That sounds great. Best of luck! I was surprised to get a response from my school bookstores, since I'm self-published, and they are Barnes & Nobles Stores. Didn't think I had much of a chance of even getting a reply. To be honest, I almost didn't send them the emails requesting that they consider my book, but I'm glad I did. Apparently, they have some kind of system where they can buy a certain number of books, and if they don't sell after a period of time, they can send them back, and not lose money. If I can find the old email about how they chose to carry my book, I'll share it here.
Someone reminded me that if I never ask, then the answer is always going to be no; so now I take more chances and hope for the best. :)
Yesterday I didn't meet any of my goals because I had so much studying to do but I knew that I had four days ahead of me and could catch up. It didn't help that yesterday I had a headache that I simply couldn't get rid of even after taking OTC medicine.
Today I woke up with a low grade fever. Well,that explains the tenacious headache. It also throws my intentions of catching up slightly out of whack because I have to study seven chapters by next Tuesday and play nano-catch-up on my lost day of writing.
We'll see if my body will allow me to do anything I had hoped to do today.
I love this discussion. I'm excited and encouraged by all the writing goals so many of you are accomplishing, alongside heavy demands on your time and energy. Amazing. Thank you for sharing.
I'm also buoyed by the honesty of others who have had days when goals are not met. I agree with those who have said that goals are best addressed one day at a time. Rather than reflect on results of the previous day, I try to move forward with the new day God's given me.
For my part, I'm challenged by health issues. As a bottom line goal, I write a twitter tale and post it everyday, but I haven't succeeded in that the last couple of days, until today. I hope next week to immerse myself in editing my novel. Though it didn't happen this week, each day brings another opportunity.
My goal for the day is to do a daily labyrinth writing postcard and a daily poem for the November PAD, and to write one of 17 more entries for news from a small town 2011 - stories and poems that could be true.
