It Begins

And by “it” I mean summer.

I’m not going to lie. I *heart* summer. It’s my favorite season by miles and miles. Always has been. Shorts? Check. Swimsuits? Check. Sundresses? Check. Sunscreen (yes, I always use it)? Check. Sandals? Check.

Vacation plans? Yep. (In two weeks, peeps! TWO!)

Boating plans? Absolutely.

Water in the nearby lakes. Uh. Let’s cross our fingers.

Writing time? Um…well. That one gets a little tricky. But. I do have goals, and I intend to accomplish said goals, DESPITE the fact that it might mean staying inside sometimes, or staying awake when I’m tired, or skipping a trip to the pool.

Why? Because I’m a writer. That’s what I do. When I don’t have time to write, I create it.

My goals: Draft a new novel, complete edits on and begin querying my current WIP, write one or two short stories (for the fun of it), and, well. Keep querying. (Because that’s another thing I do—a lot.)

Oh, also, I’d like to go to WorldCON in Chicago (somehow), turn my ab-flab into a six-pack, and get a nice, even tan.

How about you? What are your goals this summer?

Dear Nichole's Goals,

You are excellent. You make me happy. I hope you all come true and make Nichole happy, too. Maybe someday you can be my goals. I would like to do all of these things also.

Much love,

If you have ab-flab, I'll do 100 pushups. Seriously. Good goals. You can do it!

Carolyn V said...

Ohhh, I want a cruise! *sigh*

My goal this summer is to finish my first draft of my new wip. Yay!

Nichole Giles said...

Dear Jenn, you may borrow my goals anytime. Because your happiness often spreads to me and that makes me smile. Sincerely, Nichole.

Elana, I do! I swear. Okay, it's not lots, but it's there and I will vanquish it. But not with push ups. Sit ups are the key, I think.

Carolyn, go go go! I know you can do it. And if you want a cruise, I suggest you pick one and book it, then pay on it a little at a time. You'll never regret it.
