Okay. Scratch two items off my new to do list — I am officially a dot.com (yay!) and I joined a handful of writer’s groups (Meetup.com). I’ll be attending my first one next week. I’m also working on an application to volunteer (VolunteerMatch.org — if you’re interested in finding an opportunity to volunteer as well) to teenage girls in an effort to help them find their writer’s voice. I feel like I’m going from 0 to 60 in no time flat, but I’ve always worked much better when I have more to do. And as the last year has shown, I’ve had way too much time on my hands with little result, so it feels good to start making plans. What I’m hoping to gain from all this is some accountability — some pressure to produce and succeed.
I’ve set a few deadlines for finishing some writing projects in the hopes that with the spring (that time of year when agents get bombarded) I’ll have a handful of pieces ready. In addition, I’m working on some personal goals, looking to update my blog, among the many other items on that Professional To Do List I’ve grown so fond of. *Whew.
So here’s to sticking with it! I hope you all are achieving some of your goals as well. Let’s keep at it!
“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” -Michelangelo
Best of luck!
