Goal Setting

I'm totally stealing Susan's public goal setting idea. At least for now.
Once the rest of my writing buddies get back from vacation, we'll start another writing challenge like we had last summer.
So, here's what I should accomplish by Saturday:
1. Finish youngest girl-child's bedroom reorganization.
2. Plant the flowers I brought home on Sunday.
3. Write - I had a decent day yesterday, but I need to do more. I'll set my writing goal for an average of 2,000 words per day. It should be higher, but there are some obligations that might throw me off this week.
4. Figure out a title for the current work in progress. It's an urban fantasy with a total kickass heroine. I'm thinking of a way to describe it, but all I can come up with is..."Dark Angel on The Island with The Terminator". I'm sure there's a better way than that, but maybe it'll come once I know the working title.
There you have it. I will report in on Saturday with my progress.
Tall Tale Tuesday coming once I lay in a supply of sustenance and take care of the house stuff.

Wow! Great goals. 2,000 words per day. Dang. I need me some motivation to keep up with the likes of you!

How about your title be In Spades because you've got it all going on in spades!

I'm still working on the less drooling goal. Still not looking too promising.

Writing challenge? Suddenly I feel fear. Which probably means I need it desperately.

I LOVE your high-concept pitch. That's what that is, you know. Dark Angel on The Island with The Terminator. It's excellent!

LOL - Ava. Hope the drooling thing gets better! :)

You do, Nat. It's time.

Thanks on the pitch!!
