MILESTONE WEEK!!

This week we are all declaring our Milestones - the things we are hoping to achieve in the next few months. This idea was born in one of this discussions we were having about how fall makes us feel like it's time to get back to work on all things; Health, writing, exercise, organization. All of it.

So this is what we're going to do. Each of us will have some goals that we're going to declare to the world this week. Every month from now until the end of December we're going to check in on the last week of the month and update how we are doing with those goals. We would love you guys to commiserate, to join us, to shame us should we fail, congratulate us when we succeed. Just, in general, join the conversations.



These are my goals for fall:

1. 10-12 thousand words a week. Back in the day, this was nothing. I am woefully out of writing shape, but deadlines are looming and side projects are beckoning, so it's time to get serious.

2. Re-commit to Weight Watchers. I joined WW a few months ago and almost immediately lost ten pounds. Then I gained it back. Then I felt so bad, I stopped logging into my profile to write down what I ate or how I exercised and then I gained some more weight. So, it's time to stop that. Back to Weight Watchers.

3. Better sleep. I need to be lights out at 11 at the latest. Staying up till midnight ruins my next day.


Stay tuned for more Milestones through the week and NEXT WEEK WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS FOR THE HOP!

You go, Molly! I might piggyback on to some of your Milestones.

I'm in! I had a great summer, got in shape and got a lot of work done. But for me fall is all about word count.

I've set a goal of 20,000 words in September, 30,000 words in October, and at least 40,000 words in November. I have a conference this week so I get a bit of a break this month :)

Go Molly! Best of luck with your milestones.

I'm with you on the 10-12 K a week. I think this should be doable. What a great goal. I like it.

You go, Molly! Those are great goals. 10K a week sounds so doable in theory. I need to get back to that too...

Ripley Vaughan said...

Great goals... mine are going to be similar as well.

Right! I'll jump on in here. My goal is to finish editing and get out four submissions/queries by December, continue writing my blogs, and work out four times a week. I have a contest entry to finish by the end of September as well. Not nearly as ambitious as the rest of you, but enough for me to be getting on with.

First freaking night of Milestone week - I stay up until 2 am reading!!! So far not so good!!!

Kym - you're plenty ambitious - I think this whole week is about doable goals which make me think Simone St. James is SUPER WOMAN! 40,000 words in november - WOW!!
