Tony Romo, quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, said in this afternoon's interview: "You win the game, you go out and start over. You lose the game, you start over." You make a commitment, and you go to work.
Nice lead-in for this week's ROW80 check-in. Last week, the highlights were discovering my book, Standing Stones, is now on Overdrive for the Spokane County Public Library! Also helped set up the quilt show and worked a few hours over the weekend for this 3-day extravaganza. Nearly finished with baby quilt #1 with another to wrap up (forgive the pun).
Here are my goals for Oct 20-27:
--Write 5 out of 7 days, minimum of 250 words/day.
--Write a poem a day for OctPoWriMo and post on writing blog x2 (guest post from science fiction writer Ruth Nestvold scheduled for October 24).
--Read 40 pages of research related to Rivers of Stone.
--Review other indie writers x2.
--Participate in online and F2F writers' groups, including WIPpet Wednesday, UBC, Novels_L and ROW80 (keep up with sponsor readings).
--Read inspirational posts and set 2 marketing goals for this week.
--Prep for book club next week.
And in other realms: Keep up with real life (laundry, house cleaning, cooking, exercising, decluttering, and a little sewing).
May your life be full of all good things in harmony, and the coming week a good one.
This is my favorite picture this week of fall leaves I took at our local arboretum; it seems to invite reflection.
