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!
