I’ve seen this so many times myself, and I wanted to share this with you all. This is reblogged from another writer over at The Boeskool.
I’ve never been punched in the face. Not in an actual fight, at least. I’m not much of a fighter, I suppose… More of an “arguer.” I don’t think I’m “…

So I’m going to try to make this Little Bits of Happiness blog post a monthly thing for you. It’s not always going to be about reading, but that’s really what’s kinda on my mind right now, so deal with it (in the nicest way possible).Read More »
I really meant to keep up my posting schedule over the last two weeks. Unfortunately, when you’re on the other side of the world, some of the things you were going to do start to slip away.Read More »
It’s almost February, so how are you doing with your resolution? Have you lost all 50 pounds, gone to the gym every day, and read those 30 books on your list? Ok. I’m being a jerk for a reason: I really don’t like resolutions.
Goals are great! I actually bought a new paper-based daily/weekly planner for that reason (more on the Passion Planner later). I love setting and achieving goals, but more importantly, they give me something to work toward. Without them, I feel like I am drifting.
How do you know where you’re going without some sort of roadmap? It doesn’t matter if you ever really get to the destination, but you’ve got to start somewhere.
So it’s almost February. Why not take stock of how you’ve come in the last month? Instead of totally scrapping the resolution/goal/roadmap, why not try to take a different turn at it? Instead of going to the gym every day, maybe you can make it to the gym twice a week? Instead of writing 1000 words a day, try writing for 15 minutes. Perhaps you can eat vegetarian dinners instead of trying to go all day without meat? And as always, celebrate your successes. Going to the gym 3 times in January is a great start! It’s three times more than I made it to a gym, certainly!
What resolutions or goals have you made, and are you planning on revising them?
One of my biggest struggles is with perfectionism. This manifests itself in so many ways: the ways that I treat my friends and family, the standards I hold myself to, and definitely the self-talk that I engage in.

It’s that time of year again, and I’ve once again made a slow start. If you don’t know, it’s National Novel Writing Month, and so for the next 30 days writers of all levels from all over the world will be racing to meet that 50,000 word goal.
I have, as usual, started out with no plan, and I even missed the first day of writing, but I am determined to beat my 13,000 word story from last year.
Who knows? Maybe it’ll even happen. The important thing is to write something for me every day. And ya know what? It’s November. Magical things can happen!
