March #WriteMotivation Goals – Update #2

Alone has been Published in The Veterans' Voice

Alone has been Published in The Veterans’ Voice

A month ago I was contacted by the publisher of The Veterans’ Voice asking for permission to publish my blog post regarding how I thought I was alone in caring for my husband — a disabled vet suffering chronic pain, daily migraines, PTSD, and more. I received the paper this past weekend and it is a real thrill to see my name in tangible print! I’m so happy. And if I can help just one person realize that they aren’t alone, I would be ecstatic! No one should ever have to feel that way.  Also, they’ve posted it up on their website! And as of today, 1000 people “LIKE” it! Whooo hoooo!!

March’s Goals:

  1. Read through my WIP. This is the first step to get back into the head of my MC and the world he lives in. I hope. I started re-reading what I’ve written. So I’m working towards this goal. I may need a kick in the pants, though. 🙂
  2. Write words on WIP. See #1 Can’t do this unless #1 is complete.
  3. Keep up with blog posts for both blogs – this one and my Caring for My Vet. I’ve scheduled some A to Z posts already. I’m working on a post for Caring for my Vet about Fear. And this is this week’s post for this one. 🙂 I think I’m doing ok so far, though my other blog is a little behind since I didn’t post anything last week.
  4. Comment/cheer on my fellow #WriteMotivation peeps on Twitter, FB, Google+ and their blogs. Whatever they need, I will try and provide! :D I’m a little behind on this one, too. I’m ok on Twitter, but getting to everyone’s blogs and commenting hasn’t happened yet. This weekend was quite busy buying all the lawn stuff. We need to put down the fertilizer and weed killer now before it starts staying warm. Spring seems to be here now.
  5. Write motivational post for #WriteMotivation – still thinking on what to write…any suggestions? I did get one up about how to get back in the habit. Have you read it yet? If not, go…and be motivated. 🙂
  6. Continue with my positive thinking – Doing very well, I think.
  7. Read another book. Completed Divergent
