Mailbox Monday #12, Writing Goal #2


Mailbox Monday on Sunday has returned. Mailbox Monday is sponsored by Marcia at The Printed Page. I only received one book in the mail this week, which is a fine departure from the last several weeks.

From Danielle at Sourcebooks, I received:

1. Two Shall Become One: Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy by Sharon Lathan


Writing Goal Week 1:


Apparently last week was not the week to start my writing goals. I was sick as a dog with some kind of flu or cold. I spent a lot more time sleeping and less time reading and writing.

This time I failed to meet my writing goal, though I do have a poem idea running around in my head.

Writing Goal Week #2:

I will repeat my goal from last week and accomplish it this week. I am determined. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am in myself. Here are the goals:

a. write one poem
b. write 5 pages for my novel
c. or rework my short story that I had shelved over the last few months.

Stop back tomorrow for my TLC Book Tour stop with Kirk Curnutt's Breathing Out the Ghost.

I wouldn't be so disappointed in yourself. You were sick, after all. Good luck this week.

I have the Sharon Lathan book, too. Can't wait to see what you think about it.

That book looks wonderful! I just received an email from the publicist, and it sounds fun.

Good luck on your writing goal.

I haven't posted any of my personal goals on my blog, but I exchange a 3-item "project list" with a good friend each week. It helps us both to feel accountable for tackling the goals, since we report progress (or replace an item that's completed with a new goal) each week.

Dawn: Thanks for mentioning that...what a great idea...now if I can get anna to join in the fun! LOL
