it has to be words that are…

    Goals Goals Goals

    This will be one of a few posts I put up today. So you have been warned. Its the last day of 2013. So there will be a lot announcements about people wanting to better themselves and that this year will be the year for people to improve themselves or do what they always wanted or make other self-oriented goals. I will admit, I will be on that bandwagon but not for the same reasons as other people. I am a strong believer in writing things down. It creates a connection and – indirectly – puts it in stone. And when I say it, I mean anything you write down.…

    FINALLY! An idea!

    Okay, so yesterday I posted about trying to find an idea for a novel that I could write about for NaNoWriMo.  Well, I got an idea and it’s freaking awesome.  It is a little complicated but I just need to work on the plot and stuff like that and I think I can make it work.  I still have some some details to workout. On top of that, I work up so some sort of nasty head cold.  That makes thinking even harder for me…  ‘Cuz thinking tends to be a weak spot for me. Just kidding.  As you haven’t already realized, I’m kinda odd.  Like odd being the mildest…

    Got time?

                   So a lot of things have changed since my last post that was just a few days ago.  It is just crazy how fast things can flip around.  I am amazed that I didn’t get whiplash.  It is a very strange thing, and for people who know me, I am very strange.  I feel like I am on the edge of a mental breakdown but I can’t be weak and give up.  I need to push through this.  This is not me; I don’t like giving up.  I pushed through nursing school and mastered it; I can do the same thing here.  I am trying to do a balancing act…

    Goal Statement

    Someone once told me that if you write your goal down, it becomes more ‘real’.  I have tried this one before but failed horribly at it.  I was in the middle of nursing school and was trying to hold down a full time job, a new husband, and a new house.  So here I am trying this, and this time, I will get this achieved!  I will get this done, so here is my goal statement.  I will share more about me later! My goal is to become a published author.  The first step of this process is to complete the first draft of my current “Untitled Project” by October…
