Ready. Set. WRITE! Goals


This special summer writing intensive will be the best thing for me since I did the Writer Rechargeearlier this year.

You can find out more about this great writing deal here.

This week we are goal setting.

I have a few ideas for my goals. Since I don’t have to make it entirely writing related, I will include some new things.

So here goes:
1. Write every day. This only has to be 250 words. A page a day. Totally doable.
2. Exercise more. Hoping for at least 10 mins of cardio and 10 mins of yoga. Hey, it’s a start!
3. Design more book covers! I am loving doing this and it is a great way to express those creative urges when the writing is not coming.
4. Finish the book cover design website.
5. Read every day. I am going to have to update my goals on Goodreads. I think I have already passed what I thought I would read!

I think I can do all this effortlessly as long as I get enough sleep!

Happy Monday!

    I love that you included reading every day as a goal. I have slacked on reading so much this year and I’m trying to catch up this summer. Good luck with everything!

      Laurel, I think it was a challenge thing to read certian number of books this year…? Swear I don’t remember… but thanks for stopping by!

    I think writing 250 words a day is perfect. Totally doable. And I find that often by the time I’ve written 250 words I’m in the zone and keep on going. I have a similar goal for myself this week. Good luck, Kim! 😀

    Ooh, your goals sound like so much fun! I love that you have writing, design and reading goals. Sounds like you’ll have a fun (and busy) summer.

    Good luck with all of your goals. This all sounds totally doable! That’s so cool that you also design book covers.
