One Goal Friday: September 24, 2010

Can you smell it? Apple pie, earthy and crispy leaves, cinnamon candles--those are what I smell this week. Mm-mm. What a wonderful time of the year!

It's Friday! Time to set and review one goal.

My goal last week was to finish choreographing our school's cheerleading dance routine. I did it, and it was fun! There are a few kinks to work out once we have the squad together, but the majority of the routine is finished.

Here are your goals.
Tabitha: Rewrite first two chapters of memoir
CJ: Keep working on Letter projects
Karen L: Continue progress on projects
Wendy: Write synopsis of finished book, plot and synopsis new book, and plot and outline another (!)
Joanne: Return to blogging
Paul: Finish first draft and run marathon (congrats on the marathon!)
Susan M: Continue getting organized
Jen: Send the Guideposts article and work on yard
Amy: Exercise every day
Susan JR: Work on manuscript
Quiet Spirit: Study script for Christmas presentation and edit skit scripts
Sharon: Blog and be a homemaker (so glad your house will be finished!)

How did you do? It's so refreshing for me to review your goals each week. I love what you're accomplishing!

My goal this week is to organize my brainstorming notes for my next novel, and begin typing up the pre-plotting worksheets.

What about you? What one goal will enhance your life this week?

Please leave your goal in the comment section. Newcomers are welcome to participate, and don't worry if you can't stop by every Friday--my blog's goal isn't to add stress but to be a place of support.

Have a splendid weekend!


  1. Cheerleading routine? How fun!
    Goal this week is to write during the blocked time I have scheduled for myself.
    And now I want to buy some apple pie!

  2. Well, I think if I wrote a whole chapter this week I would be one happy pappy. Then I would at least have a partial done of my new wip and have a better understanding of where my story was going.

  3. Lynn: A block of time just for writing is a great idea. I know you'll use it!

    Jennifer: Go, go, go! You can get that partial done!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  4. Cheerleading routine? Will you demonstrate it at our brainstorming retreat this weekend? LOL My goal for next week: use the input from brainstorming to keep moving ahead on my wip.

  5. Patrice: I might. I just might. :) Great goal!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. Congrats on everyone's goals! And good luck to you, Jill, on yours. (I hope you had a wonderful birthday, BTW!)

    My one goal: Rearrange my daughter's room and my writing space. I think that phyiscal action will also declutter my writing brain and create some writing space.

    Have a lovely weekend, my friend! :o)


I love to hear from you!
