What Did You Do This Week, Gail? Jan. 2 Ed.

My first week working with new goals and objectives. Yikes.

Goal 1. Adhere to Goals and Objectives. I experimented with the timekeeping app. More to say about that another time. I will just add that a done list is involved.

Goal 2. Generate New Work Through End Of April--Adult Novels. Worked on the second chapter of Seeking God.

Goal 3. Generate New Work, May Through August--Short Stories & Essays. While I'm  not actually working on this goal at this point in the year, I am trying to spend some time on short work ideas. Also, I read a great essay on culinary memoirs, a term I'd never heard before. I am now considering making all my essay writing this year about food.

Goal 6. Support And Promote Diverse Literature As A Means Of Helping To Maintain A Civil Culture. Picked up a great looking picture book at the library that supports this goal and ordered a picture book for Chinese New Year. Also started collecting some info for a couple of things I want to do related to this goal.

Goal 7. Community Building/General Marketing/Branding

That seems as if I did a lot, doesn't it?

I also spent an hour cleaning my desk/in-baskets, which I have no goal for. At one point, I thought I was just making things worse.
