Looking Ahead

I need goals to get things done.  I was spurred to a recent quilt finish by a UFO challenge.  I quit procrastinating about a pile of grading when I rewarded myself after every 5 papers done.  Yes, as an adult, I should just do the things I know I need to do, but sometimes we all need that little push.

 I have always wanted to be an author.  I dabble with writerly efforts, and every November an event called NaNoWriMo rolls around…National Novel Writing Month.  I have participated for several years.  My first attempt yielded 5,000 words, well short of the professed goal of 50,000 words in a month.  As the plague victims in the Holy Grail claimed, I am getting better! (LOL, gotta love Monty Python)  Last year, I was up to 18.000 words.  This year, I have a solid idea and I have begun outlining my story.

As a warm up exercise, I declare this will be Blog-tober.  You will find a new post, yes, with quilty content, every day in October.  I have my list of topics ready, and I am looking forward to sharing alot of fun quilting ideas in the month ahead!
