Hello, my madnificent March Madness friends!
It’s time for your Tuesday Top-Up! But first, we need to give away ANOTHER PRIZE from our huge prize-arsenal. Today’s winner is…
Congratulations! Stop by our goal-setting post and choose your prize from those still listed. Email Denise at d(at)denisejaden(dot)com with your choice, and we’ll get it out to you as soon as possible.
And for those of you who didn’t win today, there are still LOTS of great prizes to be won, so keep checking in each day. (And hey, if you haven’t signed up and you’re thinking goals? madness? PRIZES? Why am I not doing this?! IT’S NOT TOO LATE! You can still SET YOUR GOALS AND JOIN THE FUN. We’d love to have you join us!)
Speaking of goals and fun… Wanna know a secret? I’m not having fun. (I know…what a sorry excuse of a host I am!) See, the project I was so excited about starting for March Madness–well, the idea’s not singing to me any more, that’s for sure. And so instead of happily dashing off messy-first-draft words during my writing time, I’m dragging my feet (ie. surfing the net, cleaning the bathrooms, basically doing anything except for writing). But I really want to move forward! I really want that sense of accomplishment at the end of the month. And I realized there’s a simple solution… revision! No, not of an old project (well, maybe ;) ). I’m talking about a revision of my goals. I said I wanted to write 20k words, and I still do. But who says it has to be all on one project?
Just tweaking my goal to allow for working on a variety of things has already got me excited about today’s writing time. The joy is back, and there should always be joy! (Even though writing is hard, I figure if there’s no joy, I’m doing it wrong.)
How are things going for you? Are you having fun with the Madness? If not, why not take a few minutes to reconnect with the joy — think about why you’re doing this, what you love about it, and how awesome it’s going to feel to reach your goal. :D
Okay, you know what time it is, right?
You got it! It’s Desk Dance Party time!
Are you revved up and ready to boogie toward your goals? Let us know how you’re doing, and then get back at it! Onward!
