Goals for 2012, Things I'm Planning To Do

I heard about ROW80 awhile back, can say I remember from where but it sounded fun. A brand new round is starting January 2nd. You can find out more about it here. I want to write, I want to get out of this staring at my notebook or laptop rut I've been in and just start writing. Regardless if it's utter shit or not. That's what editing and revising is for. But if I don't start somewhere, then I fear that I will never get a novel or whatever it is brewing in my twisted mind completed or started for that matter.

So more screwing around, no more excuses, no more bullshit. BUT...I need to be held accountable. I need to be kicked in the ass every so often, at least in the beginning until it becomes habit.

Other things on my plate for the start of 2012 is:

Book of Days with the fabulous Effy Wild
52 Playdates with Jan Fox
Strathmore workshops (to do them not just scan the emails :D)
River of Stones January Challenge (this is open to anyone so just FB search it)

I also want to do as many FREE workshops as I possibly can handle. I plan to dive back into painting and working in my art journal. I want to, plan to open my Etsy shop some time in 2012. I'm not happy with the name I had set up under, so I'm trying to come up with a new one. My dilemma is what do I do if some one has a name like the one I want???

I also want to get back to cooking more. I want to start experimenting in the kitchen again, seeing what I can come up with. Or finding a recipe, but putting my own spin on it.

So...who's up for kicking me in the pants every now and then to make sure I'm keeping with my goals and following my dreams?


  1. I'm afraid I also need an occasional kick in the bottom to get me going.

  2. I am always happy to kick someone in the pants... gently of course! ROW80 is a lot of fun. You'll meet great people who love words and are also great encouragers ~ welcome!

  3. Just popping in from the ROW80 signups... Sounds as though you've got some great goals for this round! I'm definitely all for popping in for an occasional kick in the pants, if need be, but I will also bring along my pom poms to shake for you. *grins*

    Here's for a GREAT beginning to 2012!

  4. I'll boot you if you like - good goals -I to want to rediscover the kitchen - was always my intention when I retired to have more time there but I discovered writing!!
    all the best this week

  5. Thanks Alberta :D Looking forward to a friendly kick in keester :D
