December Goals

Given that December is full of holiday activities, I'm going to pare down my writing goals even more this month.

1. Blog 10 to 12 times.

2. Finish some more filing/organization of writing material. I thought I had finished this, except for buying file folders and filling them. Last night I bought those and filled them. However, I remembered I had a stack of writing stuff at work that I need to bring home and file. So I guess I'm not done yet. Writing seems to be a kind of paper chase.

3. More work on Life on a Yo Yo Life Group lesson series, which I begin teaching January 4.

4. See if I can flesh out the brainstorming work on the short Life Group lesson series from the Apocrypha. I looked at it a little last night, and unless I get something down on paper, I'm not sure I'll have a legitimate series.

5. Buy one writing magazine, as a Christmas present to myself, and read it.

6. Continue to work down my reading list. Since the book I'm currently reading is 736 pages, and I'm only on page 165, this may take all month.

Edited to add:
7. Complete the review I've started of Macaulay's essay on Ranke's History of the Popes.

I think I'll add this to my Christmas list. I say I'm going to do it and never do.

Thanks for coming by and posting. Usually I go to Barnes & Noble and grab three or four writing magazine, spend $2.15 or so on the largest house blend they have, and read while drinking. I should be putting that money into magazines and not stimulants.

Hope I see more of you here. And I will check out any blog you have.
