Late last month I wrote about my goal of writing 50 thousand words this month as part of Digital Writing Month. Some 26 days later, I know that I won’t reach that goal; at least not in the way I had totally envisioned. Now, I could spend a lot of time feeling frustrated about this….but why? I created this goal for myself, during what I knew was going to be a busy and hectic month. The reality is that I was probably overly enthusiastic and perhaps even a little too ambitious.
So the question is this; by not reaching my original goal – have I failed? Perhaps yes….perhaps no. I’m not going to agonize over it. Instead, I’m celebrating the various things that I have done and that I will continue to do in the days to come. Below is a List.ly of a selection of the various things that I have been working on this month. Regardless of my word count, I’m producing content for various projects. I’m also being a lot more strategic in the way that I’m fitting everything together.
