Trick or Treat or Goals

Got Goals Bloghop

The tough blow from last month… there has been an Internet storm of others feeling equally outraged.

Spent most of my time this month taking care of my niece. Maybe the election next month will bring more love and concern for others to the land on which I live.

On Wednesday, I got confirmation that a friend of mine passed away. I had a feeling he had, since he had been very bad off at the end. Still, it was hard finding out for sure.

And yup, I’m still in Twitter follow jail. Guessing I’ll need another 800 followers before I get out. Or I have to unfollow that many people. Ugh.

But I managed to cross off some of my goals for the year, so there’s that. And I have the schedule for the A to Z Challenge 2019 posted.

Become NaNoWriMo buddies with J Lenni Dorner please NaNoWriMo is coming! Click the cup for my profile & to be buddies.


  • Publish two decent-selling book series (speculative fiction)
  • Survive at least another 36 35Mischief Managed because @JLenniDorner accomplished this goal for 2018!

There’s also the Bucket List:

  1. Publish a book and sell 2,000 copies of it in one week or 8,000 copies of it in one month.
  2. Watch a meteor shower while in the Cranberry Lake area of New York or Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania. (USA)
  3. Visit Mount Sinai.
  4. Skydive
  5. Learn how to play checkers.

  7. Have dinner at Armando al Pantheon in Rome.

    I’m sorry about your friend. It’s really hard to lose someone close to you like that. Thinking of you.
