Welcome to Pearson Report.
I am participating in the 2015 A to Z Challenge.
Yes, I will be adhering to my THEME Calendar.
Yesterday I touched upon COOL STUFF - namely Me and My Posse.
I hope you had fun looking “behind the scene” into the world of commenting, and what happens when bloggers use their comment areas for more than saying “great post”. Invest some time in your commenting and reap the rewards.
OKAY… HERE WE GO…
Today I will be talking about Goal Setting.
JUST DO IT
Nike took three little words and changed how we see our ability to do something.
These words inspire and motivate us to go beyond, and excel at the things we do, whatever they may be.
On January 1st I set a goal to do something about my writing, or lack thereof.
Everyday I would take FIFTEEN MINUTES and write.
I would write based on a photo prompt.
What that means is everyday, from a folder on my desktop, I take a random photo and write based on feelings evoked from looking at it.
I DO NOT THINK ABOUT THIS PHOTO
I FEEL IT - I BECOME IT - I AM ONE WITH IT
What happens next is magical - words appear from deep within and tell a story that often surprises me when my timer rings to signal the end of 15 minutes.
I have written a total of 53,137 words in three months.
(January - 18,363 February - 16,869 March 17,905)
For some this would be a novel.
At first I was afraid my imagination would run dry - that was January.
By mid February, those fears had left to be replaced with an odd sort of euphoria. I was getting a little rush from writing like this.
Now, I can’t imagine not doing my daily 15 minute photo prompt free write. Yes, that’s a mouthful, but that’s what it is.
I decided I wanted to live my dream, so I set a goal and I am on my way to achieving it.
That goal, by the way, is to have 365 free write pieces by the end of 2015. I know I will do it.
Do you DO SOMETHING special just for you?
