A month of Lucky Goals

The BIG EXCITEMENT this month comes not from the luck of the Irish, but from my two favorite blogging events of the year.

First, it’s time to GET READY TO RUMBLE!

Write club 2016

Reading with hot drink of coffee or tea imageThere’s nothing better than reading two short stories (under 500 words each) followed by giving feedback and voting one on to the next round. Imagine discovering the next JK Rowling, Stephen King, or Agatha Christie! And maybe being one of people who gets that future-famous author a publishing deal.
Only the BEST entries earn the honor of competing in WRiTECLUB. Join me in the fun.Reading and laughing with hot drink of coffee or tea image

Then the A to Z Challenge kicks off with the theme reveal!

    Blog hops are so much fun, and great for meeting new bloggers. Sounds like you’re going to have a busy month. Enjoy!

    1. Yes, they really are. I try to always keep busy.

  1. I love bloghops. They are fun and a great way to meet new bloggers. Your enthusiasm for blogging is refreshing seeing so many people are dropping out saying they have nothing to blog about anymore. It looks like you have achievable goals and I wish you success in March!

    Looks like you’re doing great!

    I actually managed to sneak in one book yesterday before the end of the month, and crossed the 60k mark yesterday, but mostly I can say I haven’t read nearly enough.

    1. Great work! That’s how goals get done, one bit at a time.

  2. Another challenging list of goals! You are an inspiration 🙂

    1. Thank you so much.

  3. I’m not sure if my comment went through, so I will try again!

    Your to do list makes me tired just reading it. Best of luck getting it all done.

    I’m doing the A-Z in a group blog. I’m getting lazy in my old age.
