Writing Regularly

So where have I been?  My last post was December 17th and the blog was only about a week old at that point. Good grief!  Is this blog going to be yet another blog begun with good intentions and abandoned within a month? 

The truth is, I have lots of excuses for where I’ve been since December 17th.  Let’s see:

- writing Christmas cards
- buying Christmas presents
- baking for two Christmas parties
- shoveling snow
- celebrating Christmas
- visiting family
- shoveling snow
- helping son by being editor, coach and cheerleader for college applications due January 1st
- getting financial records to take accountant on December 30th for a financial aid application due January 1st
- shoveling snow
- proofreading college essays, making more editorial suggestions, filling out the financial forms
- setting up writing critique group…

Wait, what was that last one?

Today I am setting up my writing critique group on Yahoo groups (we were on MSN groups which is ending February 1st). I belong to a critique group because there is a certain momentum that is gained by setting goals with a group.

That is also why I just joined a blogging challenge to blog every day for the next month.

So now, dear reader, there is hope that you will hear regularly from me for at least 30 days. I’m generally one determined lady when I latch on to a goal.

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll write more about the critique group, for now I need to publish this post!

    Saw your link on Colleen’s blogging challenge and I thought I’d pop in and say hello. I’m a writer thinking about self-publishing, so I’m going to subscribe.

      That’s great. I noticed YOUR post on Colleen’s callenge as well. I really like the domain, productivepen.com. So I’ll have to stop over and return the visit, though probably not tonight. First I must make the critical daily new post!
