Motivational May

It's Monday and the first May Write Motivation check-in day!

I've kept my May Write Motivation goals short but sweet this month because so much of my time now is spent at the community college where I'm taking classes. I'm actually considering going beyond getting the certificate and possibly going for an Associate Degree, but I'm stil debating. Anyhow, going back to school has definitely reduced my writing time, so I have to work harder at the time management, and making smart, doable goals.

My May Goals:
1. Finish WIP#1 which is more than half done.
2. Finish WIP#2 which is exactly half done.
3. Blog 3 to 4 times a week.
4. Sub a short story.

There are all sorts of stories that I want to write - but I'm trying to keep a good, solid focus on finishing what I've started. That means getting the two WIPs completed, critiqued, edited, and submitted. My reward when that happens will be to work on one thing I want to work on - regardless of what it is.

If you're looking for an extra boost by a group of fantastic and super motivating people, then I highly recommend joining Write Motivation. You can also follow along on Twitter at #writemotivation. There are also plenty of cookies, homemade nibbles, teas and coffee - and you know, something stronger on those days you really it, and confetti!

Whether you join or not, I hope your May is full of inspiration, creativity, and productivity.
