I Have A Goal!

April, what can I say about it? For a mother with three young children who all play soccer, who is in her last month of a semester and has 12 page papers, and finals, and group presentations due, who wants to keep her house clean, and spend some time with her family in a setting that doesn't include driving to and from soccer only, well April is a crazy month. Now add to that that I want to write. That I need to finish this book so I can go on to the next idea I have and you can see why I needed to make a goal. I originally wanted to do 30,000 words this month, but then I came back to reality and set my sights a little lower. So for April I am making a goal of adding 10,000 words to my 33,199 that I have as of this moment. I will be keeping track on the side of the blog so feel free to yell at me if you see any zero's on days other than Sunday. That is my goal and I hope I can make it and still survive! What is your goal for the month?

My goal - keep working out. The end of this month marks a solid month for me and I need to keep it up. I think that's all I can handle at this point!

As a special ed teacher we have meeeeeetings at the beginning of April to transition kids to the next teacher in the Fall. I am completely exhausted. And I am in school too, licensing. Bishop hubby, missionary leaving next Wednesday. Blah, blah, blah. How do we keep it together?

I never got to read any of your writing, since I had to bow out of the writing group Julianna and you guys were trying to get going. Still plowing forward?

Best of luck to you! I need to set a goal myself. I've got to finish book 2 in The Wolfchild Saga and SOON! Why is it so hard to park our buns in the chair and just do it??? lol

Great Goal everyone! I am doing okay, but it is the weekend, once the week comes and school is going that may change, but at least this week there is no soccer so that should help! Good Luck to you all!
