With the move, a lot of things have been back-burnered, and although I’m not yet ready to jump right back into the swing of things (there will be some intensive cleaning, settling in, and maintenance-doing around the Brockmeyer casa this week), I am ready to poke my head up and take a look around to see where I’m going next.
Mid-month isn’t too late for a goal post, right? Here’s an April re-cap:
April ROW80 Round 2 Goals
Use a timer! Did it! (Not quite a habit yet, but works when I use it.)
Work on Charming Cora Yeah, nope. My only big ‘ol fail.
Short blog daily Did it! I’m a survivor. And sorry for getting that song stuck in your head. 15 minutes of German daily Did it! (Probably 70% success on this.) Plan out mini-sesson for MMRWA Retreat Did it! And didn’t die of embarrassment while I presented! MMRWA Retreat Apr. 24, 25, 26 Done! Can’t wait ’till next year. M, W, F Mid-Michigan Romance Writing 101 FB posts Did it!

Buy a house? Did it! We now have our own little MCM gem and it’s so, so cool. ROW80 sign up/goal post on Apr. 8 Did it! Retreat basket Did it!
Looking back, that’s really not too bad. Except that, with everything else going on, writing seriously fell by the wayside. That can’t happen the rest of this month. My biggest goal will be to make writing a daily habit again.

Writing jumpstarts? Flash fiction or short story?
I guess that’s about enough to get me started. Let’s hope that writing down goals really is the first step in accomplishing them. How about you? Do you have lots of ambitious goals going this month? Or what’s left of it, anyway?
