Goals For The Month of May – #WriteMotivation

Last week I did not post my goals for the month of May. Instead I tried to show you my enthusiasm for this endeavor and try to illicit a response to a dilemma I had with science. Unfortunately, no one more science-y than me has found an answer and posted it. I still am calling for any and all help! 🙂

Today, I thought I would post my goals, and add to them. I always seem to add to them after I’ve signed up on KT’s form.

  1. Complete the necessary blog posts for #WriteMotivation, maybe throw in a few “others” as well. I also want to try to post more comments on fellow #writemotivation blogs. I sometimes forget to do that.
  2. I still struggle with giving myself a word count goal, so let’s just leave it at “make forward momentum!” Progress is always good! I am always trying to remember my Rule for the First Draft is A single word is progress. Zero words is stagnation. And deleting words is regression. We always want progression and one word is AWESOME! 🙂
  3. Provide unending support, cheering, and cookie flinging, to anyone who needs it.
  4. Complete B’s critique on her novel well before the end of the month. I will do my best. But lately, I haven’t had a chance to read at all. I’ve been so wrapped up in writing my novel that reading has fallen by the wayside. I hope she can be patient with me. 🙂

So, this is the plan for this month. I’ve keep up with #1, #2, and #3 so far. I am making a little progress on #4…slowly. So far so good. It is one week into the month and everyone seems to be doing so well! ZOMBIE COOKIES FOR ALL!!!



  1. Ping from Stephanie Berget:

    People care, life will get better. Hang on. When something hard occurs, and you want to give up, don’t. It usually turns out to move you in a new direction, a better one.
    I love the “I need a word” idea. I do that too. 😆

  2. Ping from LadyJai:

    Thank you all for your enthusiastic motivational techniques! <3 you guys! :mrgreen:

  3. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    Zombie cookies? *eyes suspiciously* are you sure you’ve kept track of all your science projects?

    Yay for first draft progression! Mine has made no progression so far . . .

  4. Ping from Michael Haynes:

    Good luck with your forward momentum for May. That’s a worthy goal all by itself.

  5. Ping from Alison Stone:

    Oops…meant to say, “start DOWN that road.” 🙂

  6. Ping from Alison Stone:

    I think “make forward momentum” is a worthy goal. Usually when you start don’t that road, the words just keep coming.

  7. Ping from valerierlawson:

  8. Ping from Leigh Caroline:

    Whoot! You can do it!! Just keep writing, the rest will follow!
