Before we get started, allow me to do just one quick thing…
1. Complete first draft of the Terrible, Horrible No-Good, Bad Romance novel.
I’m close to being done with this. I know I have said this before and it’s proven to be nothing more than a big, fat lie, but I think I might mean it this time. And I know I have said that about this before and it’s proven to be nothing more than a big, fat lie, but it’s different now. Probably. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen that I’m now working on the very last scene: the happy ending. This is as close as I have ever felt to being done with this project. So close that I’m actually a little pissed that I couldn’t get it wrapped up before January ended. I mean, I don’t know about you, but it felt to me like January lasted approximately nine million days. Nine million days, and I still didn’t manage to finish this draft.
This happy(ish) ending will be the death of me. May February be the month I manage to cross over that finish line.
2. Read four books.
I’m proud to say that I’m already behind in my 2019 reading goal, and I don’t expect to catch up anytime soon. This month, I am looking to not fall any farther behind. I suspect this may be aided by the fact that football season is over and baseball season has not yet started.

like Fat cat, so I decided to go with this instead.
3. Walk at least three miles every day or a total of 84 miles for the month.
This is the one goal on which I am actually ahead. I hope to keep it that way. I’ll have to work a little harder now that I won’t be pacing during playoff games, but I’m sure I can find something else over which to fret.
And you know what? I think that’s it for goals this month. Or it could just be that I’m currently too distracted by
