Goals Brought In By Einstein the Camel in the Snow

Got Goals Bloghop

I made a post yesterday of what’s been going on in my life lately. Here’s the good highlight:
I won NaNoWriMo!

Nanowrimo 2018 winner

On the downside, Roundteam has gone down. Which was a big part of the way I supported Diverse Books and Debut Authors. (Lots of Retweets.) I will need to create a new goal in relation to those.

And now, here’s Einstein:


  • 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.
  6. Take a hot-air balloon ride over Maine.
  7. Have dinner at Armando al Pantheon in Rome.

Current Writing End Goals

From the End Goals of an Author post.

  • Self-publish Anah’s Story by March 20Naughty List because @JLenniDorner failed to accomplish this goal
  • Find a way (emotionally, mentally) to complete the high fantasy short story.
  • Redo the longer version of the tribal story, then self-publish it in 2018.

  1. Nice going on the NaNo win!

    Einstein the camel is so random. 😀
    Find on Twitter:

    1. It was the craziest thing here. And now that camel has all kind of merchandise and makes guest appearances. I’m not kidding. To be fair, he’s the only camel in this area that isn’t part of a zoo or something.
      Find on Twitter:

  2. Congrats on the NaNo win. I am in awe of all your goals and accomplishments. I need to get more consistent with mine! Don’t know if you got my message about losing the e-mail with the instructions/link to send you my blog post for the A to Z. I am working on it now and it should be done by this weekend to be able to post next week.

    1. Just replied to your email. Sorry, haven’t been around much the last few days.
      Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
      Find on Twitter:

  3. Well done on the NaNoWriMo win! Huge achievement!

    Hope your December is just as successful!
