Short Term Goals
Last week I finished a short term goal (yay for me!). I drew a picture for a small art contest. Although I am 99.9% sure it will not win, I felt the exercise of the process would be worth the effort. My picture turned out pretty good. Once I get the rejection notice I will have to post a scanned copy of it for my readers.
Now it is time for me to set a new short term goal. Here are some I am considering:
1. I am not a fiction writer, but I am considering participating in a contest sponsored by Precision Editing Group. I have long been intrigued by a romance my DH's grandparents and could use that as a storyline. The problem is that the contest is tomorrow... I need to make up my mind soon.
2. This is the year of the dreaded 40th birthday. I think I want to do some sort of physical challenge on my birthday, or near it. I have thought about hiking the Grand Canyon that day. Or maybe biking a marathon. Any suggestions?? I have 6 months left to prepare.
3. A home improvement project--maybe repainting the living room or redoing the master bedroom closet. I would love to redo the kitchen too, but am not sure my marriage could survive such a big, expensive, messy project :-)!
Which one(s) should I go for? What short-term goals are you working on now?
