Today, I'm happy that I'm reading and writing again. I've set reading goals and so far I'm on track. I had to adjust my reading goal. At first I had set it to read 5 books per week. Now, back in the day, that wouldn't be a problem--I read at least one book a day, sometimes more. Now, I don't want to set myself up for failure, so I'm shooting for 5 books per month:
1 romance1 mystery/thriller
And 1 "real" book, e.g., not on the Kindle
Now, this month, I'm exceeding my goal because I found out that two of my favorite authors will be in town soon--Sue Monk Kidd and Jen Lancaster. So, I downloaded their newest books to read and I will actually buy the hardback when I go there for their autographs. It's so exciting.
The writing portion of my goals is a little tougher and I have to have a schedule and really stick to it or it won't happen. So far though, I've expanded on my writing by writing this blog and my other, shared blog--three days a week each. I journal several times a week--that goal is for every day, but I don’t always have something to say. I'm working on that though . . . Even if it is just to say, thank you for the day, I need to write it down.
In the meantime, it's time to stop writing this and start reading.
Until next time, much peace and love . . . .
