  1. Best of luck with your goals and submissions. I've been following your goals for a bit. Thanks for posting them in AW.

  2. Thanks for stopping by! The monthly goals over at AW are helpful, but I've been a big fan of this weekly version here for a while. It gives me more visibility to what I need to achieve each week, which doesn't let me set back and wait. ;-)

  3. Heya, how you doing? Good luck for goals while I try to write something. January was slowest start but does working in mind count? =)

  4. Certainly it counts, but it's easier to keep track of how close you're getting if you have it written down. ;-)

    Everything is going okay around here...just trying to keep myself motivated. :-P

  5. Happy International Friendship Month to you, too!!

    Sorry to hear some unwise editors rejected your submissions. I admire your persistence!!

  6. I'm not always sure which side of that fine line I've taken, being persistent or trying to keep a lost cause alive. :-)


I love comments, and do my best to answer everyone who stops by...
