They (don't ask me who "they" are) say that when a person makes a goal that person should tell everyone they've ever met about said goal as it encourages accountability. A body is more likely to complete a goal if a lot of people know about it. So, you know, if you succeed they (your friends) can say "yay!"
On the flip side if you fail they can frown, and shake their heads in disapproval.
"That's neat, Random Pants," I hear you all saying, "but what's your point?" Well hold on Impatient! I'm gettin' there.
I registered for my Spring classes this week (come back! I promise I'm not off on a tangent) so my free time is quickly slipping away. Thus, I've made a goal (see, it all comes together). My plan is to have the sequel to Push (Push Back - save your snickers) published by January 13, 2013 - the day before my classes start. That gives me roughly fifty three days (at the time of this post) to complete, edit, and proof my book, and I think I can do it. I'm so confident, in fact, that I'm foolishly posting it here as a declaration to the world. Or to however many people actually read my blog.
I was looking for a countdown widget, but could only find a Mother's Day or World Cup countdown. It was weird. I could continue to search for a widget, but that would cut into my writing time, and nobody wants that. So, unless somebody wants to help me out (hint, hint) you'll all just have to keep count on your fingers.
One last item of business - the word of the day.
